Safety Volunteers Needed for 2019 GOODE Water Ski Nationals

To:  All Safety Directors

 From:  George Levien (skigeorge@mindspring.com)
 
I have the privilege of being Chief Safety Director of the 2019 GOODE Water Ski National Championships hosted by Ski Club of the Palm Beaches on August 6-10, 2019 at Okeeheelee Park in West Palm Beach, Fla.
 
I’m looking for a few safety volunteers to be assigned for the week. You would receive a hotel room and lunch daily.
 
For those of you not familiar with Okeeheelee Park, it consists of five separate lakes spread out over about 300 acres so a lot of coverage is required.
 
If you cannot commit for the week, we could use any help you can give us. If you are coming to Nationals or are in the area and can spend some time volunteering, that would be great. Any amount of time, from a few hours to as long as you want to spend would really help out. Even an hour or two on the day you ski would be appreciated.
 
If you are interested, please contact me directly.
 
Thank you,
