There are a variety of areas where we will be placing volunteers, noted on the application (Gate Greeter, Golf Cart Shuttle Driver, Merchandise Sales, Merchandise load in / load out, Where Most Needed / Other).

We will only place you in one shift, but you are able to request more than one shift by indicating that in the comments section at the end of your application. Additional shifts are not guaranteed, and will depend on availability.
