Oswegatchie is thankful for the volunteers that make this event possible. It takes true volunteerism to travel countless miles, work on difficult or dirty tasks, and sacrificing the event highlights because you are needed elsewhere. Often the volunteers here for a weekend will also need to stay in cold cabins when we overflow our winterized buildings.
We are looking for 4 types of volunteer work.
Oswegatchie does have preferences for seasoned volunteers during the AdironDUCK Race weekend. Returning volunteers tend to be reassigned to the same job year after year to make improvements and create consistency. As volunteers prove themselves as competent, they are moved to more involved tasks! This does not mean better jobs, since every volunteer task is challenging. In 2013, we had 1,950 people on property in 6 hours. We parked 680 cars! Everybody had to hustle and be creative. It was an excellent day!
Due to our lack of winterized housing, we are looking for more volunteers that would be able to come in from the local area. Background checks may be a part of the volunteer process. Contact us with questions.
