Your job is to get the participants in the water and going.
Your main concern is to brief them on the game rules, which roughly include:
Teammates cannot push a boat to a start but are allowed to help their team member into the boat
The team is allowed to help turn the boat around, once a member returns back
They need to sail AROUND the flagpole/buoy
Tell them what the rules are on the beer side “Run to the middle, chug a beer – don’t stop drinking until you’re told you are done – run back to the edge, spin around 10 times, and get in the boat”
Stand behind the little wooden bench and wait for contestants to arrive.
Always have all four beers for the heat opened and ready in front of you.
When a contestant arrives, hold the beer out in front of you. They chug, NO SHAKING/SWIRLING,
you tell them when they’re done, and you grab the bottle (we do not want any shattered glass
anywhere because they drop it !!!).
Keep the bottle in your hand (don’t want to slow down the participants) and run with them to the marked area at the end of the platform.
You count while they spin around 10 times. Yell “done”, “færdig”, whatever you feel like, when they’re done.
Make sure people don’t drown.
Flip the kayaks if they tip over.
Turn the kayaks around, while the contestants are chugging their beer.
Inform the contestants of the time slots they are competing in.
It is your job that the teams are around the start/finish judges BEFORE their heat begins.
Also, update the scoreboard, serve beer, and stock up.
In charge of maintaining what is happening on the screens, and updating brackets during the event.
The sound guys will most likely be able to show you how it works and we will provide you with a PowerPoint template/structure.
Your main purpose is to support other areas.
Help solve problems that may arise,
Potentially help with lunch/beverages for other areas,
Solve issues at the sponsor booths and answer questions,
Basically, be on top of everything.
Document the event by taking cool pictures or videos.
The sobers are the superheroes if an accident should occur.
