Race Day Volunteering

DSE relies solely on volunteers to put on more than 40 races per year. We hope all members will volunteer at least once per year! You can help with registration or clean-up and also run a Sunday race. Race directors earn volunteer points AND 12 age division points. Woo hoo!

To serve as a Race Director, see the Race Director Page

Folding Sessions

Each month DSE volunteers get together to prepare newsletters to mail to those members that opted to receive a printed newsletter. If you are willing to host a session, please contact Jane Colman at janecol@lmi.net or (510) 652-3116. Please refer to the current Newsletter for the date and location of the next Folding Session. Hosts and volunteers typically contribute to potluck food or drink, but it is not required. Newsletters, labels, stamps, and tape will all be supplied by the editor and membership coordinator. Folding session hosts earn 1 volunteer point for hosting.
