We will be sure to get you on your way by 7:00 pm for those of you who have busy agendas for your Friday night.

We have a special link for you to do two things: (1) suggest your favorite home-made meal you miss so much and would love to find at this gathering. (2) Indicate to us that you would like to receive a ride from on-base to the downtown gathering site overlooking the Oak Harbor Bay.

The Water Festival is back for another great year of races, dances, music, stories, songs, activities for children, great food and more, but we can't do it without you.  
 
This year's festival will be Saturday, May 18 from 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM.  As always, we are guaranteeing lovely weather.  Volunteering is easy.  We have a new, snazzy, very chill website which contains a link to the  Signup Genius page where you pick what you want to do and when you want to do it.
 
The PCWF tradition dates all the way back to the 1930's.  It was interrupted by WWII, re-established in 1991, interrupted again by Covid for 3 years and returned better than ever in 2023.  Keep in mind: you are not just helpers, you are ambassadors.  Coupeville has the distinction of being the only site on the racing circuit for these culturally important, uplifting canoe races that is not on a tribal reservation. We are very proud of this opportunity to promote cross-cultural bridge building.  
 
Here's all you need to do: 
1.         Please go to:  penncovewaterfestival.org
2.         Click on the "Volunteer" button on the home page
3.         Under "Ways to get involved" you'll find the link to volunteer which takes you to the "Sign Up Genius" page
4.         On Sign Up Genius page you can review tasks and times and sign up for those best suited to you. *Note: a few jobs are Friday, May 17, the day before the festival.
On the day of your assignment we ask you to arrive at the Dispatch Center in the Rec Hall (901 NW Alexander) 15 minutes before your shift begins.  You will also be required to check out from there after your shift.  We want to be sure everyone is safe and accounted for.
 
Here are the jobs and time slots that require strong Navy personnel:

 (4) Whidbey Island Marathon.
 
Help is needed April 20 and 21 for the Whidbey Island Marathon.
 
Water Station Group Support:
 
We’re looking for ONE (1) more group of 4+ individuals to staff our last on-course water station along the marathon course
Timeline varies based on location but timeframe is typically about a 3 hr shift in the am from 8:30am - 12pm or so
 
What I’m looking for is interested individuals to email me at jared@fizzeventsnw.com - I then work with them to assign a station (in a location of their choosing). They act as the team captain and communicate with their group what’s needed. We’ve had families, youth groups, clubs, friends and military commands sign up and help out. Groups of 4 can handle a station no problem on the marathon route.
 
Attire - Comfortable clothing, but remember its outside so take the weather into account. They’ll be setting up the water station, handing cups to participants then tidying up afterwards.
 
My crew will drop all of the water station supplies the day before, all the group has to do is show up, set it up, fill cups and hand them out. When the last runner goes by they clean the station back up and my crew collects everything.
 
In the past - Navy commands have volunteered and ran a station together. It is a great way for team building while supporting the public. We will also provide community service letters from the mayor after the event for everything that supports the event. It’s a pretty easy gig and turns out to be pretty fun.
 
Date is Sunday, April 21
Location varies depending where placed on course route - In 2024 it would be near Olympic Elementary
Timeframe - 8am - 12pm (but hours vary based on location)
 
*all ages are welcome and people are always welcome to bring snacks, chairs, music and more to have fun and keep the runners motivated!
 
 
Event Packet Pickup & Finish Line Volunteers Needed (Great for individuals or families as well)
 
The Whidbey Island Marathon is also looking for individual volunteers to assist at the event both the day prior to race day and at the finish line.
 
Saturday Pre-Race Packet Pickup
Date: Saturday April 20
Time: 12pm - 6pm (There are two separate shifts that individuals can sign up for)
Location: Windjammer Park Interpretive Center
 
We are searching for individual volunteers to support runners and provide them with their necessary race materials prior to race day. All volunteers will receive a thank you recognition letter from the mayor as well as lunch during packet pickup. If volunteering with a friend, we’ll keep you together.
 
Sunday Race Day Volunteers
Date: Sunday April 21
Time: Shifts Vary (we have morning and mid-morning shifts)
Location: Windjammer Park Interpretive Center
 
On Sunday, race day, we are looking for volunteers to come out and support the race. We have plenty of volunteer positions that need to be filled including pre-race packet pickup, gear check, finish line support, medal distribution and more. All volunteers will once again receive a recognition thank you letter highlighting their community service hours from the mayor for their support and lunch/snacks during the day. Packet pickup opens at 7am and the event lasts til 2pm but the race will make arrangements for individuals/groups/families that may need to leave early.
 
Your support is what makes this event happen each year, so thank you in advance!

The USNSCC is composed of two programs – the senior program for cadets age 13 through the age of 18, and the Navy League Cadet Corps (NLCC), which is for cadets ages 10 through 13.
