and I are looking for six more volunteers, four to help with the field
events and two for the track races.
The field events Serpentine
will be judging are the men’s and women’s Hammer and men’s and
women’s Pole Vault. The good news is that these are at the start of
the programme, so you only need be available for a limited time, 11.30am to
about 3.00pm, although you’re very welcome to stay on if you’d like
to. With the hammer, you’ll be part of a team of 5 or 6 and be
involved with things like measuring distances thrown, collecting the
implements and returning them to the competitors. With the Pole Vault
judging you will be part of team of three. Duties will include
setting the bar at the correct height and adjusting the uprights to the
correct position (these are the stands on which the bar balances: every
athlete will have their own personal set-up for each jump).
the track judging you’ll be part of a team that will include judges from
the visiting clubs. Amongst the tasks will be deciding the finishing
order of the runners in the various races. The track judges will need
to be available from 11.45am until 4.45pm-5.00pm.
