    A water trial depends on its volunteers to run the event. Each level ( Junior, Apprentice, Working, Courier and Master) requires a minimum of 4 stewards. We asked that you join us this weekend as a volunteer, for either a full or partial day. Volunteers are welcomed  for either Saturday, Sunday or both days. Not all positions require experience or skill. The volunteer responsibilities needed are as follows:

    Gate Steward- Check for presence of a life jacket, appropriate shoes, no attachments on the dogs collar and that the dog is wearing a harness.

    Land Steward- This varies from Junior to Master, but includes throwing a dummy up to 60 feet,  placement of  a gear bag, placement of  a float line  and  holding a dog’s harness at the Junior level. Little experience required, though  some experience required for dummy throwing at the Apprentice level.  

    Rowers- There are two rowers required for Junior, Apprentice, Working, Courier and Master.   One of the two rowers in Junior will just help steady the boat.  Ditto for apprentice ( no rowing or experience required). Both rowers need to row for the other three levels. May include throwing of the dummy.

    Boat Steward- This includes steadying the boat and dropping the float line from the boat.
