Once again, the club has appointed Judi Hoare to the position of volunteer coordinator for the 2018 event.
Judi has a wealth of knowledge and experience with Finke gained over 30 years as a previous club employee and current volunteer – Judi is also one of just five life members of the Finke Desert Race club.
As last year the club have nominated team leaders for the various areas of volunteering and Judi will liaise directly with and support them.
Expressions of interest (now open) will see people apply for advertised roles in categories where volunteers are needed and Judi will then assign them to a team leader who will make contact with them.
Judi’s role will be to act as overall coordinator working with appointed team leaders and providing a link back to the committee. She will also support the admin officer Giselle Greenfield with volunteer enquiries.
It is anticipated that there will be in excess of 300 volunteers at this year’s event and we welcome people opting to help in multiple roles both before and across the race weekend.
