I always knew that volunteers were critical to the success of a large event, but I really had no idea how hard they work. I also didn't understand all the logistics involved. After volunteering for back-to-back shifts at the Ragnar SoCal, I have a much better idea of what is required.
Action 363 - Load The Truck. I worked for hours taking inventory and restocking supply boxes, sorting and stacking road signage, and offloading vans full of safety gear. It is a serious effort to put on a Ragnar Relay, and there is way more logistics involved than I realized.
I'm glad I volunteered but never again. I will, though, make it a point to thank the volunteers at any future Ragnar event.
