Bend Beer Chase

Team Volunteer Requirements

All Beer Chase teams are responsible for providing 1 volunteer.  1-2 person teams are not required to provide a volunteer.

To fulfill the volunteer requirement, teams may choose between the following options:

  1. Supply Your Own Volunteer – provide 1 volunteer who is available any time Saturday to work a 4-6 hour shift anywhere out on the course.  Volunteers can be assigned to a morning, afternoon, or early evening shift.  We do not take volunteer requests and cannot guarantee your volunteer’s location or time commitment.
  2. Hire-a-Volunteer (HAV) – donate $125 so that we can partner with local charities and community groups who will 1 provide volunteer on the course for your team. 100% of your funds are donated to these worthy organizations.
