As official Balloon Race Aeronauts, volunteers are trained in crewing hot-air balloons and get to serve on chase crews during the event. In addition, Aeronauts also help with security and setting up and breaking down the field, all while learning about one of the community’s most treasured nonprofit, community events.
Volunteering for any amount of time is valuable and a number of different shifts is available, ranging from four to six hours in length. Interested volunteers must attend the next two meetings:
• 5:30 p.m. Aug. 17 at the Nevada Air National Guard SANGA Club
• 5:30 p.m. Sept. 7 at Rancho San Rafael Regional Park
