Tim: Day 9
We, as a group, have been luckily enough to volunteer for two sports at the World Games. The first sport we were tasked with was American Football. I worked mainly with the media division during the American Football games, but also floated to other departments if they needed help. My responsibility during the games was to make sure all media members were in their designated zones. Most of the photographers and journalists knew where they were supposed to be, but some were in areas they were not allowed to be in. I was basically like security. The second sport we get to volunteer for is Speedway. I had no idea exactly what Speedway was before the World Games. I found out the sport is extremely popular in Europe, and like NASCAR on motorbikes. I was originally supposed be working in information during Speedway, but now am going to be working ticketing. This sometimes happens with volunteering as things change.
