2015 DockDogs Northern Stars Voucher Program

We need your help to make our events successful. There are many opportunities available for you
to help at an event. For each event, a general volunteer list is created and people can sign up for
one job or as many jobs as you would like. The more you work the more money you save on Wave
fees and merchandise.

At an event, there is a sign up sheet at the Registration desk that you can inquire if your help is
needed. Additionally, if you know that you will be coming to an event, please contact Becky Brown
or Cheri McClaine with what you would like to volunteer for.

As a member of DDNS you will have the opportunity to receive discounted wave fees through our
voucher program. Helping/working at any of our DDNS events by assisting with various jobs you can
earn "DDNS bucks": wrangling, setup, tear down, announcers, wranglers, timers/averagers, etc. DDNS
bucks can be used up to the $10.00 DockDogs fee.
