COR 2021 Application - Volunteers
Chain of Records 2021 is set for October 21-24 in Winter Haven, FL. This event is open to all skiers that have the ability to attempt national and world records. There are a lot of moving parts to an event this big and we need tons of volunteers to help out. Even if you don't ski, there's most likely a spot for you to help out. Skiers, we need you too. Please volunteer on days that you don't ski to help with all the various record attempts. Please note that all volunteers that do anything out on the water (even on the starting docks or platforms) will need to be active members of USA-Waterski by the time of the event. All participants will need to fill out a USA-Waterski COVID release form. Here is what we are looking for . . .
Videographers (record evidence) - Video cameras will be provided for this. These people will be situated either along shore or in chase boats alongside the record attempt to record specific evidence for Guinness, NSSA and USHA.
Photographers - Are you into photography and want to help out? Photographers need to bring their own cameras to capture not only the action on the water but also behind the scenes at the various record attempts. Copies of your images (memory cards) will be taken at the end of each record attempt to help gather evidence for Guinness, NSSA and USHA. Please note that we lose all licensing rights to anything submitted to a record granting agency.
Videographers (overall event) - Have your own video gear and want to help out? We are looking for those folks that want to capture the overall event, not just evidence required by Guinness. This would mean capturing the "big picture" video of the record attempts as well as some behind-the-scenes action. These are more the glamour shots, but this video coverage will most likely also be used as evidence for the record granting agencies. Copies of your video (memory cards) will be taken at the end of each record attempt to help gather evidence for Guinness, NSSA and USHA. Please note that we lose all licensing rights to anything submitted to a record granting agency.
Drone Pilot - Looking for a couple of drone pilots to cover the record attempts from the air. Please note that any drone pilots will need to have the FAA part 107 license and comply with the new 2019 USA-Waterski drone regulations.
Chase Boat Drivers - Some records require chase boats to run along with the record attempt to capture photo and video evidence for the record granting agencies. Chase boat drivers must be USA-Waterski certified. These boats will sometimes double as pick up boats when needed. Bonus if you have a boat that can act as a chase boat. Boats that are already insured through USA-Waterski are the easiest to bring to the event. If your boat is insured through your own private insurance we will need to see a copy of your insurance policy and it must meet USA-Waterski requirements.
Pin Pullers - Are you really good at pulling pin (release) for show ski acts? Really really good at it??? We are looking for just those couple rare folks that have a talent for this, have the ability to stay razor focused and put their skiers behind the boat first! If you volunteer for this, please don't be offended if we have a few follow up questions for you. We want to make sure we have just the right people in the boats for this one! You would be pulling pin for the largest lines ever pulled in show skiing.... 50+ ballet ladies, 25 doubles couples, 16 sets of trios, etc.
Pick Up Boat Driver - Each of these large record attempts will require between 1 and 8 pickup boats at each attempt depending on size of the record being attempted. We need drivers for pick up boats. Bonus if you have a boat that can act as a pick up boat. Boats that are already insured through USA-Waterski are the easiest to bring to the event. If your boat is insured through your own private insurance we will need to see a copy of your insurance policy and it must meet USA-Waterski requirements.
Pick Up Boat Rider - A number of pickup boat riders will be needed for these large record attempts. Remember that a USCG approved vest is now needed at all times while riding in a pick up boat. Please bring one along when you come.
Trunk / Leader Wranglers - Want to be directly involved with the big lines leaving the starting platform? We will need a number of people to manage the long trunk/leader lines being used for some of the larger attempts. Generally a pair of people are needed for each line to manage them from getting tangled as the boat idles out to the point where it pulls the skiers from the starting platform.
Early Morning Setup - Don't mind getting up early?? If that's the case then we have the job for you! Oct 22 and 23 will require very early event setup. These record days will start very early and require an early morning setup crew. Work includes getting floaters/barges into position as a starting platform, anchoring the floaters, setting measurement buoys w/ anchors, etc.
Ticket Takers - Most Guinness records require that we go through a ticket collection process prior to making the attempt for attendance purposes. These attempts require help collecting tickets and keeping track with a counter as each participant moves through the check in line.
Registration / Attendance - Both NSSA and Guinness records require that we keep accurate attendance of all participants in each record attempt. Record leaders will need help making sure lists are accurate for submission to the record granting agencies.
Judges - Senior rated judges for NSSA, we are looking for you as well!!!
** Please fill out the registration form below and check off any positions you wish to help with. We will be in touch to work on scheduling with you. Volunteers are always free and there is no registration charge for you if you are not skiing. Thank you for being willing to help out.
