Volunteers are needed for the Great Reno Balloon Race on Sept. 7-9 at Rancho San Rafael Regional Park in Reno.
The Great Reno Balloon Race is the world’s largest free hot air ballooning event.
Those who register will be a part of the Aeronauts, the official volunteer group of the event.
Volunteers are trained in crewing hot air balloons and have the opportunity to serve on chase crews during the event. In addition, Aeronauts help with security and setting up and breaking down the field.
Shifts are available to fit varying schedules, ranging from four to six hours.
Anyone interested is encouraged to attend the upcoming Aeronaut meetings to learn more:
• July 18
• Aug. 15
All meetings are at 5:30 p.m. at the SANGA Club, 1776 National Guard Way, in Reno.
