Tour de Fat Volunteers needed

Tuesday, July 24th, 2012

TDF Mainstage image
Saturday, Sept. 1st – TOUR de FAT hits the streets of Fort Collins; Once again this year the Co-op will benefit from a percentage of beer sales and sales of T-shirts and New Belgium merchandise. We still have 50 shifts to fill here. Since we trained so many Co-op volunteers last year in TIPS, we won’t be requiring new volunteers to take this training this year. If you took the training last year, please signup again this year and bring that TIPS experience to the event. Note that if you plan to ride the TDF parade there are plenty of afternoon shifts when you can help and still pedal in the parade. You can sign up for shifts at Tour de Fat here:

Volunteers receive two beverage tokens and a Tour de Fat T-shirt!!

Please try to bring a friend, Mom and Dad, or even Gramma and Grandpa – we’d love to have them help! Help the Co-op make Tour de Fat successful.
