Returning Gate Staff and Volunteers

Saddle up---it’s Western Heritage Classic time again and we are working to keep the west alive!!!

We are requesting your help in opening gates and coordinating shift changes on Friday and Saturday, May 7-8.We will have two (2) shifts per day for Staff workers and three (3) shifts per day for Gate workers. We are opening gates A, H and 3 for ticket sales and ticket takers.

If you are willing to volunteer your time to this exciting event, click here to select your desired time slot and date to volunteer. All those intending to volunteer must complete their request by April 19. We will make every attempt to place you as you request. If you have any questions or need assistance with sign up, the Expo Center Office will be able to assist you at 677-4376.

Because you are “old hands” at this volunteering work, we WILL NOT HAVE an instructional meeting. We will be in contact with you before your day of volunteering.
