Olympic Patrolling Opportunity
Recruitment for the patrol team for the 2022 Winter Olympics in China is beginning. Here is a message from Ed Gassman, member and advisor for APP:
I’ve been asked to help select patrollers for the China 2022 Winter Olympics. Pay is $350 USD per day. Commitment is from January 15th – March 14th, equaling about $21,000 in pay. I am also looking for 4 additional patrollers to help with the leadership of this team with a commitment from November 15th – March 14th. Free meals, lodging, transportation and round-trip airfare is provided! A COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory yet, but is expected to be required. Those with previous race experience, ropes and repel capabilities, and strong medical credentials are requested.
Anyone interested should email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with a copy of your passport, years of patrolling, any race experience, and your medical certification level. Text 970-227-5451 with any questions, please no phone calls. We will know whether the Olympics will be held, and if so, who is accepted on the patrol team by mid-summer. Forming a team acceptable to FIS and BOCG are critical factors in the decision.
Thank you again for your perseverance in a challenging season. Stay tuned for updates about next season throughout the summer.
Your Board of Directors
