Task: Ensure the safe keeping and correct match of gear check bag & participant bib.

Drop Off: The Van will be sectioned into areas numbered by increments of 100 and labeled on the van walls. We won't have a hanger system in place; so participant bags should be stacked in the corresponding areas.

You'll need to ensure that each participant's bag is tagged with the bottom tear strip from the race bib - adhered using a safety pin. Be cautious of fragile contents in bags.

Pickup: When participants approach to pickup their gear bags; ensure that you have an exact match between the participant's bib number and the original tear strip from their bib, which serves as the bag tag.

Problems: If you have any challenges or missing bags - send the participant to the Registration Coordinator in the Registration Tent.
