"Gendarmerie" needed

Is anyone looking to give back to the sport of sailing? A new division within US SAILING with the current working title of "Gendarmerie" is looking for volunteers.

The Gendarmerie will report directly to President Jim Capron and will consist of a nationwide group of enthusiastic volunteers. They will station themselves at beaches and hoists around the country on Saturday mornings and interview any sailors who appear qualified to steer the boat that they will be competing on. Proper US SAILING ID will be requested when conditions apply.

The future of sailing will depend on these volunteers to stamp out the practice of anyone who would like to try steering without previously making the financial investment. You MUST pay to play. Please consider giving back to the sport you love and donating some of your time to this wholesome activity. Uniforms will be provided.

Submitted by anonymous volunteer and member of US SAILING since 1988,who no way in hell is going to protest anyone or in any other way enforce any new mandatory membership rule.
