Birkie ’19: “Year of the Volunteer”

Each Birkie seems to take on a life of its own – the Blizzard Birkie, and Half Birkie, The Non-Birkie, etc. Getting ahead of the game this year, organizers have set out to preordain the 2019 event and “the Year of the Volunteer.”.And rightly so; there are 2500 of them, in fact! These are the tireless foot soldiers which make the Birkie possible. Envelope stuffers, parking marshalls, medics, food station workers, and on and on.

In the spirit of the Year of the Volunteer, New Moon sought to add a little, special thank you to the effort. This year, each and every Birkie volunteer  will receive a gift card from New Moon. “Volunteerism is really the true legacy of the Hayward/Cable Area events – Birkie, Chequamegon Fat Tire, Lumberjack World Champs… it defines what makes our communities so special.” says New Moon co-owner, Chris Young… “We always have wanted to do something special for the (Birkie) volunteers and this just felt right.”

last week, New Moon owners, staff, and friends gathered at a favorite local Birkie hangout, Coops Pizza, and prepared 2500 gift cards for each and every Birkie volunteer. “It’s just a small thank you, and we’re lucky to have the opportunity to do this.” Chris reiterates: “We hope to do something like this again!”

While out skiing or spectating at this year’s Birkie events, look around at all of the special folks that make this the greatest show on snow—give them a tip of the hat and pass along a quick “Thanks!”
