The Corvette plant is seeking 32 Plant volunteers for Thursday and Friday, Sept. 3 and Sept. 4, 2009.

There will be 2 shifts, for both days, that the volunteers can work- either 8am -12PM or 11am - 3pm. The volunteers will need to be at the tour room by 7:45am or 10:45am so that they can get their tour stop assignments & be shown their locations out on the tour route.

For planning purposes, please be aware that lunch will not be provided due to the economic state of our company. So, plan on bringing snacks. They hope that everyone will understand this matter.

Volunteering at the plant is a lot of fun, something that we have done for the past 10 years. So if you are attending the 15th Anniversary-Caravan event and would like to work next to the world's most beautiful cars please email me name, day and what shift you would like. I will need your names before July 20th. [email protected] Thanks!

Note: The Bowling Green Assembly Plant, will start working an Alternative Work Schedule effective July 20, 2009. This means that the plant will be working four 10 hour days Monday - Thursday & will be off on Fridays. As a result, the plant will not be running production on Friday, Sept 4, 2009. However, the plant will still be open for Self Guided Walk Through Tours on Friday.

Volunteers will be placed at various areas in the plant and your job would be to keep people from wandering into places that they are not suppose to be. The fun part is being able to talk to the people who take the tour as well as the employees, and see the Corvettes coming off the line. Usually the plant will give out a "cheat sheet" that will supply information in case you are asked a question. I volunteered at the birthday bash and got to see all the Grandsports and GT1's coming off the line.

It sounds like a fun time just being in that atmosphere. :partyon: :partyon:

I'd love to do it just to say that I have but since I am a cripple for the summer...thats out.

Good luck finding people but I don't think that will be a problem. :cheers:

So basically we'd be "bouncers" for the plant, lol. I'd be down for that. I'm a 6 hour drive away, can I be reimbursed for gas or anything?

I volunteered as a plant guide on Thursday afternoon.
From the last I heard lunch and refreshments will be available for the volunteers.

It's not about the lunch or what's free...it's about the people, and what better way to meet Corvette folks than at the World's only assembly plant.
