There have been several questions on the board post-fest about the St. Bernards and their role at Wakarusa. Somebody didn't read their booklet at the festival!!! Well, as always, we're here to help!
Here' the text that was printed in this year's booklet:If you have questions, the St. Bernards have answers (or know where to find them). I like to think of us as some of the "Good Vibe Ambassadors" of the festival. Our team is experienced, knowledgeable, coherent, and ALWAYS kind. We don't do security or confrontations. We don't perform medical duties, but we do help people get the medical attention they need.Originally Posted by Waka Handbook
We're always looking to increase our visibility and let people know we're there to help. To be a St. Bernard, you need to KNOW a St. Bernard. Due to our assigned duties at the festival, it doesn't really work for us to take "cold volunteers" that we don't know. We've tried that in the past and found mixed results at best.
Thanks for asking!
