Volunteers are still needed for the Gentlemen of the Road Salida Stopover. The Work Exchange Team is looking for music fans that want to trade a little work for an awesome music experience. Work an approximate six hour shift and have access to the staff ticket price to spend the weekend with great musical performances. As all hours worked are paid hourly wage, Fan Staff are able to enjoy the event with little to no out-of-pocket expense. Limited amount of space is available, apply to volunteer by going to www.workexchangeteam.com and register for the Salida Stopover.
There is a business window decorating contest going on with an opportunity to win fun prizes. The contest is called THE EXTREME MUMFORD MAKEOVER CONTEST. To participate in the contest, you need to follow these simple instructions: GO CRAZY! (Don’t block your entire window—fire safety reasons). Decorate your windows/façade/store/restaurant with paint, decals, banners, GOTR, Mumford & Sons, anything and everything British, ‘Welcome to Salida’, Mumford & Son’s lyrics/song titles, other Stopover band greetings and/or images. Mumford & Sons (yes, you heard it right) will choose the best decorated Salida business. The 1st place winner will receive two backstage lounge passes to hang out where the musicians hang out. The 2nd place winner will receive autographed Mumford & Sons memorabilia. The 3rd place winner will receive GOTR memorabilia. To enter the contest, you must post a picture of your storefront on your Facebook page tagging City of Salida, Colorado in the caption by 5:00 p.m. local time on Monday, August 17th.
