Boats ready to go, parking lanes are marked with numbers. Once the soldiers are paired with the boater they drive down to the launch area. From there a group of volunteers do “Valet Parking”. The boater is given a numbered tag. One set of numbers is left on the dash, and the other part of the tag has the vehicle description, location where parked on it. From there the keys are placed on a board. When the boater returns the number is called out and the valet goes with the keys, retrieves the tow vehicle and the boat and picks up the boater.
