We are in search of 2 volunteers to help with course monitoring at our league meet on October 21. Your commitment would be for approximately 2 hours, 9:15-noon. You will need a Discover Pass, as the meet is at the State Park. Please let us know if you are available to help. Thank you!
We could still use about 10 more volunteers for our first home meet this Tuesday, Sept 12th. Please contact Tracy or complete the online volunteer sign up link. The first race goes off at 4:15. If volunteers could arrive by 3:45 for instruction, that would be great!
