Volunteer

WE LOVE VOLUNTEERS!  

Volunteers are managed in shifts--either 7:30am-1pm or 12pm-5:30pm (or both, if you like).  Volunteers will be provided lunch (pizza).  Volunteers will be trained at the event (no previous experience or expertise required!!)  Some jobs are for adults only, but MANY can be done by kids as young as 10.  

VOLUNTEERING IS A GREAT WAY TO GET SERVICE HOURS (for Bright Futures, Scholarship applications, etc  or simply to do a nice thing for others).  Volunteering at a VRC event is fun!

For now, simply email your name, age, preferred shift and cellphone number to rdubard@ransomeverglades.  Please put "Volunteer Oct 15" in the subject line!!

Emergency/Bad Weather Policy

In the event of an emergency cancellation or other change in plans, teams will be notified via the team contact information available through RobotEvents.com.  Be certain this contact emails and phone numbers for your teams are correct to insure up-to-date information.

If you have questions or concerns, EMAIL rdubard@ransomeverglades.org or TEXT (DO NOT CALL!!) 305-773-0117 (Due to spam and fraud, I do not answer calls from numbers not in my contacts, sorry)

Refund Policy

Refunds will ONLY be issued if the event is cancelled.  Refunds will always be $5 less than the registration fee, due to the non-refundable fees required by RECF.

IF you register a team, and later find they cannot attend, PLEASE contact rdubard@ransomeverglades.org as there may be waitlisted teams that will buy your spot from you,
