Each team should bring a 15ft (or longer) extention cord--power will be within 15 ft of each pit table for charging.
VOLUNTEERS NEEDED--ideally, each registered team brings along at least one adult to help run the event--email [email protected] if you are interested!

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

Refund and Payment Policies
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.
