Volunteer

These events are all volunteer run, please aim to lend one volunteer for each team you are registering.  Lots of opportunities big and small. Check out the RECF Volunteer Roles Overview for details. 

The hardest role to fill is typically Judge.  Be assured that technical backgrounds are useful but not required. Being a Judge is a great way to meet some of the students and understand the hard work they put in to produce their robots.

Please use  this sign up to volunteer.

Parking at McCallum is broken into several small lots.  The image below shows the best options for parking as well as the event entrance location.  Although there are a handful of spots on the drop-off loop, parking on the west side of Sunshine (A) is your next best option.  The lot accross the street (B) belongs to McCallum, and the faculty lot (C) to the north is also a good option.

The entrance is accessible, and the venue is the cafeteria (V).
