YES!  We do need volunteers!  Volunteers are the heart of every VEX competition--without them the event simply cannot function.  In a perfect world, every robot team would provide at least 2 adult volunteers at every event.  There are lots of different roles that need to be filled, with varying degrees of expertise and physical activity.

PLEASE have one or two of your team parents email me at [email protected] with the subject "Volunteer for Pinecrest North VEX VRC Tournament" in the subject line.  I will get back to them ASAP, and thanks in advance!!
