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 the Signup Genius to voluntear .
