Our show volunteers always have a great time! We strive for a fun, casual environment at our shows where both volunteers and competitors can learn and work together. Our show Manager, Michele Wellman, has years of experience running and planning shows and is happy to guide or teach new volunteers. These shows are a great environment to try out a new volunteer position or watch and see how things work.
