There are not any restaurants within walking distance to the venue, therefore, hot dogs will be sold at the venue for lunch. Hot dogs will be sold for $2.50 each, and cans of pop for $1.00 each. Buy two hot dogs, get one drink free.
We are always looking for dedicated people to donate their time and efforts to these competitions. We need scramblers and judges for every round of every event. It is a great opportunity for parents, siblings, friends, or anyone that wants to come and be involved but does not want to compete yet. We will provide training the morning of the competition for those wishing to help out. It is not difficult, so don't be afraid!
For anyone that volunteers and helps out for an entire competition, we will act as a reference if you wish to put this on your resume or college application. We will also sign any high school volunteer hour sheets provided you work the entire competition. But you must arrange this with us before the competition. Please fill in the form here if you plan to help out.
