Arrrr....Volunteers are Still Needed!
Seadogs and landlubbers alike are needed to volunteer as activity assistants, parking greeters, registration takers, treasure guardians, and more! We'll provide lunch (to avoid scurvy), T-shirts, and training. Last year over 400 people attended this great event - we need your help to make this year another huge success. So come volunteer… or walk the plank! Arrr!
