All members were emailed on 9 May asking for dates on which they will be able to volunteer to help the club. Thank you to everyone who has replied so far, but please can the remaining few identify the competitions that they will be able to volunteer for – all members are required to provide help for one full day or two half days (which can be organised around competing by judging another level’s PTV). If you can’t personally help then bringing a willing volunteer also counts! You can see the dates available below.
We provide refreshments for all judges, and anyone making a special journey just to judge will be given some cash towards their mileage. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with details.
