  • Volunteers make 10% for earning while working.
  • Don't know at this point how many tents will be set up for volunteers.

I need to know how many people would like to volunteer. This will work just like we did with the picnic, all proceeds will go toward the shop. Please put your name down so I can let them know how many volunteers we can get to work. I will update when I get more information. --Jimshoe 12:14, 15 July 2009 (CDT)
