    Good morning,

    I was wondering if you still need volunteers for Saturday Aug 6th at Nahant, MA. I saw a posting on Facebook at the beginning of the week.

      Hi Jim,
      You can go ahead and fill out the East Coast volunteer registration form and that will go to Steve Carbonier. He has been taking care of the East Coast registration and he should get right back to you.
