     Crown Tournament 
From His Excellency, Logan goðiCrown Tournament is only two short weeks away. If you can help out on any of the days, but you don't know what there is to do, please let any of the event stewards know, and we will find something for you to to. Some examples of some areas that could use help:
  • Gate - Always a good place to volunteer and meet people.
  • Sanitation - Making sure the porta-potties are properly supplied.
  • Water Bearing - Since this is an outdoor event, keeping our friends hydrated will be important.
  • Set Up & Tear Down - If you can help on the first or last day of the event, there is a special place for you in Valhalla.
There will be an announcement later in the week about scheduled access to the storage unit for anyone who needs to get things out of there for the event.

Thank you all for your support and volunteerism.
