Run briefing with Event Director Brett

However, the most exciting part this week was the number of new volunteers we got! Huge thanks to Shaun Baker, Margaret Taylor, T Christensen, Ira Pearl, Steve Leahy, and Luke Leahy for stepping up. It's also to see the Clarence family and Helen Taylor coming out to volunteer yet again. Having so many willing hands meant some of our core team were finally able to run the event, including our superstar volunteer coordinator Zhanna who was able to run for the first time.
