“We do this event every year and it’s so much fun. It’s a great opportunity to try new things. You don’t have to participate in every event, and there’s no experience required. Just come out, make friends and be active,” Boysha said.
Volunteer scorekeepers are needed for each day of the competition. No experience is necessary.
