Thank you for expressing an interest to volunteer for the FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Robotics Competition in West Michigan. Without volunteers like yourself, the event would not be possible and we certainly appreciate your support of FIRST. The 2008 West Michigan competition is scheduled for 3/18/2010 - 3/20/2010 at the Grand Valley State University fieldhouse in Allendale.
There are many areas in which to help and I would like to place you in an area which best suits your talents and interests. Would you prefer something close to the action (and noise) on the playing field, or would helping with the pits be more to your liking?
I will certainly try to match you to your chosen postion(s) when the assignments are made. Additionally, if you know of friends or colleagues also interested in volunteering this year, please have them send me an e-mail so I can follow them through the system and be of assistance if needed.
As the event gets closer and screening is complete, an assignment and confirmation e-mail will be sent to you for review and acceptance. If you have any questions or need any assistance signing up, please feel free to contact me via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org , or call at (616) 292-2178.
Thank you! for the generous gift of sharing your time and talents with our students,
Volunteer Coordinator, FIRST Robotics West Michigan District Planning Committee
