CTN needs MORE volunteers

Send me your qualifications and contact info right away if you want to volunteer! Especially if you have already emailed Tara. here's what Tara says:

Just let them all know that they need to be available ALL 3 days of the event (November 18 - 20th) to be cast for 10-12hrs over 2-3 shifts and are responsible for their own lodging.  The Marriott is filling up quickly so if they plan to stay at the hotel they should make a room reservation quickly.   When not assisting they can enjoy the show :)

Also: any students that have experience with merchandise / credit card transactions would be a plus.
