Please wear your facemask or PPE for the check-in and at the Trapper Springs Pavilion. This year, we are encouraging a WALK-ONLY event. We would like to minimize running any shuttles. After volunteers are done cleaning up their section, they should swing by the Trapper Springs Pavilion where we will have free to-go sack lunches and beverages.
