The Volunteer page doesn’t work :frowning_face:

Hi Wayne,

Hmm… that’s strange. The link seems okay from my end but please try this link instead: 2021 Goonettes Invitational Volunteer Sign-Up

Let me know if it does not work for you.

Thanks!

Just in case anyone forgot how awesome the inaugural Goonettes Invitational in 2019 was - here are some reminders!

Vouch! This event was a ton of fun and a great learning experience for our students. We have nothing but praise for this event. We won’t be there this year unfortunately, but any team that attends is sure to have a good time.

Hi Everyone!

I wanted to provide an update on the Goonettes Invitational event:

Due to circumstances that are largely beyond our control (the latest surge of the COVID-19 Delta variant, the challenges many teams are facing with student retention/availability and school district regulations, etc.), we will NOT be able host the Goonettes Invitational, as hoped, in 2021.

While there was certainly a lot of excitement surrounding the event (which we are very happy to hear about and share with you), we want to ensure that the Goonettes Invitational provides the top notch experience and unique learning opportunities in a safe environment that generated that excitement in the first place! With that in mind, we still plan on hosting the Goonettes Invitational again, hopefully in 2022!

We will certainly post future updates/announcements and sincerely hope that you will all still be just as interested in competing/volunteering to help make the next Goonettes Invitational another one to remember!

Thank you,
Brandon Queen
