Rattler Families:

We are in need of your help...

We will need volunteers to run the clocks, move the bumpers, bring and sell concession items, and sell raffle tickets.  Below are links to the on-line sign up lists for all of these jobs.  We ask that you please volunteer in some way to help make this a great experience for our sport's newest players, and support the entire Rattlers organization.

We are also accepting donations of raffle items for our baskets if you know of a local business that would be willing to provide something.

Please remember that it is events/fundraisers like this Jamboree and The Jimmy Welch Tournament that help to keep our registration fees low!
