If you received a pre-registration packet, please note the information in the accompanying cover letter regarding volunteering and check the relevant boxes on the pre-registration form.  All those who wish to volunteer please do so either via our website at or via an email to our new Volunteer Coordinator, George Michael, at or telephone 301-331-6939 or leave a telephone message for Market Fair Committee Secretary Jenifer Scarisbrick at 301-824-6512. Responses will then be directed to the Chairpersons of the duties that you volunteer for.  The categories include: event setup/tear down, road watch, registration, the auction, the headquarters tent, shuttle driver – or combinations thereof.

Individuals who volunteer to help with event setup and/or tear down may set up their camp as early as Monday, April 23rd, but no earlier.  No early arrivals are allowed unless you are volunteering and have received confirmation of that. The work parties will begin on Tuesday at 9 AM, when we will meet at the dining fly by Capt. Wort's store.  A member of the Market Fair Committee will be there to go over assignments.

We will have a mandatory volunteer meeting on Tuesday, April 24th, at 4:30 PM under the large dining fly beside Capt. Wort's store. We will be talking about what's new, reviewing procedures, the weather, contact information and the usual Market Fair issues and answering questions. After the meeting, Market Fair Committee members will be there to get you registered. Dinner for volunteers will be provided after the meeting and registration.

If you have not already done so, please respond to the email address or phone number given above by April 1st with your duty preference: event set up/tear down, road watch, auction, registration, HQ tent or any combination thereof. Thank you in advance for volunteering! We can’t do it without you and we greatly appreciate it!

Please forward this to any folks that will be camping with you, so that this message does not miss anyone.
