District 21 needs you!
Our District is evolving, and we need your help! Please consider one of the following opportunities to contribute to the District and the game we all love.
Grant Robinson, who has served as the District’s webmaster for many years, is leaving the district. We are looking for someone to maintain and update the District’s website. It’s not too many hours and it is paid position!
If you are technically minded and want to help update our easy WordPress site, let us know. This would also be great work experience for a recent or soon-to-be grad. If you’re interested, please email email@example.com.
Tournament Task Force
We all know tournaments are changing in the post-covid world. Our president, Sigrid Price, is putting together a special Task Force to consider the future of regionals in D21 and how they should be run. If you would like to volunteer to serve on the Task Force, please contact Sigrid. It’s a true chance to help shape the future of tournaments in D21.
Tournament Planning Chair
Speaking of tournaments, Nancy Boyd, who has served as Tournament Planning Chair, is retiring. If you are organized and love people and regionals, please consider volunteering to head our Tournament Planning Committee. This important committee makes the District’s regionals happen.
