We are looking for help during the Jr. and Sr. Summer Nationals July 1st to 3rd. This is a major tournament and is being held at UCI, Irvine. Nanka needs help and El Toro has agreed to share Matside Table duties with Konjo Dojo. So we need 3 to 4 helpers to work the tables, three at a time over the two days of competition.
