Donating your time and effort to this event is a rewarding experience. We welcome individuals and clubs or organizations volunteering together. Between the time the first of 1,500 contestants arrives on July 14 until the last horse leaves July 23, approximately 800 volunteers will be needed. No special skills are required, just a desire to present Gillette to the rest of the nation as the outstanding community that we know it to be. If you are willing to help with any aspect of the NHSFR, please contact our volunteer coordinator, ReNae Keuck at: email@example.com or by phone 307.682.0552. Your time and energy will be greatly appreciated as you join CAM-PLEX, Gillette, and the National High School Rodeo Association in making the 2011 rodeo the best yet!
