At least 1 more volunteer needed.

This cheer-spreading volunteer will pick up pre-made posters from the VBC on race morning, take them out to the "Spirt Wall" (across from 2400 Andrew Jackson Way NE, Huntsville, AL 35811), and tape them all along the wall (with special tape that "should" stick to the concrete wall). For extra credit, you'll also take down all the signs after the participants pass! (Signs need to be posted by 7:15...the last runner will go by about 7:50ish) For even MORE extra credit, you could then take the signs over to Lowe Mill and post them along the fence!! :D
