vol_TDsThe CRA boasts one of the most talented and experienced volunteer teams of Tournament Directors and support staff to assure success for sanctioned events. While the CRA Board tends to take on the lion’s share of setup and coordination at State events, they’re joined by plenty of generous donors of time and talent at tournament desks statewide.

And although he’s recently been called out of state (sadly relocated to Iowa!), former Volunteer Coordinator Dennis Chandler compiled the annotated list* shown below, from assignment lists over the past year (links call up USA Racquetball player profiles).
