If you have NOT gotten a confirmation, we do not have your permission slip and you MUST bring it with you to EXPO or you will not be allowed to volunteer.

ALSO: ALL SPLUNK EXPO VOLUNTEERS are asked to NOT park in the Sports Basement parking lot. There is limited parking available and they need it for their customers and the runners picking up bibs. INSTEAD, please park along Kern Avenue or at the parking lot across the street facing Lawrence Expressway, which is where Grainger used to be located. View the EXPO parking map
