CARE-ing Bear Volunteers

Update: on Saturday 8 am my vehicle is NOT HOOKED UP TO MY EXPEDETION, Dave had a hard time getting out of work and on the road to the meet. Please be prepared that this will need to be done in the morning. Also, after arrival and unload, Kelly and Tony are coming back up to get the awards station, some mats and other items and they will return with these items to unload please. brought a trailer for the 2nd load. So plan on loading the 2nd trailer and heading down please. I am hoping that the expedition will be back by 1 pm for Shannon to load supplies in: tumbling meet drawer, recital bags and such from the office. These items could go down with the 2nd trailer. Anything like this should go under the table where I usually sit, which is across from the awards station, in the corner slightly. They are also taking awards down to go on the table next to the awards station: Kayla and Laura will be down later to assemble/put in order. Assignments/Volunteer details are below after diagram – there are some time adjustments and added details.

JANUARY 29TH AT THE GRAND RIVER CENTER. We need volunteers from ALL TEAMS. Ideally, dance parents helping at the tumbling meet and gymnastics parents helping at dance recitals, is the most beneficial practice to have for all teams. If you are unable to volunteer than please commit now to volunteering at the May dance recital on the 20th at Five Flags or pay the $100 option out fee please. This is actually part of your team agreement, however, I have never had to mention much about it before. Meets and recitals directly affect the expense and assistance for our teams. It has come to the point where we will need to mention the necessity of committing and volunteering at events. Any assistance you can give, is vital. More specific times will be posted after 12/20 as that is when I should have schedules from other events and coordinators. rsvp 563-513-9306 with your desired tasks 😉
