WE STILL NEED VOLUNTEERS! Okay, I hate to shout, but the Gull Lake Invitational is coming up on October 4th. In order to pull this off, we are in need of you if you have some time that day to volunteer. The first band will take the field at 10:00am. and if all goes as planned, we will be doing awards at 12:30 with the goal of being done in time for the first Saturday of the month emergency siren test at 1p.m. We have seven bands who will be competing and then our own Blue Devil Band will perform in exhibition. It is a busy day but many hands make light work. IF YOU HAVE A HIGH SCHOOL OR MIDDLE SCHOOL BAND STUDENT, PLEASE CONSIDER VOLUNTEERING. This is a very important fundraiser for Gull Lake Bands, and ALL of our students benefit from these funds.
Here are the jobs we need filled:
Warm up area timers – 2 people
Each band is given a certain amount of time to practice and you are the one to clock their time for them.
Gate Watchers – 2 people
You are positioned by the gates leading into the field to make sure no one is just walking in.
Band Guides – 4 people
You will be assigned to one of the schools and will stay with them until they get done with their performance. You help get them to their practice field and answer questions they may have while with us. You will escort them to the field carrying a sign that identifies which band they are.
Bleacher guard – 1 person
You will place a rope over the entrance to the stands once a band is ready to play so that people aren’t coming and going during a performance.
Parking Directors – 3 people
You will help direct buses to their destination, spectators to theirs and those who need handicapped parking to those spaces.
Please contact Jodi Reid via Facebook or email to volunteer. If you don’t have her contact info please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you so much for any help you can give. Please note that there will be a mandatory volunteer meeting on Thurs. Oct. 2 starting at 6:30 in the band room. If you aren’t able to make the meeting please let Jodi know.
