Game Booths

Set-Up - We are asking that booths are set up right after school this year (3:00). The game booth coordinators will be in charge of this.

Shifts - We are hoping to get enough high school volunteers to man the booths again this year (please help recruit those teens!) in which case parents will not need to work shifts. We do still need a coordinator to meet the volunteers at the booth at 5:30pm to explain what to do. We also need some booth coordinators who are committed to check on their booth throughout the night to make sure their volunteer has everything they need and doesn't have questions.

****In the event we don't get enough teen volunteers, we will do a call for parent shift workers.  Keep your fingers crossed!

Clean up - Booth volunteers will be responsible for packing up their booths at the end of the evening.
