Chowing with the Hounds Picnic - Saturday September 17, 2005

Chowing With The Hounds | Jun 13, 2005 12:30 PM

Volunteers Needed! Volunteers Needed! Volunteers Needed!

After last October's picnic, a reservation was made immediately for Saturday, September 17, 2005 so we could get a prime picnic site.

Last year's coordinator will hand over the Picnic Planning Binder (project plan, forms, recaps about what works/doesn't) so the 2005 Committee won't be starting from scratch. But as of today, only a couple of people from the past who has stepped forward and said they help again this year.

So the question is, who's going to organize/plan/put it on? If you can volunteer, please email, and let us know how you help out. It can be as elaborate or simple as the picnic planners decide.

Most Needed:
Project Planner/Coordinator - makes sure stuff gets done
Communications – is the information point person(s)
Finance - is the keeper of the funds/budget
Supplies - makes sure we have whatever is needed for the picnic (ice, water, trashbags)

More Optional:
Tastings – puts together a tasting of some sort with some sort of lecture or educational handout
Cooking Demonstration – puts together a cooking demonstration
Music and Entertainment – make the picnic more fun, loosen people up, trivia contest, games.
Graphic Design – creates fun/thematic picnic logo for communications & cafepresse items.
Food Contest – creates ballots & winner certificates, runs the contest the day of the picnic. (Last year, feedback suggested we dump the contest).
