Help Needed – KISS/Def Leppard

We need 3 additional volunteers to work the Pavilion on Sunday, August 31, 2014.

Kiss/Def Leppard is the concert event. It shows to be sold out. We expect to be quite busy, so it is important that all of our volunteer spots be filled.

I need 1 cashier and 2 runners.

All 3 of these positions require TABC certification. If you need to complete your TABC certification, you can do a basic Google search with TABC online and you will see several options.

If you have a question about whether or not the course is TABC-approved, visit this link: http://bit.ly/1mwQ1QS. The link opens the TABC Approved Seller Training list.

This afternoon the search I did brought back results with costs ranging from $10.99 – $14.99. As long as the school is on the TABC Approved Seller Training list, you can take it from any site you choose.

If you have any questions, please let me know.

Thank you,

Sandra Ray

As of today I have 50 people signed up to help – I need at least 21 more volunteers for this to be successful.

Follow the link to see if you are signed up, if not please take the time to add your name.

ORHS Band Flag Sign Up Sheet

The more people we have sign up (and show up) to help – the fewer flags each volunteer will have.

Flag drop off will be 6pm to 8pm Tuesday, September 2nd.

Placing the flags instructions:

You will pick up a route(s) and the appropriate number of flags from storage. Once you arrive at your first address you will remove the flag from your vehicle, UNROLL it and place it in the sleeve at the flag tag on the curb.

  • Some new subscriptions may not have a sleeve and flag tag yet, these houses will require rebar be placed in the ground and the flag placed on the rebar.

o  If this is needed place the flag in line with the front door

DO NOT STICK THE FLAG IN THE GROUND WITHOUT EITHER A SLEEVE OR REBAR

Picking up flags instructions:

When picking the flags back up, redo the route that you did when placing flags.

  • Pick up the flag out of the yard (get any rebar used as well). Please watch to see if the sleeve comes out – please notate any maintenance issues with the tag or sleeve on your sheet of paper.
  • Place the flag – flag first – in your vehicle.

o  You may roll and rubber band the flag when it is picked up or wait until you are back at storage.

  • Once all flags are picked up return them to storage, assist with putting the flags away and return your route packet(s).

If your flags are not rolled and banded properly upon returning to storage, you will be asked to reroll them.

PLEASE RESPECT OUR NATIONS FLAG AND DO NOT ALLOW IT TO TOUCH OR DRAG THE GROUND.

 #3- GAME DAY CAR CARAVAN- Since Woodforest Stadium is less than 2 miles from campus, we do not take school buses to our home games. The District allows for us to drive personal vehicles in caravan. We caravan over to the stadium in a very orderly and pre planned way. It is you/your parents responsible to provide a ride or plan who you are going to ride with.

Here is the procedure: When dismissed to load cars:

#1- load car and line up cars in a pre-determined order ( police escort, 18 wheeler, directors car, quartermasters and drumline followed by all the band/color guard and the second Staff car)

#2- When the DIRECTOR car leaves the caravan is to follow the exact route to the Stadium. You will drop off and/or park in the designated section at the North end of the stadium.

#3 At the conclusion of the game, students will have 45 minutes to return to ORHS and turn in their uniform. Failure to comply with the caravan policy will result in you losing your privilege to attend future games.
