  1. Front gate workers (two per shift)
  2. 2nd person to help with Trash cans & restroom each day
  3. Possibly one or two to help in office

  5. 3 or 4 concession stand workers--one to help get started at 6:00 am and three or four per shift (busiest hours seem to be 7:30-8:30; 11:30-1:30; 5:30-7:30) *Afternoon workers will be helping to get supper meal ready.

The remainding jobs are for one day and less than 4 hours so they do NOT include free entry, camping or banquet dinner.

1) Several people on cellphone call with cars to take those in campers and who have flown in to the banquet dinner.

2) Meet and greet newbies. 3 times a day 9:00 AM, 12:00 PM, and 4:00 PM. Make announcment on PRA for all newbies to come to the Cantina to be showed around.

3) Qulified Builders to be aircraft Judges for our contest. Judge all the rides in the contest from 8/1 - 8/4/2017 to be turned in by 5:00 PM 8/4/2017.

4) 3 people that we will train to help judge the flying contests on 8/3/2018 from 12:00 PM through 5:00 PM

Friday and Saturday, we will need extra bodies as they are usually really busy.  In the past, there has been at least two people on the grill and four people doing all the other jobs.  Since the banquet is Friday, we will still have to have volunteers help run the concession stand for those not going to the banquet.  That evening will be regular menu items since most of the people will be gone. 

I will have the concession stand open for popcorn and drinks during the fireworks. 

I will also need a few volunteers to help set up the banquet as soon as I get there after school or if a couple could get JR away in the early morning hours, the banquet could be set up Friday morning.
Concession stan workers schedule:
Breakfast--  Opens at 6:30 and goes till 10:30
1) Someone to run orders to the window and get drinks
2) Someone to help with the cooking

Lunch--  Starts serving at 11:00 and goes till about 4:00
1) Someone to run orders to the window and get drinks, may even need two for this position during busy times
2) Someone to run deep fryer, may need two for this position
3) Someone to help with condiments full and help everyone else

1) At least one person to help get evening meals going

Evening--  Starts serving at 5:00 or 5:30
1) At least two people to help serve evening meal & clean-up
2) It would be beneficial if at least one person could help get things ready to go for the next day after the concession stand is closed.  JR and Jane usually do it but we could use help, especially if the books don't balance.
