E. CONCESSIONS:
Each family has 2 options:
1. Pay $45 at registration or by May 31st. This fee will cover the food the concession committee will be making for the concessions for the 4 home meets
2. Instead of paying $45, you will be responsible for bringing items to the concession stand each meet. The concession committee will send a sign up genius to those who do not wish to pay the $45.
3. Bringing food or paying the One and Done does not fulfill the volunteer commitment. All parents will need to volunteer at the meets. If not, the meet does not run smoothly.
4. Looking for volunteers for the concession committee. Need parents to help bake or work the concessions stand. Please email Lisa Evans: limiley@gmail.com if interested.

F. MEET ENTRIES:
1. Sarah Schoppe-Sullivan will be sending a google entry request one week before each meet. It needs to be sent back in by the Friday before the Meet, Monday before a Sat meet. It will let us know who will be at the meet and what their event choices are.

G. VOLUNTEERING:
In order for the meets to run smoothly, parents are required to volunteer at the meets. A sign up genius
will be sent out weekly for timing, bull pen, ribbons, runners, and set up/tear down responsibilities.
Each home meet will need 32 timers (16 first half, 16 second half of meet) 4 officials, 2-3 people to set
up, 2-3 people to tear down, 2-3 people ribbons/computer table, 2 runners.

H. SPIRIT WEAR:
