August 20th OPEN PRACTICE
As most of you know, we are planning an Open Practice for Saturday August 20th, practice from 9:00 to 10:30 and brunch from 10:30-12:00. We will be inviting anyone who participated in the dragon boat leagues this summer, anyone who has had anything to do with dragon boating, anyone who has signed up for the Lottie and anyone who contributed to the Berlin effort. (Kate is in the process of developing a mailing list) We have received a few inquiries as a result of the resent publicity and would, as usual, welcome any other suggestions. Kate is going to be designing an e-mail invitation, which will go out to all the above. We will also send it to the team to be forwarded to your friends and family (I know everyone is tapped out, but just in case...)
We are going to try and keep this as simple as possible, so as not to involve too many volunteer hours--but we do need assistance. We will need several people to skip practice and pick up food, get the boathouse set up etc. We will need clean-up volunteers and we will need people to either solicite donations for food, drinks and paper products or donate the items themselves. The menu is roughly as follows (to be modified depending on what we can get)
Bloody Mary Mix
Coffee --cream, sugar etc.
Bagels and Bagel accessories --cream cheese, lox, tomatoes etc.---Dick will get the lox
Scrambled Eggs and Hash Browns --courtesy of Jack via Pamela's
2 fruit and cheese trays--courtesy of Judy via Whole Foods
1 tray of food to be named--courtesy of Judy via Whole Foods
Krispy Creams--???-courtesy of Jack via the bread delivery man at Pamela's
I will try and get Panera's to donate the leftover's from Friday night (I think they do that)
Napkins, paper plates plastic silverware etc.
Quantities will have to be determined when we get an idea of attendance--we plan on sending out the invitations August 5th and asking for RSVP's by August 15th.
SO....if everyone can choose one or two things to do or bring we should be in good shape. E-mail me AND post your contributions on the blog. THANKS.
