Wednesday Evening is the Hall of Fame induction ceremony, this will be hosted by the CBF. Hospitality rooms will be opened after the ceremony. This requires upgraded and expanded food service.
Note the committee in attendance was asked if there should be another day of entertainment and it was unanimous that there should not be as what we had was already much more than anyone who had attended these events in other cities experienced. Our resources of volunteers are already taxed.
Marielle will contact Ina Demme re the number of caddies required each day.
Goodie Bags were thought not to be needed. Any items we collect could be left on the information table to be picked up by the players.
John has produced sign up sheets for volunteers to slot the time they are available to assist in the numerous positions required. These will be posted at the Facility.
A mass email with information will be prepared and will be sent to all Unit 181 Members.
We require a link on website for Regional, CBF, and CNTC Competitions. .
