AAHPERD event - Sept 28, 1-3 - CPS !CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS

Post by jZip » Mon Sep 16, 2013 3:37 pm

Good afternoon DisCappers.

AAHPERD, Capital Zone has once again asked DisCap to host a Disc Golf event.

For those that don't recall, AAHPERD is the American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, and Dance. Their local chapter, the Capital Zone, approached us last spring and asked us to host their annual Get Moving event. It seems to be an ideal pairing of organizations and missions. They look to promote healthy activity, and we look to introduce people to the sport.

We will be doing essentially the same thing we did last time, but this time at only CPS; an introduction, some initial instruction, a handful of holes accompanied by one of our volunteers who will provide guidance and assistance, and a ring of fire to wrap it up.

I am looking for about a half dozen volunteers to help out. Please come share your love for the game.

We'll need one guide for each group we send out, and at least one person to stay behind and greet late comers and man the DisCap booth (BTW, the DisCap store will be there if you're in need of any new plastic). It is only a couple of hours commitment and we can then go play the course afterwards. I would like if one person could meet me there at noon to help me set up the pop-up and store.

Please post here if you are willing to help out.
Thanks.

I think I have that Saturday off. I'll let you know for sure after checking the schedule, but count me in tentatively.

Hey all, still looking for volunteers. It's just a 2 hour commitment and you can then go chuck discs to your heart's desire afterwards. Growing the sport is our club's primary mission and exposing new players only benefits us all. Please consider taking 2 hours out of your Saturday and join us at Central Park. These outreach events are a fun, fulfilling experience.

Please let me know if you will be joining us or have any questions.
Thanks in advance,
Jeff

Thank you Gene. Look forward to seeing you, and anyone else who may join you.

Still could use some more volunteers. Who else can spare a couple of hours to promote the sport they love?

Would still love to see a few more volunteers step up. Events like this help promote disc golf, introducing the sport to more players. This in turn gives us a larger local player base, more recognition as they spread the word, more acceptance and funding as we look to install new courses.

This is a simple way to help grow the sport you love.

Please let me know here or via phone/txt if you can join us. It is just a 2 hour commitment and will be a fun time.

Then go play a round.
