Hello all. I hope the summer is treating you well. I’ll try to keep this as short as I can as there is a lot of information.
We’ve been given an amazing fundraising opportunity to work the AAU National meet held here at Drake stadium starting next Saturday, July 26th and runs through the following Saturday, August 2nd.
I NEED YOUR HELP!!!
Each full day you work the people at AAU will provide you with lunch
Each full day you work (2 sessions) I will provide you with a Little Caesar’s gift certificate for a free large pizza.
Here’s the deal:
Each day is broken up into 2 sessions except the final day which is just one
We’d work all of the field events. High jump, long jump, shot put, discuss, javelin, pole vault, triple jump,
All you do is sit at a table with a laptop in hand and enter the distance of what they tell us the athlete did on each attempt. REALLY, IT’S THAT EASY
Thursday, July 24th at 5:45 pm we are having a meeting at DRAKE STADIUM in the blue seats in front of the press box. Here you will be able to ask questions, learn more about the entering process for the event you work and meet the person you’ll have questions for. You’ll also get to see the event area and where you’ll be working to better familiarize yourself with that environment.
You will need to be there an hour before your event.
If you work the whole day, you’ll stay with the same event in the afternoon after your lunch.
On the days you don’t work, you are allowed free entry to the meet with your t-shirt or wristband that is supplied for you.
THE MEET STARTS THIS SATURDAY. PLEASE RESPOND TO THIS EMAIL IMMEDIATELY IF YOU PLAN TO WORK OR NOT SO I KNOW HOW MANY T-SHIRTS TO ORDER AND HOW MANY PEOPLE WE NEED EACH DAY.
WE REALLY REALLY REALLY need to get those first few days covered first and we’ll work from there.
Thank you, and remember to get back to me as soon as possible.
