Below is the Sign Up for Battle on Bago which is our biggest fundraiser of the year. We are asking everyone to try to sign up for a slot as "many hands make light work." Friends and family are more than welcome to help out as are students! 

This event takes place February 21-22 at Menominee Park (ON THE PARKING LOT, not on the ice:)) The Tent we work in is HEATED!! It is not as cozy as your home, but it is pretty comfy working.

We are not only asked to work the event itself, but we are asked to help out in setting up (Thursday 2/20) and tearing down (late Saturday 2/22 as well as Sunday 2/23 morning). There are plenty of opportunities to help out!

The kitchen is staffed 100% by our booster club on Friday night. We were a little short last year, but we made it work. I'm hoping we have a few more people signing up this year, so we can give some breaks. We share kitchen duties on Saturday with another organization, so you will see less slots for the kitchen on Saturday.

If anyone has any questions of what the work entails, just ask and I will be glad to explain. If there is a time that works better for you and you want to help out,  let me know and I will find a job for you:)  If you will be late for a shift or you need to leave early, please note in the sign up. 

It is a lot of fun, so don't hesitate to sign up!!
