Please consider the Volunteering Opportunities Below:
Kincaid Mud run on Monday, the 15th, annual tradition
volunteers who have offered to bring cookies and/or chocolate milk can arrive at the Kincaid Chalet at 6:30pm and set up at the picnic tables outside of the Chalet.
volunteers that want to take pictures of the muddy student athletes will have to walk down the coastal trail (to the mud) and arrive at 5:30pm
Soldotna Overnight Trip on Friday, the 19th, annual tradition. The team busses down to Skyview Middle/High School, spends the night in the school, and races the Tsalteshi Invite Saturday morning.
could still use volunteers to help with dinner around 8pm on Friday evening (we usually order pizza unless someone wants to grill for about 50 people)
volunteers to help and supply breakfast will need to arrive at Soldotna High School by 8:30am(muffins and bananas, breakfast bars, we're flexible!)
Tent to/from Meet We are still looking for a volunteer (or volunteers) to bring/take the team tent to future meets. You need a large vehicle. Student athletes will muscle it out of and into your vehicle and transport it with the dolly to the team site at the meet you've offered to help out with.
Spaghetti Feeds. For the 1st time ever, we still have availability to host a spaghetti feed. A shopper, (thanks Mr. Kirkland) will deliver you the food and we'll deliver you the student-athletes. They are a respectful bunch and we haven't had any problems in the past.
Let us know how you are willing to help out. We are still looking for a parent to shadow Gess Lim, who manages the booster club finances, and Laarni Power, who manages the team's FaceBook page. Many hands make light work. Go to the 'Parents' tab on the ServiceCCRunning.com website and sign up for what you're willing to do. Thanks much!
