Volunteer: Feed The MOX Setup Staff

Help Feed The Midwest Outdoor Experience Set Up Staff.

Volunteers from the Dayton Hikers group are needed to provide a picnic lunch for the MOX setup staff. The Dayton Hikers group will do a cookout style lunch and feed about 25 people at Eastwood MetroPark who are there setting up for MOX. Thursday is big set-up day. The Five Rivers MetroParks staff works very hard to make this event a success. Thursday is a long day for them. Let's show our support by providing them with a meal. Get a sneak peak of the 2013 MOX venue too. Check out the new whitewater drop on the Mad River. Lunch will be served from 11:00am to 11:45am.

The setup staff we are feeding is the same Five Rivers MetroPark staff who teaches you backpacking, kayaking, mountain biking, fly fishing, land navigation etc.

Volunteers are need for:

The grill. A cook is need to cook hamburgers, chicken breasts and hot dogs.

Lunch helpers. Help set up the tables with sides dishes, utensils, etc. Clean up too.

Volunteers are needed to provide sides dishes! Bring a side dish of your favorite picnic food. Please consider donating a side dish even though you can't attend the cookout. Andy will arrange to pick up your dish.

Can't provide a side dish but still want to help? Please consider making a monetary donation to help pay for the costs of this picnic!

Hot dogs, hamburgers, chicken breasts, buns and condiments will be provided by Outdoor Adventure Connection.

We are fortunate to live in Dayton as Dayton is the Outdoor Adventure Capital of the Midwest! The Midwest Outdoor Experience helps us make this claim. You can help too by helping the people who put on such a great event.

Thank you

    Everything is still a go with the Feed The MOX Setup Staff event. The rain will be gone within an hour. We have a picnic shelter to use if needed. The staff still sets up in the rain and still gets hungry when it rains. All systems are go! See you soon!

    When you are on the road in Eastwood MetroPark you will encounter two areas where the road is partially blocked by barricades. Continue on past the barricades to the end of the road and park in the large lot. If anyone asks tell them you are with Dayton Hikers and are there to feed the MOX staff. Meet at the picnic shelter on the right near the POD container.

    Because of my crew practice I haven't been able to participate in any hikes yet. A mid-day event gives me ample time to support this event. I will bring a wild rice salad which I recently took to a surprise birthday party and people loved it! Thanks DLM for healthy food options. See Y'all Thursday!

    Thank you to everyone who has volunteered to help with the MOX Setup Staff Feed. John is bringing macaroni salad, Yvonne is bringing a potato and green bean casserole, Katie is bringing chicken wings, Janet is bringing a fresh fruit salad and Rick is bringing a watermelon. I will provide the hamburgers, chicken breasts, buns, condiments, paper plates, plastic spoons and charcoal. Please bring everything you need to serve your dish such as a spoon or tongs, etc. John is in charge of the grill. Please be there at 10:00am-ish at Eastwood MetroPark. Use the entrance on Harshman Road with the traffic light and follow the road all the way to the end. You can't miss us. My cell is[masked]-5417. The Five Rivers MetroParks gang will be glad to see you!
