Mustard Seed Spin - Volunteer Event

The Mustard Seed School will be holding it's 9th annual "Mustard Seed Spin" , you can read about the event here: http://www.mustardseedspin.org/.

Last year they "experimented" with a new distance and rest stop at discovery park and the Hammerin' Wheels volunteered to setup/man it, they have asked if we are willing to do this again and I said Of Course we are!!

They also have needs for course chaperones, basically you ride up and down the course on the ARBT helping and encouraging kids along the ride.

We need 6-10 people at the rest stop from aprox. 10:30am - 1:30pm, course chaperones from 8am - 2pm (any amount of time you can ride would be great). If you are able to help out please indicate in in the RSVP questions would your preference is and what times you are available.

UPDATE: Joanne has put together a form that will make it easier for me to gather up the volunteer information from the various sources I posted, so if you could please take a moment to fill out this form that would be awesome :-)

    One of my friends is willing to attend and to ride as a chaperone. She'd like to know exactly where to show up and is willing to be there beginning at 8 am. Any details about where she needs to be to get instructions that morning and to sign in (if required) are appreciated. :) Looking forward to a fun and meaningful event!

    Jeff Graybill and I can be course chaperones.

    August 2, 2013

    • Javier A.

      Kewl deal, I'll get the details on chaperoning, sounds like we gotta supply all our own chaperone's for this route this year because of the earlier start at MSS, so you'll probably have to meet at William Pond, unless you want to meet at our end then ride to William Pond ..but I'll get detail and options way before :-)

  • Larry A.

    Daphni and I can help out wherever needed.

    I may be able to volunteer as a chaperone. I may be dealing with soccer or rugby as the two collide around that time and rugby matches are often changed due to field limitations and time constraints.
