Event Description
Public Advertisement:
Pirates of the Chattahoochee Family Day!
October 24, 2009
12:00noon – 4:00p.m.

Join us for a day of family pirate fun and adventure! Boat rides, kid’s art activities and games, pirate tattoos, face painting, real cannon ball toss competition, music, jewelry making, treasure hunting and more!

General Information:
Pirates of The Chattahoochee Family Day is an event we put on just to have fun! It is geared for all ages with an emphasis on families with children. We expect over 500 people to attend. There will be over 30 different activities or “stations”. (See the complete listing of stations in Pirates of The Chattahoochee Stations for detailed information.) The public is invited to participate in all of our activities and will walk away with a number of prizes and things they have made. Most of the activities are made so those who didn’t arrive looking like a Pirate will definitely leave looking like one!

Volunteer Jobs
Volunteers Needed
Volunteers run a station.

There are over 30 different stations to work. Most are at tables with chairs. Each station will have instructions and an example of the activity for the volunteer. There will be 30 minutes before the public arrives for training, orientation and for each volunteer to test their activity. None of the activities will be complicated or require any special skills.
• Refreshments, snacks, lunch and breaks will be provided.
• It will be very busy and fun so time will fly.

Volunteer Attire
• Clothes: Pirate attire or casual jeans and t-shirt that you can get dirty. Many volunteers look forward to this event all year so they can go all out in their pirate attire, so feel free to also come decked out. If you have a red, black or even a black and white striped shirt to help you blend in with the rest of the scalawags, that would be great!
• Shoes: Comfortable shoes a must, such as sneakers.
• Sunscreen: Some stations are outside. (Please notify the staff if you need to be indoors for any reason.)

10:30a.m. – Volunteers arrive
12:00 noon – Cannon Firing Marking the Beginning of the Event
12:00 noon – Event Opens to the Public
4:00p.m. – Cannon Firing Marking the End of the Event

Where should I go when I arrive?
Go to the staff person at the main desk and let them know you have arrived. Staff will be training volunteers as you arrive. If there isn’t anyone to go through training and orientation with you, take a seat near the front desk, as they will be checking in for new arrivals every few minutes.

I hate that the Museum got left holding the bag... I don't recall anyone promising anything to them from last year? We were just notified about 2 1/2 weeks ago from Nicola asking if we would participate again and i told her probably not that we had made other plans.. but your group took it... so i hope you have fun with it and enjoy it..

Thanks! We will! Maybe next year scheduling can be worked out so there is not two events on top of each other! I know that was a goof being noone knew about Pirates on the Chattahoochee!
