GCFI Volunteers Needed!

WE NEED YOUR HELP!

Calling all Wagon Wheel FSC members/supporters! We are in need of volunteers for the 2016 GCFI Competition from Friday, 9/9 – Sunday, 9/11 at the Edge Ice Arena (735 E Jefferson St. Bensenville, IL). 

This competition is a best way to earn your four hours of volunteer requirements or simply just volunteer your time.

Please register at the following link: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/8050b4da9ae2ca75-gcfi4 .  From there you can pick the job/time that works best for you!

We are looking to fill the following jobs:

REGISTRATION
This assignment can be the greatest asset to the competition. It is the first contact skaters, parents, and coaches have with the competition. Aside from being the hub of the competition for information it also serves as the check-in desk for skaters and coaches. This is where skaters get their goody bags, turn in their music and ask if the competition is on time. Coaches also must check-in here and receive any credentials available. The registration desk also provides printed results at a small charge.

ICE MONITOR
These individuals are responsible for keeping the competition moving by making sure all of the skaters are ready to take the ice on schedule. At least one monitor is positioned at the entrance to the ice and will inform skaters and coaches of starting order. They are in communication with the Referee, Announcer, and Registration desk to quickly communicate and problems or changes. They also are responsible to be sure gates are closed and alert officials if there is anything on the ice. An additional monitor is to help round up skaters for the current group as well as help gather up the next group.

RUNNERS
The runners’ function is to “run” results from the judges platform to the accounting room (and back for signature) posting the results and disseminating the results to awards, registration, and officials. The runner sits at rink-side until the end of an event then collects the judges’ papers.  It is imperative that the runner keep the results secret until he/she posts the results.

MUSIC
This person is responsible for making sure the music for the current event is in order of performance.
Music is played on equipment furnished by the competition. This person sits with the announcer and operates the player as the skater signals readiness.

AWARDS
This assignment is to distribute the awards to happy successful skaters. Awards will be organized and distributed according to the placement sheets that the runner furnishes. Each recipient will initial the results copy that indicates they have received their award. In case of any abnormalities, ties or missing award, they will take all information necessary to be sure the skater receives their award.

ANNOUNCING
The announcer calls the skaters onto the ice using a provided script.

HOSPITALITY
There are three parts to this committee:
Official Hospitality – in charge of setting up, ordering and cleaning up food for the officials during the competition. There is a budget and planning is paramount.
Coaches and Volunteer Hospitality – in charge of planning, purchasing, setting up, keeping stocked, cleaning up the area set up to serve coffee, lunch, snacks for the coaches and volunteers of the competition. This person works with the Official Hospitality chair to provide tableware and food from early morning to late evening for these important persons.
