    Hey Gang,
    Any interest in Volunteering again this year? I probably will do it no matter what but, It would be great to do it as a group again. If there is any interest I'll see about costumes this year :).

    Yes! Please sign us up!

    We were thinking about this the other day and saying that next time maybe we can bring along one of our own little portable canopies to protect us from the elements. Even if we have to set it up off to the side out of the flow of walkers it might come in handy.

    Costumes or no costumes - I'd still be in.

    *moved volunteer list to page 2*

    Wow - we could probably man 2 water stations with this many volunteers! Or one station and a bunch of costumers (if they let us).

    I think we'd like to do it again also. I picked up one of those canopies of ebay, although it ened up being not exactly what I wanted, but now it's mine :)

    I'm in, as long as it doesn't fall on a weekend i've got something else going on (I hate not having my schedules for everything yet!!!) I'd even be willing to do a costume this time. I had such a blast playing last year, there's no way i'd miss this event this year. And if I come, i'm so going to convince my best friend to come too!!!!

    Actually last year we didn't do any walking ourselves. We manned a water bottle station and handed out water to all the walkers. Of course since it was rainy and cold everyone wanted coffee and hot chocolate - not cold water! :p

    The event headquarters are at Frontier Field in downtown Rochester (this is where we park and sign-in). Our specific water station is on the river bridge on Main Street right near the Clarion hotel. I do recall it being pretty early, but I don't recall the exact times. We should be getting paperwork in the mail soon. If you are able to volunteer, you'll need to get your info to Duane so that he can submit your name as a volunteer.
