Band Aides are under contract with the
Norwin School District to operate the stadium
concession stand at all of the fall sports
events held at the stadium, including but
not limited to Friday night football games,
JV football games, girls and boys soccer
games, girls field hockey, freshman and
middle school football. |
Revenues from the concession stand are a very important contribution to the band yearly budget. It is important that the Band Aides volunteers continue to provide first class service in the concession stand to our Community.
The success of this fundraising effort depends on each band/guard familyís participation.
Each band/guard family is expected to volunteer time working in the stadium concession stand for the fall sports events as each band/guard family benefits from the concession stand profit.
Without the concession stand income, each studentís fair share portion would be much more than it currently is.
Attached below is the Norwin Band Aides Concession Stand Sports Events calendar.
All times listed on the calendar are the actual start times of each athletic event.
Also attached is the master concession stand sign up schedule which shows the actual
volunteer report times (which are one hour before the event start times to allow for food prep)
and the number of volunteers needed for each event.
Following are the concession stand (CS) points guidelines:
- Parents/guardians and high school age or older students who work at the stadium CS at a fall sporting event
will receive 10 points for each sporting event and/or Friday football shift
(prep to half-time and half-time to end of clean-up) worked.
For each eligible CS event worked, 10 points will be deposited into the band/guard studentís points account to be used towards their Fair Share obligation.
A parent/guardian, high school student, and/or family member can work an unlimited number of CS events and earn 10 points for each event and /or as long as an open work slot is available on the sign-up schedule for the CS sporting event.
The schedule slots will be filled on a first come, first serve basis.
- Members with multiple students and/or in winterguard/floor crew and those who are in need of some financial assistance are encouraged to work as many events as possible to receive additional points toward their points account for their multiple students, for the winterguard/floor crew season and financial needs.
- Members must work the complete event from prep to finish to be eligible to receive their 10
points for the event. A sign-up sheet with the names of those scheduled to work the CS fall
sporting event will be provided for each event.
Members are required to sign the schedule sign-in sheet upon arrival at the CS with final approval by the event CS leader that the member worked the complete event to receive their 10 points in their points account.
It is the responsibility of the member to make sure that they sign-in.
It is not the responsibility of the CS Leader to sign a worker in.
- Students (high school age or older) are welcome to work after school events in the CS as needed and scheduled.
Studentís CS work hours are eligible towards a familyís work credit.
Student work hours may also count toward a studentís service hour requirements if needed.
No more than 50% of the available work slots can be filled by students, and students are not permitted to handle money.
- Points earned at the stadium concession stand will be reported to Dawn Tatters, the points manager, at the end of each month.
- Points earned can be carried over to future school years. Any points that are left in a studentís points account after high school graduation will be put into the band general fund.
We are also in need of CS event leaders for each fall sport. A CS event leader would be present for the respective sport and provide direction for the workers.
As a lead, you are guaranteed a spot for that particular sporting event.
The event leader position can also be shared by several people or even a band section.
We will also need parents to work the CS for some Saturday events during band competitions.
If you do not plan to go to a particular Saturday band competition, please consider working at the CS.
Once you have reviewed the CS calendar and selected the events that work for your schedule,
all you need to do to sign up to work is to send an e-mail to "firstname.lastname@example.org"
with the name of the sporting event you plan to work along with the date and time, the name(s) of the volunteer(s) who will be working, and the name of the band/guard student(s) who should receive the points credit.
Slots will be filled on a first come, first serve basis for each event.
The work schedule will be updated on the band website on a regular basis.
You will be able to check the work schedule on the website to confirm the date(s) you requested has been posted, to see if a slot is open for an event that you and/or a family member are available to work, and to check to see if there are friends working events that you would like to work with.
As a suggestion, it is good to consider working while the band has practice on Monday and Wednesday evenings which last about the same time as the sports event. Please keep in mind that there is a possibility that changes may be made to the fall sports calendar so be sure to check the calendar on the website for the latest information.
To comply with food safety guidelines, all concession stand volunteers must abide by the following:
Long hair must be pulled back Head must be covered with a hat or hairnet so be sure to bring your own
Closed toe shoes Only, jewelry should be wedding band and stud earrings.
Gloves must be worn when handling food.
The Norwin Band Aides also provide a concession stand at other events including the Norwin Band Festival,
November Craft Show, Winterguard shows, and the May Car Cruise.
There are no points awarded for the concession stand volunteers for these events.
