We are preparing for the 2018 season, which includes work projects at the fields in addition to drafts, team assignments, uniform/equipment procurement, etc. The weather has not cooperated, and our hope of starting outdoor preparation early has given way to looking to try and cram everything into the next three weeks.
We are asking each of you to consider committing to working on any or all of the work days and any of the separate projects. Your response to firstname.lastname@example.org with a commitment to any of the above will help us plan the execution of the work. Please note any special skills or tools you have that you think might be helpful.
General work days will take place the three Saturdays (3/24, 3/31, 4/6) before opening day (April 14). The work to be done will be general cleanup, building maintenance (including painting and repairs), field maintenance (including raking, leveling, grass and weed trimming, fence and stands repairs) and concession stand cleanup repair.
There will also be cleaning of the concession stand and kitchen and organizing of volunteers to help manage the food concession through the season.
