We still need helpers for the Herding Trial on June 10 & 11. To sweeten things for the volunteers, we’re hosting a Workers’ Raffle, where you could win some wonderful prizes just for helping out!
Here’s a sneak peek at some of the jewelry items (donated by Martha Fruehwald) that are going into the raffle:
Most tasks that we need help with are simple — such as running score sheets or setting out lunch. We can train for the others, such as timing (you have to operate a stopwatch) or scribing (marking the score sheet for the judge). If you’re entered in any of the day’s events, we’ll make sure you have plenty of time to get ready for your own runs.
For more information, contact David Fruehwald at firstname.lastname@example.org or (703) 966-5001.
For a list of volunteer tasks and other information about the trial, look on the Herding Events page.
Great news — we will have food and drinks for sale at the trial, so bring your cash! The caterer will be at the trial on both Saturday and Sunday from 11 to 1 with a variety of food. You don’t have to pre-order your lunch; you may just purchase it at the event.
Everything is homemade. Some examples of things they can serve are: pulled pork, meatball sub, grilled chicken sandwich, burgers and hot dogs, homemade potato and macaroni salads, and desserts. They are open to suggestions, and they try to make different foods each day. We will also have drinks available: iced tea, sodas, lemonade, water.
