Click on this link or copy it to your browser. http://www.volunteerspot.com/login/entry/812345632110312018

1. It will ask you to put in your email address.
2. Click on the big clipboard
3. Find a time slot and game that you want to volunteer for and click on "Sign Up Here!"  It will automatically fill in one spot.
4. Hit Save and Close

Spring Assembly is right around the corner.  Attached is an information sheet regarding this year's event.  Please feel free to photocopy this sheet to place at your tables for your club meetings, put on your websites and in your newsletters.  

Registration can be done in one of two ways:

1)  If your club is a Clubrunner Club, your members can go to our district website and register online (http://www.clubrunner.ca/portal/home.aspx?did=6270) .  There is no cost for this event, so you won't be asked for credit information.  It will ask for your login and password information.  This is the same login and password that your members use for their club website.

2)  If your club is not a Clubrunner Club, you will need to have a club representative take registrations.  No big deal - just a name, e-mail address and club name of all members who are planning to attend.  

I will need all registrations e-mailed to me (district6270@gmail.com ) by April 1, 2012 so that we can give a head count to our caterer for that day.   

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. 

Please help promote this event within your clubs. 

Enjoy this beautiful week.
