Hi all,
Please distribute this to anyone you think will help.  We need as many

Good afternoon everyone,

Please let me take a moment to introduce myself for some that may not know 
me.  My name is Mary Lou Brooks I have been involved for years with the 
Goalball tournament and Sports Camp here at WMU.

This year is more challenging than ever for us.  This past fall we all lost 
our good friend Sherry Gordan.  As many of you knew, Sherry went out and got 
volunteers and then kept track of everyone and what they were assigned to 
do.  She knew everyone's strengths and put them to good use.  I am trying 
really hard to do what our dear friend Sherry Gordan had done for years, 
with regards to seeking out volunteers for the National Goal Ball 
Tournament.  We are going to need your help more than ever, we are looking 
for 75 - 85 volunteers.  Without Sherry it has been more difficult trying to 
reach our past supporters like yourself.  We are asking that you take a 
moment to read the 2011 Tournament announcement,  and consider volunteering 
some of your time.  Just think about how happy it would make Sherry to know 
that you are there with us on February 26th and February 27th doing what she 
loved to do, volunteering and giving of your time to help others.

Please take a quick look at the flier and let me know if you have any 
questions and where you would like to volunteer.  There are many types of 
jobs to choose from; Tables have 5 people each that consists of score 
keeper, 2 time keepers, and two , there are at least 2 to 4 line judges at 
each court,  Then we have runners between the courts,  there is a keeper of 
the scoring charts, 3 registration tables, concession stand, lunch servers, 
court setup crew, take down crew and many more.  Please let me know the 
areas you are interested in or have experience in.  There will be training 
for all volunteers.

Typically the Saturday is broke into two shifts morning (7:30 a.m. -1:00) 
and afternoon (1:00-7:00 p.m.).  Sunday only has a morning shift (7:30 a.m. 
to noon).  It is better for us if someone commits to a longer time frame, 
but I am extremely flexible and willing to schedule you for how many hours 
you can give. Bring a friend or two and you could request to be working 

Thank you everyone for helping to get the word out about the event and the 
need for volunteers.

Don't forget Lunch is provided.

Please respond back to me so that I know that your contact information 
worked.  It was on one of the documents that Sherry had given me in 2009.

Take care and Thank you,
Mary Lou
