  As you all know, the National association of blind students is
planning a lot of exciting things at national convention. What you may
not know however is that we as a board can’t do all of it ourselves.
So we would very much appreciate your help in making the nabs
activities a success this year!
 Where we would most appreciate your assistance is in two areas:
1.  Assistance in staffing the nabs table located in the exhibit hall.
 Here you will be partnered up with a nabs board member selling   nabs
items and handing out nabs literature.  The remaining  schedule for
tabling looks
like this:
 Sunday, July 1:
Shift 3. 3:00p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Monday, July 2:
Shift 4:  8:30 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.
Shift 6: 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.
Shift 7: 3:00 p.m. – 5:00p.m.
Tuesday, July 3:
Shift 8: 12 noon – 1:45 p.m.
 Shift 9: 7:00p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
Wednesday, July 4:
Shift 11: 6:00p.m. – 8:30 p.m.

As you can see, the shifts are filling up, so if you contact me with your
preference, I will be more than happy to get you scheduled in!

2. Staffing the nabs Monte Carlo night fund raiser. This is a great
opportunity to work shoulder to shoulder with us in putting together
one of our most successful events that we do.  For this we will need:
 Individuals who can work an early shift (7:00 p.m. - 9:30 p.m.  Those
individuals will be asked to either
a.      Marshal.
b.      Set up for the event
c.      Deal card games( blackjack, poker, holdemand other such games)
 We will also need Late shift workers (9:30 p.m. – 12:00 a.m.)  Those
individuals would be asked to:
a.      deal card games (blackjack, poker, holdem and other such games)
b.      Assist with event clean- up and playing chip counting.

Please let me know what shift(s) you are interested in working
(exhibit hall, Monte Carlo or both).  Also please supply a contact
phone number where you can be reached during convention.   If you are
interested in working Monte Carlo, please let me know what job you
would like to take on, if you would like to deal and what games you
would like to deal (blackjack, poker, holdem or other such games).
 This is a great opportunity for you to meet the nabs board, and us to
get to know you. As well, this is an equally great opportunity for you
to meet a lot of new people and have some fun at the same time.
 Please contact me if interested.

from you all real soon
 And of course, see you in Dallas!!!
