ATTENTION! If you are going to volunteer tomorrow morning please read and heed the following:
Volunteers are asked to wear long pants or jeans, closed toed shoes, and tops that do not show torso skin. It should be a cool morning, so please remember you might need a light jacket or sweater earlier in the morning.
The event site is Central Green Park in LaCenterra at Cinco Ranch, so navigate to 23501 Cinco Ranch Blvd., Katy, TX, 77494! Take the main turn-in to LaCenterra, and keep going south on the one-way street that runs through the development. The park is towards the back of the existing structures, nestled between D'Amicos on its southern side and Kenzo sushi and Fish City Grille on its north side. It is a oval-shaped synthetic turf lawn with a stage area. There is a parking deck at the northeast side of the shopping center if you would prefer to park there and walk down to the site. (Please keep in mind that if you are coming from I-10, TXDOT says that there will be a freeway closure at I-10 and Grand Parkway/TX 99 this weekend. As I understand it this should be a closure of the fly-over ramp and you should be able to exit via the frontage road. However, just to be safe please plan an alternate route in case you have trouble exiting.) Please also note that just before 8 a.m. the traffic will get heavier as registrants begin arriving.
I (Maureen) will have my cell phone with me; the number is 832-508-8411. I will try to answer it as best I can but it is possible I may miss a call and have to call you back. If you have never met me in person before, I have dark blonde hair, wear glasses, and will have on a headband with black and orange sequin bobble balls on top.
6 or 6:30 a.m.- CAP and Rover Oaks staff arrive
7 a.m.- Set-up/sponsor unloading: We will be setting up signage, decorating, directing exhibitor traffic, preparing registration tables, and helping exhibitors with set-up where necessary.
8 a.m.- Registration: There will be a preregistration and day of registration line. I am going to try to stay as close to registration as possible. Some volunteers will be handling paperwork and accepting money for day-of registrations, additional volunteers behind them getting goodie bags and t-shirts for registrants, and volunteers helping answer questions and direct people which line to go to.
9 a.m.- Dog Walk: volunteers will be stationed along the walk route to help guide participants and make sure no one takes a wrong turn. Walk volunteers will be given a set of orange "pom-poms" to guide walkers with (like the orange batons airport personnel use on the tarmac); feel free to ham it up!
10 a.m.- Costume Contest: Take a breather on this one and enjoy the contest or help us manage the costume contest line and give out door prizes!
11 a.m.- Teardown: the tents and tables will be taken down by the rental company, but we will be getting all the event items packed up and loaded into the CAP and Rover Oaks vehicles, as well as checking the park and surrounding areas to make sure we are not leaving any trash or debris behind.
