Greetings everyone. We are just days away from crowning a new champion. Many of you are already on the road to the attend the largest party in the desert. The Ranch is looking great and is almost ready to begin accepting the cooks and spectators that travel from all over the country to participate in this great event. May you all have safe travels and we look forward to our time in the desert.
Friday Morning Reception
New Parking Guidelines at the Ranch...
Good day everyone. Last year at the Ranch we had several issues with available parking at the Main concession on the extremely active days. This year, we have added a marked Handicap Parking area in front on Main concession. This area has Handicap Parking signs and will be flagged in blue. If you do not have a TICC Handicap Parking sign please be respectful of those that do. TICC Handicap Parking signs are available from the ED, Keith Karaff, once you get to the Ranch. Thank you for your help in this matter.
Here comes the bride.........
CALLING ALL VOLUNTEERS
ATTENTION! CALLING ALL VOLUNTEERS!
If you are coming to TICC, we need your help. There are many open slots for volunteering. Follow this link to sign up to volunteer: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e0b4aaead2ea2f94-ticc1
WHY signing up this way is the best?
Because those in charge of jobs have a way to stay organized, have lists with time slots and names, and even have contact information should the need arise.
Do I have to use this to volunteer?
No, but why not? It’s easy, quick, and you can even change/add/remove after you’ve registered. It’s so easy even non-computer people can do it! Plus, the person in charge will have only ONE list of their volunteers and not have to keep up with multiple lists.
Can I sign up for more than one job?
Absolutely! You will have an option to find available jobs/days/times and you simply check the box saying you want to volunteer for that job.
Can I register for my friend/spouse/significant other?
Yes you may. There is a box under each job asking how many you are registering for. You can then use the “comment” section to list the people you are registering for.
What if the job I want is full?
The best option you have at that point is to contact the person in charge of that job, as it is up to them. Their phone number and email address is listed in the job description.
What are the jobs that are listed?
The front gate – run by Rick Powell. There are so many slots still open for this job, and it is one that, once worked you want to do it again next year. It is a fun job! You get to see the people arriving and everyone is happy! The time slots are 2 hours each and Rick needs 4 people per slot.
