AH Stephens Volunteer Day Announcement

Postby Joe Mines » Mon Mar 07, 2016 7:59 pm

Rule of 3 is sponsoring a Volunteer Work Day at AH Stephens State Park on Saturday, March 12. This is the second year we are participating, and we'd like to invite all the members of our community and their families to be a part of giving back to our favorite event site. The park receives funding based on the raw number of volunteers that sign up, including children, so I'd like to encourage everyone to come out, even if it's only for a few hours Saturday. Last year our community provided 24 new volunteers for the park, and the appreciation demonstrated by the park rangers, management, and long-time volunteers was humbling. I can honestly say we made a difference to those people and to the park. As part of our arrangement with the park, we have the park available to us Friday March 11 thru Sunday March 13. Many of our volunteers came out Friday night last year and had a great time socializing. If you don't have plans for that night, I'd encourage you to come on out. An idea that's been kicked around is for the tavern to be made available for people that want to tabletop, so if we have any GM's out there that want to try out new ideas or just entertain people for a couple of hours, please do!

The Work - Saturday is the work day. A.H. Stephens will work with us to coordinate resources and tasks, and a detailed breakdown of work that needs to be done will be made available Saturday morning. The type of work is what you would expect for preparing the park for the season – cleaning the cabins, clearing debris from paths, clearing cabin roofs of debris, checking structural soundness, repairing minor damages, etc. People with construction/electrical/plumbing skills are at a premium for this and we’d greatly appreciate your participation. Volunteers being organized into work groups, same as last year We’ll work until the assignments are done or night arrives, though we finished up around 4pm last year.

Child Care - To assist with the volunteer effort, child care will be organized by Rule of 3. Jen Mines will head this up, with the stipulation of additional adult assistance based on the number of children in her care. We won’t know how many additional adults are needed until we know how many kids are present, so please let us know if you intend to bring your child(ren). Child care will be based in/around the tavern, which will also have electricity & water.

Housing & Food - The general plan as it stands now is for Area 2 to be available for those that want to come Friday night. Electricity, gas and water will be turned on in that area. We plan on providing breakfast Saturday morning, and the park will host us for lunch Saturday. You are welcome to bring whatever food you want and use the tavern/kitchen, just clean up as you go. The camp will be available for our use again Saturday night so feel free to stay if you want. As it is a volunteer day there is no charge for the cabins on site. If people want to rent a cottage that is their personal decision. Rule of 3 will not sponsor or support any activities off site.

Perks - There will be Rule of 3 game incentives awarded for participating at this volunteer event. I'll post the amount after I consult with both games; the intention is to make volunteering worth your time.

Thanks for all you do and we hope to see you there!

Thanks to everyone that came out to AH Stephens this weekend! We had 27 people from our community sign up, besting the 24 that came out last year. We actually got more done than park management had counted on. You folks rock!

If you wanted to lend a hand but real life got in the way, fear not. Rule of 3 will be sponsoring this event again next year. We hope to see you then!

Not to sound greedy, but was the compensation for this ever decided on? Just trying to calculate my build...
