This is the biggest event we host all year and I would appreciate the support of all the students and their families. Since this is our event, I would like to have a big turnout from our members! I would like to encourage all students to compete in at least one event. This tournament is for students of all ages and experience levels.

I would also like to ask for the assistance of the parents and adult students to help run the tournament. I need help in the following areas:

1. Set up/Break Down Crew – I am looking for 6-8 adults. At least one or two with a pickup truck to haul the mats and other equipment. We will meet on Friday, December 2nd at 12:30pm at Complete Martial Arts to load the equipment. The set up at the tournament location will start at 1:30pm.  The break down will begin as soon as the tournament is over. Hopefully by 3 or 4pm. I will provide an equipment list.

2. Security Guards – I am looking for someone to stand guard at the door and check hand stamps to make sure everyone is paid to enter I also need someone to stand guard to the entrance of the competition floor to make sure only competitors, coaches, and masters are on the competition floor.

8:20am – 9am, 9:45am-10:15am, 11:30am-12pm, 1pm-1:30pm

3. Registration & Board Sales Crew – I am looking for adult volunteers to check people in, confirm events, stamp guests, and deliver or sell boards to competitors. There will be 3 time slots and we need 3-4 people for each.

8:20am – 9am, 9:45am-10:15am, 1pm-1:30pm

4. Equipment Sales Table Manager – There will be a table where we sell all sparring gear required for the tournament, t-shirts, books, etc. I will have a price list for all items. We will accept cash and credit card using the square app. We need volunteers for 1 hour or 30 minute shifts from 8:30am until 3pm.

5. Ring Directors – We need 2-4 adults who can call competitor names, record scores, tally scores, and record winners. We have two time slots 9am until 12pm and 1:30 until 3pm.

6. Time Keepers – One per ring for sparring matches. We have two time slots 9am until 12pm and 1:30 until 3pm. Time slots can be broken down to 30 minutes per person.

7. Food and Beverage Crew – We will have 3 private rooms that need to be kept stocked with food and beverages. Provide food and beverages for guests at the Head Table. I will provide all the food and beverages. 12:30-1:30 we will provide lunch for all committee members and volunteers.

Please contact me directly by email, phone, or in person if you are able to help out. I will provide lunch and a t-shirt for all volunteers. I will also meet with you and go over in detail all aspect of the position. I appreciate everyone’s help to make this event a great success!!
