Request for Tourney Help

Our weekend tournament is fast approaching...less than 4 weeks away!  With committed entrants from 10 states (plus one from Canada!) already, it is shaping up to be everything I hoped it would be.  While I feel everything is in very good shape preparation-wise, there are a number of things that I would love to have help on, if anyone has a bit of spare time.

Would anyone be willing to help with any of the following activities?

-Transportation:  Be available to give (or arrange) rides to/from the airport or other hotels to Fairfield Inn.  I'd like to be able to give your phone number and/or email to anyone needing assistance in this regard.

-Printing:  This includes individual entrant tally sheets (on thick stock, double-sided if possible for the Main Event version), game reporting slips, blank/challenge slips, etc.  It would be great if these could be color-coded by division.  Bonus points for making name tags...people will be coming from all over the place, so I think they could be very helpful.

-Setup/Cleanup:  Assist with setting up the room before the Early Bird on Friday.   One or two folks that could arrive by, say, 4pm, would be sufficient.  Similarly, 2-3 folks that can stay after on Sunday and help with cleanup would be great.

-Registrar:  Help greet people and hand them their score sheets as they arrive.  Collect any at-the-door entry fees for Early Bird or Night Bird.  Keep me informed of any late arrivals or no-shows.

-Food: This is optional, and hotel guests have the continental breakfast, but I think it would be great if we could provide some home-baked goodies (or a fruit tray and bagels/donuts from Meijer or whatever) in the morning, along with maybe a pot of coffee and/or juice.  Also, for lunch, we could look at catering options for anyone not interested in Cracker Barrel or going off-site.  Anything that simplifies things for visitors is a good thing and makes them more likely to return.  Anyone that has attended the Knoxville events knows what I mean here.  I would love if someone could "own" this, and look at options and see what we could do.

If you can help with any of the above, or anything else I might have missed, please let me know as soon as possible.  THANK YOU!

I will be glad to provide home-made baked goods for both days.
Also would greet people & hand out anything needed for Sat. & Sun. I won't be there on Friday.

Thanks, everyone! I'll get with you individually (or at club) and we can work out details.
