Von Hansen’s Brat Sale

On Saturday September 29 and Sunday September 30, Metcalf Masters will be running a brat stand at Von Hansons and we need volunteers to help run it. Now we would like to have 3 adults and 3 children during each shift, so here’s a chance to get to know some other people in the club.

Funds will be split between individual accounts (of those who volunteer) and the club General Fund(Tournaments, Nationals, Social, Equipment, etc).
We still have multiple shifts available.
Here is the link to the sign up in case you did not receive an invite.
