Here are the details for this weekend's clean-up. We have specific work projects that need to be done. Can you help? You can bring a friend, or family member to help complete your hours. If you have five friends, bring them along and you'll only have to do one hour each. Easy!
I will be there at 9am Saturday to get you started. Lua Warkentin will be there at 9am Sunday.
On Saturday, we would like the new rails on the hunter ring to be painted, as well as some touch-up on the judging boxes and some of the ring rails. This would be a perfect job for some of our younger members. Pls send me a note or talk to your coach and they can get in touch with me. It helps if you can bring an old paint brush and painting clothes. We could use 2-4 people.
Also on Saturday, we need 2 volunteers to wash the dressage ring markers. They are currently quite yellow from water spraying on the white surface last season. We have bought acid wash. Pls bring protective eyewear and rubber gloves. Let me know if you can help with this project. It's a grown-ups job.
On SUNDAY, board member Lua Warkentin and member Julie Nurse are going to paint our jump standards! They need 3 volunteers to spend a couple of hours painting. And a huge thank you to both Lua and Julie Nurse for taking the jump rails home and painting them over the winter. That's a huge part of the job done already.
If anyone has the inclination... our wheelchair entrance to the washrooms at the back of the clubhouse is in need of repair (rebuild?). Contact us if you can help with this one pre-season.
And lastly.... if you have noticed something that really should be tackled, let us know! If you can help us with the job, even better.
While the board does its best to maintain the KRC grounds to the best of its ability, we do rely on the help of our members to ensure the facility is at its best. Therefore, KRC members are required to volunteer six hours throughout the year to satisfy the membership’s volunteer requirement.
In addition to the regular cleanup tasks needing to be done, weather permitting, we will be painting some of the jumps, primarily for the hunter ring, as well as the ring boards for the portable dressage ring. If you have any equipment that you are willing to bring, particularly a paint sprayer, please do! Other helpful items to bring are:
• Rakes • Wheelbarrows • Brooms • pitch forks, and • gas powered “whipper-snippers”
If you are unable to attend this cleanup weekend, there are various other volunteer opportunities available for you to satisfy your hours. In particular, we will be needing many volunteers for the upcoming Spring Classic H/J show. Even if you have satisfied your required hours, any interested members should please contact the show organizers about helping out at this fun event.
