The Pampered Chef closes out today. If you have not done your order, and plan to do so, you have until tonight to get it in. www.pamperedchef.biz/lynntaylor click on "order products" and search for "Relay for Life".

We are finishing up the tee shirt design and hope to get those ordered in the next day or so. If you have not told me your tee shirt size, you will not get a shirt. These are the red shirts that we will wear the night of as our team shirts, and will stand out from the free white tee shirts that the ACS provides for all walkers. I have not heard from these people: (the last names were removed to protect the forgetful)

We got confirmation on the Papa Johns Pizza for the night of. They will be sending out their "Pizza Mobile" (they called it a trailer...) to be onsite. This trailer does not make pizzas, it just stores them and keeps them warm. It does open up to serve the pizzas and serves as a nice attention getter seeing as it is about 15 feet long. Papa Johns is giving us plates and napkins which saves us money and we are getting the pizzas for $6 each and we can charge what we want. If we charge $2/slice we will make $10 per pizza. I was hoping to get the pizzas for free, but it should still do well. They are giving us over 50% so we are happy about that. We will just have to keep an eye on the pizza supply and order fresh when it is running low. We will have cheese, pepperoni, sausage and pepperoni/sausage. Since it is just slice and serve we will need folks to volunteer to hand out pizzas.

We will have sign ups for committees that I will send out soon: (set up & tear down~need lots of help since I broke my arm and can't lift anything, Pizzas, decorating the site, luminary bags (filling and placement of luminarys), face painting/tattoos, lap bead sales, Mr & Mrs Relay (need someone to wear the gorilla costume), breakfast (we are working on getting coccoa, coffee and food for breakfast since John & Jacks pancake shack will not be there. This could be a big money maker since there are usually very few teams that do breakfast items) and finally, advertising (put flyers for our campsite on the back of restroom doors and hand out on track).** We also need to have at least 1 person on the track at all times. I will get that list done next week for the Luminary Decorating Party. I will put the list on email after that to make sure it gets filled. If everyone does a little, then no one does alot.

I think that is all for now.
