You should be receiving your Kernel's Popcorn Order Form from your Fundraiser Team Rep or Team Manager soon (See the attached file)
This is the first time Dorchester Ringette has done this popcorn order so I hope it successful.
This Popcorn order is to replace the second chicken order.....with that being said some of you still mentioned that you want the second chicken order, so we will do another one for those who want to order chicken.
The chicken order date will be announced after the popcorn order.
This year is a big fundraiser/sponsor year since we are getting new jersey’s which we have not had in over 20 years now. Usually the sponsor and fundraiser money goes towards ice, refs, time keepers, regionals, banquet, etc . We need additional money to cover the jerseys. It will be nice to play games with a nice new jersey!

I now have the Rheo Thompson Mint Smoothies which we are selling for $2.00 each.
Most people bring the Mint Smoothies to work and they sell really fast. Others buy them to put on Christmas presents.
If you do sell all of them then we will see if other teams need help selling theirs or I can buy more - just let me know.
I also have the Pook Toques that we are selling for a reduced rate of $15.00 (they can be worn in many different ways - please see the image below
Please contact Janet Hammond for more information.

As with any non-profit sports organization we depend on our Volunteers to help with the success of the association. By now you have noticed a few volunteer positions have been available from your team managers. A list of bondable positions will be available shortly! Please do not wait for us to come to you to work off your bonds. We encourage you to get out and get involved, remember it is for the girls!!
A lot of you are asking where the schedule is. For all you new parents this is normal at the beginning of the year to be waiting like this. Our league is called the Western Region Ringette League and we are currently waiting on the schedulers to give us our game times.
Let me give an explanation of the procedure:
1. Teams were just declared in our region September 20th.
2. Associations to Submit available ice for scheduling by: September 27th
3. The Western Region Ringette League schedulers are currently trying to schedule all games
from U8 to U19 in our region.

Right now everything is with the region and once we know, we will let you know. This procedure will happen again in December/January once they re-seed all the teams. Hope this answers a few questions that everyone may have.
Please feel free to contact me at anytime.
Go Dragons Go!
Hello Team Managers,
I will be the Fundraising Executive for Ringette this season. I am new to this position so I really hope I do a good job. At anytime if you or anyone has an idea that would be a good fundraiser to help with costs for ringette I am all ears, no idea is a bad idea (well unless it is illegal) LOL.
CHICKEN ORDERS/PIZZA ORDERS
Okay, we need money, so to make this fun for the kids I, personally, will give a gift to the one person that raises the most money for the chicken orders and pizza orders in total. So I would ask that you photo copy your orders and keep track of them yourselves. I will give the prize at the end of season at the banquet and announce your child's name to everyone so everyone will no who won (and it will be bragging rights for the kid). So bring the orders to your family/friends/co-workers etc. If you have more than one Dorchester ringette player then just put both girls names on one order form, and if they win I will make sure the gift is good of all of them.
BOTTLE DRIVE (URGENT) *******
I will be handing out flyer's at the parade to advertise that there will be a Bottle Drive on Saturday, October 13, 2012 (pick up of bottles will be from 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 noon. This is where I will ask that people that have empty beer bottles (that want to help Dorchester Ringette) that they leave their empties at the end of their lawn OR they can drop them off on my lawn which is 235 Byron Ave., Dorchester on that date. Please see attached a flyer for you to send to everyone you know or even put it on your mailbox about the Yard Sale and Bottle Drive. Also send out a reminder a day before to them. What we will be collecting is the following: beer bottles and cans, cooler bottles and cooler cans, vodka, whisky and wine bottles.
The volunteers will have to sort the cans from bottles and count the cans - doesn't matter if they are palm bays mixed with beer cans - they all go together. They have plastic bins so we have something to load them all into. Then the clear beer bottles must be sorted from the brown bottles and green bottles. I would suggest that you bring boxes or blue bins to help sort.
URGENT - Needed will be 1 volunteer per team that have a pick-up truck or van that could help collect and drive to pick up the bottles. This will be worth 2 hours of your bond. Your kids could help pick up the bottles (depending on age). Team Managers I need to know who your volunteer is as soon as possible. One person should not do all of Dorchester by themselves.
On Saturday, October 20, 2012 from 7:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. we will have a Yard Sale at my house on 235 Byron Ave., Dorchester. Needed is items to sell as I can not do a yard sale without items to sell. LOL Please bring to my house any items that you want to donate to the Dorchester Ringette before the date listed above. ALL money raised will go towards the Dorchester Ringette. Also if you want to bring baked goods or lemonade so that we can sell at the yard sale that would be great too. At the end of the yard sale if you want your unsold items returned to you then you will have to list your item in detail with your name and phone number on a piece of paper so that you can pick up the item after the yard sale. If you do not want the unsold item back then it will go to the Salvation Army. Please keep in mind if something does not sell and it is a large item like furniture - you will need to pick this up at the end of the yard sale.
If you know anyone that will be interested in Sponsoring Dorchester Ringette please contact Michelle Scott at email@example.com . All money for Dorchester Ringette goes towards the ice, refs, time keepers, and our year end Regional tournament.
Team Mangers - as you probably know, please keep track of your teams BOND hours on a chart. And let the parents know when it is complete (but not until after the task is done). 6 hours PER ringette player for a bond to worked off. The bond can be worked off on any DORCHESTER ringette team but it is up to the parent's to keep you in the loop so you (the team manager) are aware that they have worked off their bond. Parents - you should know how many hours you have worked as well and if you have not worked them off, and need something to do to work it off then you have to tell your team manager and then they can ask me what they can do.
Some Bond Hours will go towards the following:
Parade - (4 hours for the one person from each team)
Bottle Drive - 2 Bond Hours (one person per team)
Chicken Order (first and second order) - U10 team - Sharon Smith and Jen Johnston are looking after this.
Sewing of Name Bars and Sponsor Bars and Badges - one person per team can do this for their 6 hour bond but this job would also entail water bottles, rings and first aid kit to the bench and taking them back to the dressing room for the entire season.
Pizza Orders - need someone to be in charge of this to work off their entire bond (6 hours) which will be the person to organize, get the forms, hand out the forms to the teams, organize pick-up and delivery. One can have one other person to help in ONLY the delivery and sorting (handing out the pizza at a location) which will be 2 bond hours for that other person. We were thinking of orders in late November and devilery date as early December, but that something the person incharge will look after.
Lottery Tickets - Stacey Downing is doing this.
Guelph Tournament (usually we need three hours worth of time PER TEAM divided by two people so 1 1/2 hours for each person). More details will follow once we find out more information. Team Manager - you will need to collect $2.00 per family to go towards a gift for the gift table when the time comes.
End of year Banquet - (example: setting up the food, decorating, setting tables, chairs, cleaning up, prize table extra). Talk to Kate Dayman about this since she knows more information.
Selling Rheo Mints Smoothies and Pook Toques - (This should be easy to sell the Rheo's since most people just bring them to work and they sell really quickly). Not sure how many bond hours yet for this, might go with selling other stuff as well.
Popcorn - Maybe we can sell popcorn - I think I will look into that or if you know anything about this let me know and it will go towards your bond hours if you organize and give out the information to each team to sell and collect the money from each team.
For any of the listed jobs you are to tell your Team Manager if interested and then the Team Manager can let me know.
Your bond cheque will be destroyed by Barb Nancekivell, the Treasurer, at the end of the season IF the bond is worked off.
Sometimes in the past everyone works off their bond hours but we still need help, in this case it would be wonderful if some parents could put in some extra help in if needed. We hate to beg but will if needed.
