Exhibitor Building Craft Booth Work Bee
All clubs & exhibitors are responsible for monitoring the building during fair week. There will be a sign-up sheet with several 3 ½ hour time slots listed. Please pick one. Let us know your club or exhibitors name, the person watching the building, and how to reach them during fair week. Two or three people can also split up that time, one person doing the first hour and someone else doing the second etc… Monitors can be leaders, parents, or older teens. If a substitution in the time schedule becomes necessary, clubs or exhibitors are responsible for finding a replacement. Sign-up sheet will be posted in the building. Failure to fulfill a time slot will result in premiums being forfeited.
Monitors Duties: Observe visitors as they pass through the building so we can avoid any vandalism or theft. Answer questions and be helpful to visitors. Be at either end of the building and patrol building as needed. Exhibitors are not to remove any exhibits or trophies without permission of the superintendent. Best of class medallions will be displayed in club booths.
