Saturday, August 27.  Volunteer opportunity at the Sound of Speed Air  show on August 27.  We will be manning a booth selling either refreshments  or souvenirs.  The club would get part of the proceeds for the Bikes at  Christmas Fund.  I need to know who wants to participate before the Air  show, in order to get them a shirt and meal ticket.  We need at least 6  volunteers, but I would like to have 12 so no one has to work all day.  I  have attached a flier to help explain what we will be doing and what is expected  of us at the Air show.  So far I have the following people to  volunteer.  Please let me know if you would like to join us at the Sound of  Speed Air Show and help the club raise money for our bike giveaway at  Christmas.
