Mike Clifford Posted July 29, 2007 Report Share Posted July 29, 2007 We did a dry run at the facility today- Herrick Lake in Wheaton. The event is Saturday, August 11 from 10 to 2. I need our volunteers on-site at 9 a.m. Our target number is 200 kids. We are a little less than half-way there, but expect a surge with the press we are generating for online sign-ups at www.operationhomefront.net/illinois The kids will be separated into 3 groups and given colored "dog tags". Red, white and blue. There will be 3 stations they will rotate to. Fishing Casting Arts/crafts/bean bag games, etc. 65 kids in each group will descend upon each station at a time. Our 4 casting targets alone won't handle that, so we have some other implements being given to us that the FPD uses for the same purpose, to add to the number of target points. Our sponsor for the Kids Casting portion is the Chicago Wolves. I have 30 logo T-shirts and other goodies that we'll give out as prizes for this. I'll work something up for that...minor detail. 9 FM (We play anything) radio is doing a live remote. Dennis McKinnon of the '85 Bears will be on hand. Other local sports celebrities are anticipated. Lots more to be announced. WHO IS COMING TO HELP? We can use all the help we can get for this special event. PLEASE chime in here in this thread. THANK YOU!
