Canastota Little League
2008 Concession Stand Volunteer Guide
The Little League Concession Stand generates a significant amount of profit during each baseball/softball season. During 2007, the
Concession Stand generated enough profit to pay the entire cost of that season’s and the All Stars’ umpire fees, trophies and medals
and the League’s annual insurance expense.
It takes a tremendous amount of planning and coordination to organize the Concession Stand and operate it successfully! Missy Babcock
and Sue Arner, as well as all of you who made the Concession Stand a success last year, deserve a BIG THANK YOU!
Each team is expected to staff the Concession Stand at various times during the season. Please ask other parents who have worked the
Concession Stand in the past and you will find that it is a lot of FUN!
Please volunteer if you can! We need three (3) people to work each scheduled shift.
Please note that if your team is scheduled to work the Concession Stand and your volunteers do not show, the Manager of your team
will be suspended from coaching your team’s next game!
Guidelines Regarding Working the Concession Stand
You will help open the Stand. The Stand opens at 6:00pm, but you should be there at 5:30pm to set up, familiarize yourself with the
Stand and to begin cooking. Missy or another Board Member will be there to unlock the Stand and give you an overview. If you are the
only team scheduled, plan to work until 8:30pm. Otherwise, please plan to work until the next team’s shift is scheduled to begin. (Please
note, on Friday, May 16th and on Friday, June 6th the Stand opens at 7:30pm!)
If you are scheduled to work the first shift, you will help open the Stand. Please arrive one-half hour before the time shown on the
Concession Stand Schedule to set up, familiarize yourself with the Stand and to begin cooking. Missy or another Board Member will be
there to unlock the Stand and give you an overview. Please, plan to work until the next team is scheduled to begin.
If you are scheduled to work a subsequent shift, please arrive 15 minutes before the time your shift is scheduled to begin, so you
can familiarize yourself with the Stand. Your shift ends when the next shift is scheduled to begin or approximately one-half hour after
the time the Stand closes, if you are working the last shift.
