Volunteer Training & Appreciation Party


Dear Volunteers,


We are working hard pulling together loose ends.  Committees are beginning to reach out to their teams.  If you are working on Marshals, Standard Bearers, Walking Scorers, Transportation or Supply Distribution, you have likely been contacted by your committee chair (please double check spam/junk files).  If you requested another Committee, please know that we are sorting through all the details and will be in touch with you soon. 

The GOOD NEWS, we have scheduled our Volunteer Appreciation Party which will be held on Monday, March 13th at 5:30 pm in the Conquistador Club Hospitality Tent.  This celebration includes a delicious meal, adult beverages, raffle prizes and dancing.  There will be a small fee of $25 if you would like to bring a guest.  Please RSVP to margaret@tucsonconquistadores.com or call 520-571-0400 to let us know if you will be attending.  If you plan on bringing a guest to the appreciation party, please RSVP for them as well and payment can be made over the phone or at Uniform pick up.  Volunteers, please be sure to WEAR YOUR BADGE to the Volunteer Appreciation Party, your badge will get you through the line quickly.  Paid guests will receive "tickets" when you pick up your uniform.  

WE APPRECIATE YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT AND PATIENCE…without a Title Sponsor, we are working on a limited budget and could not do this without you!  We look forward to seeing you at the formal training sessions March 11 & 12!  More details on training to follow.

*All updates to newsletter are in RED.
