you should have the dance on april 13th (or maybe the 12th sense thats a saturday) im just throwin that out there... john's birthday... yeah..
We will certainly think about it but it might not correlate with what we have in mind. I’m sure we were thinking earlier and keeping an eye on school calenders. It’s a cute idea but I’m not sure how feasible it is.
Anyways happy gigapause everyone!
Can minors volunteer? I get that we can't chaperone, but could we help out with things like setup and/or cleanup?
Yes minors are allowed to volunteer, it would be greatly appreciated. But only chaperones get in for free, general volunteers do not.
Ah, I'm sorry if the multiple step asks made us lose sight of the ultimate question here, I hadn't meant to confuse you. I understand you all don't accept tupperware as a suitable container against the elements and the hygiene concerns against other members at meets, but I had originally intended to ask about homemade food in direct reference to the dance, which was why I sent it to the dances blog. Most dances had been potluck style, and was wondering if that was nixed because of the rules?
The food is going to be potluck style yes. This is because we are going to have designated people bringing things and not just random people bring random food. I have been asking for people to volunteer to bring food but so far all we have is desserts.
So whats going on with the royal flush?
The royal flush is going to be re opened. I will make a post on this blog and the portlandstuck blog tomorrow about it.
So is homemade food allowed, or is it not? Because in the post, it states if you do want to bring something for the entire group, please make sure it is store bought. I just want to know, because for most of my friends and myself, it's unreasonable for us monetarily to shell out to purchase foods that will likely have a peanut processing warning instead of being able to make food with ingredients we know from home. Sorry to bother you, and thanks for your time!
Homemade foods are okay if you are bringing them for your close friends but please do no bring them for the whole group. It is not sanitary to just leave them sitting out uncovered for people to pick at. This is something we are worried about, we also don’t know who washes their hands ect ect. Another thing we are worried about it allergens and illegal substances in these goods. If this becomes an issue we will take further action. I understand that monetarily it isn’t the best rule but it is for the safety of the group.
With the new rule in Portlandstuck banning homemade foods regardless of ingredients lists or not, what are the plans for food for the dance?
Portlandstuck did not ban food all together. We are worried about allergies and other substances being in the foods. We are allowing food but an admin must see it first. Food will be the same at the dance.
Hey, how does one go about becoming a chaperone/volunteer?
I will be attending this weekends meet and announcing that I am looking for adult who would like to volunteer. I will take down your names. I will also put a post on this blog and the portlandstuck blog in which you can reply if you are wanting to volunteer.
So when is the dance? I haven't been quit updated here sorry
I am looking to plan it around mid June.
I was given all of the confirmation numbers from Mariska and I have gone through them and organized them accordingly. Please if there is anyone who has not received their confirmation numbers yet send an ask to either this blog, the portlandstuck blog, or my personal blog which is rowan-rowan.tumblr.com. In the ask I need to know your first and last name, how much you paid, if you are a minor or not and your URL.
If anyone is wishing for a refund then please contact me and we can plan when to get your money back to you. I am working as fast as I can on this dance so I ask that you please me patient. Again, please please contact me if you have not recieved your confirmation numbers or wish to get a refund.
Is the dance this weekend?
No, the dance has been postponed. It will probably be in April.
