For CCSA club members who are new to Turkey Trot, it is the only competition hosted by the Copper Country Skating Academy. It is a major club event requiring significant help, so volunteers are needed to help with almost everything. The two day event includes a test session on Friday, and competition on Saturday.
There are many ways to help, including:
Accounting Room -- help with paperwork, computer entry, etc..
Music -- push the button to start the music for freestyle and dance programs
Announcing -- read the names to get skaters on the ice for their events
Registration -- check off names and hand out registration information
Ice Monitor -- help get the skaters on the ice for their events
