Be a Volunteer!

The Lone Star Curling Club is a 501c3 nonprofit organization. As a very small organization the club only is able to run because of volunteers of the members. There are a lot of different ways you can help the club.

  1. Be an active member.
    1. Membership is the only way the Lone Star Curling Club will expand.
    2. This document contains multiple ways you can help out the club. Please get involved!

 

  1. Be a board member.
    1. Each year we have a vote from Full Members to choose 10 board members. These board members will choose the four officers. The four officer positions are President, Vice President, Treasurer and Secretary. The other six board members will also be given roles such as Competition and Membership.

 

  1. Help setup the ice for curling.
    1. It takes the club 30 minutes to setup the ice. We need to move rocks, brooms and sliders. We need to setup hacks and scoreboards. We need to pebble the ice. The more people involved the faster this process will go which means more time to complete the games.

 

  1. Help takedown the ice for curling.
    1. We typically have 10 minutes to remove the hacks, scoreboard, brooms, sliders and rocks. The more people involved the less time this will take.

 

  1. Help fellow curlers during games.
    1. If you see an opponent, teammate or someone on another sheet do something wrong, please help that person out so they will improve.

 

  1. Help out during Learn-To-Curl events.
    1. The most critical event of the Lone Star Curling Club to gain members is the Learn-To-Curl events. If you are interested in helping for either on-ice or off-ice please let a board member know so we can get your name on a list to be notified for future events.

 

  1. Help out during corporate events.
    1. Corporate events typically take place during the weekday and usually in the morning. To help compensate your time off from work, each person helping out for corporate events will get $40 credit that can be used for future curling. If you are interested in helping for on-ice for a corporate event please let a board member know so we can get your name on a list to be notified for future events.

 

  1. Help out during bonspiels.
    1. The Lone Star Open Bonspiel requires many hours of planning and organization before and during the event. It also requires multiple people helping out to make sure all the on-ice and off-ice events run smoothly.

 

  1. Donations of goods
    1. If you have any extra curling equipment that you no longer use, we always welcome your donation.
    2. During the bonspiel, we ask for donations of prizes that can be used for the raffle. The raffle was one of the big money makers in the bonspiel last year and we really appreciate all the people who made some donations.
    3. A few years ago we asked for cash donations from the club to purchase the hacks that we currently use. We really appreciated this from everyone involved.

 

  1. Donations of services
    1. If you have any skills that can help improve the Lone Star Curling Club we would appreciate your help. These skills could be financial, planning, managing, writing, marketing, advertising, web development, construction, woodworking or anything else.
