Still a couple of spots left - any takers?

Time to gather names for the next DR.com volunteer session! This one is on a Federal Holiday - Presidents Day - so maybe that gives some of you who normally can't do a weekday session at 5p a chance to join?

Monday, February 20, 5p-8p [10 spots]

OOPS!

Somehow missed my 2 week reminder to myself - the next DR.com night at DCCK is this coming Monday, 3/26.

Can we get a few people to help get me out of my blunder? Thanks!

BUMP.

Seriously, people, need more than 5 warm bodies next week. What's leaving work an hour early compared to the 5000 people that otherwise wouldn't eat the next day?

One of their tweets today: @DCCK Class 87 graduation is this Friday, April 6th. 13 Students hired as of today!

What is the parking situation nearby. I'd be coming from Reston and the metro is not an option.

Officially, you can't park in the DCCK lot. Plenty of meters on E St.

Unofficially, for the evening shift, they're ok with it. Daytime there are too many cars, but I've never had a problem there parking for the 5p shift.

I'm thinking maybe we should cancel this event going forward. Last few months, my kids and I have been half or the majority of the DR.com attendance.

I can't always make it and have had some last minute cancellations lately, but I really do appreciate having the opportunity available. It's very hard to find individual spots.

I hope you will keep the shift going and also hope that some new folks might join us, at least once, in the coming months!

That being said, I know there had been a request a while back from DCCK to limit volunteering during the summer months due to the large number of church/youth/camp groups that volunteer. Is a summer hiatus (maybe June-August) something to consider?

BUMP. The kids and I are now iffy because of late breaking kids activities. Can we get some more volunteers to help fill the gap?

Not sure what else to do. Last month we had 1 person attend.

I have the reservations for 10 spots a month for the rest of the year, so I'll keep posting, but I'm not going to reserve after that. And I'm going to hand back to DCCK any open spots a week before.

OK, I give up. Down from 10 to 3 tonight.

If you want to be on the list for future nights, send me a PM, and I'll handle off the board with email, but I won't be posting them here any more.
