I need a co-organizer to help with the Fall MAHHA this year and to organize it in the future. There are so many people that help with it, that it practically runs itself. I need someone who would like to work with me as the pre-event organizer and be the go-to person at the Blue Ridge Center.
Redtail and Bugbait started the MAHHA a number of years ago and I fell into posting about it when they stepped down. I find myself needing to step down as the main organizer as well. My attendance can't be guaranteed on a regular basis due to family needs. My step daughter is handicapped and her health has been declining over the past year and it can be difficult to plan weekends away from home. So to keep the Fall MAHHA running smoothly, I need a co-organizer.
Like I said the event pretty much runs itself. The date picks itself. The third weekend in October. The organizers simply remember to reserve the site and the port-a-potties. ABHarris is on the Board of Directors of the Blue Ridge Center and will answer any questions about the new site. Dutch runs the Saturday morning breakfast. We post a sign-up sheet for registration and all activities. The Jacks run the raffle and reimburse anyone who has spent money for the whole group. Hammock Forum members self-organize pre-hikes and activities during the weekend.
The organizers mostly find answers to people questions and post about it online before the event, ask online for volunteers to help with tasks during the event, and meet and greet during the weekend. The online Excel sheet keeps track of everything. We use the template from past years and usually just tweak it each year as necessary.
If anyone can help out, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks!
