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
  • Runners -- take result sheets from the judges to accounting and to the results board
  • Awards -- hand out medals and ribbons
  • Practice Ice -- sign up skaters for practice times
  • Hospitality -- help keep the judges happy with good food and warm drinks
  • Flower Sales -- every skater loves the attention of flowers!
  • Clean-up -- after another successful competition
