Through a special partnership with the Navistar LPGA Classic, girls and adults from across the council are invited to volunteer at this prestigious golf tournament, which attracts well-known female golfers from around the country to Prattville's Robert Trent Jones Golf Course.  Girl volunteers, ages 11-17, are needed for Saturday, Sept. 17, and Sunday, Sept. 18, to serve as standard bearers.  Each girl will be paired with a golfer, carry their insignia and will walk the course with them that day.  Since the golfers tee off at different times, beginning around 7 a.m., we will assign each girl to a specific tee time.  Please note that girls are required to be there about an hour prior to the tee off time and will be on the golf course for several hours.
 
Adults are also asked to volunteer.  Some may serve as standard bearers, while others will assist in other duties for Navistar, as assigned.
 
Prior to the event, girls and adults will be asked to attend (in person or via conference call) an hour-long training sometime in August prior to the event.  
 
The price to attend this event is $12 per person. Girl and adult volunteers will receive a Navistar  LPGA Dri-fit T-shirt, special 100th anniversary Girl Scout cap (to be worn at the event...we want them to know you're a Girl Scout!), Navistar baseball cap or visor, five tickets for use during any day of the event, light refreshments while they are working and a commemorative patch.
 
We are only allowed to have 50-60 girls/adults volunteer on Saturday and only 20-30 on Sunday, so be sure to register soon!

Texas_180x365.gifGirl Scouts of the USA's National Convention is coming up in November, and we want our girls to be part of the fun by attending the GS Leadership Institute.  This event, which is just for girls and is part of the convention, will take place in Houston, Texas, on November 9-13, 2011. From ruling the world to space travel - past, present and future, 1200 girls 13 and older will hear from world-renowned leaders and innovators and gain hands-on experience with cutting-edge technology and professionals. Opportunities to market themselves, track products through development and marketing, and connect with Girl Scouts from across the country will abound. Girls will express why they love Girl Scouts and celebrate the movement's 100th birthday.

This event is open to all Senior and Ambassador Girl Scouts in our council's jurisdiction. While official information on hotels, etc., is not available yet from GSUSA, we estimate that the cost to attend this event will be $950 for girls and $1,050 for adults (because their registration fee is higher).  This fee includes airfare, lodging (based on four girls to each room), breakfast and entry fees to the Leadership Institute.  Other meals and expenses will be covered by the attendees. GSSA will provide chaperones for the event, so girls may travel without a parent or guardian.

There are financial assistance funds available from GSUSA for this event, but we do not know yet what the application process will entail. Girls may also use cookie bucks to offset the costs, as well.

If you are interested in attending, please e-mail Karlyn Edmonds.  Please note, we are only allowed by GSUSA to take ten girls to this event, so space is limited.
