An   Expense Reimbursement Request Form, included in the packet, is to be filled out and receipts attached.  This is to be given to the State Treasurer and reimbursement of your expenses will be done before the outing or rally is over.

An inventory of the club trailer as of September 30,2007 in also included..  Please use what supplies are available.  At the end of the breakfast or dinner, mark off what you have used and add to the list any unopened leftovers that are going into the trailer and give the update to the Secretary. A new inventory list will be e-mailed each time to the chapter listed for the next outing/rally. 

The Club encourages new menu ideas for breakfast and dinner.  A recommendation of $3.00 per person for breakfast and $5.00 per person for dinner is suggested.

After meals, wash dishes, sweep and mop kitchen floor and take out the kitchen trash as needed.

Return all supplies and equipment to the club trailer, unless needed by the next group.

Parking Placement Forms

Parking Map


            The Chapter assigned for Parking should have at least two members on the grounds on Wednesday before the Spring and Fall outing and Tuesday before the June Rally. Use the parking detail sheets that are in your packet.

Parkers are responsible to place the following signs—two highway signs (Illinois Indian Logo and arrow) at the intersection of Hwy. 49 and the road leading to the Fairgrounds.  One Handicap sign (Logo with handicap emblem) to be placed at the appropriate area.  One Register Here Sign and one WIT Stop Sign to be placed in front of the first road for camping.  Eight Alphabet Signs—used to identify each row for parking.  Orange Flags—used to mark each parking area at the front and back of each site.  Each site is approximately 30 feet wide.  These items are found in the club trailer which will be inside the main building.

Parkers will lead each coach to their respective site and make sure that the coach is parked correctly.  All coaches are to be parked at an angle with driver side of coach approximately 3 feet from the orange flag so that when slide-outs are in the out position they are not beyond the orange flag. If they wish to park without removing tow car, place them in the last row.

Parkers need to keep a record of each coach that comes on the grounds.  The records should include name, WIT number and date of arrival.  Illinois Indians Parking Placement sheet is in your packet to record this information.  The treasurer will make up a list of all pre-registered attendees and will e-mail to the Chapter President before the outing or Rally.  If someone arrives that is not on the list, simply add their name, WIT number and date of arrival to the bottom of the Treasurer’s list.  This list is to be turned into the Treasurer at the end of each day of parking.  The list will be returned before the next day of parking duties.

At the end of the outing or Rally (Sunday), all signs, flags, and canopies (if used during the Rally) should be returned to the club trailer.

            The Local Chapter assigned for Coffee and Drinks are asked to follow these guidelines:

 Coffee pots, coffee, etc. has to be unloaded from the Club trailer.  All the coffee items are in one large container and we would like to keep the items in the same place.  Coffee is to be prepared for Friday morning of Outings and Rally.  The small coffee pot is to be used for water only (for hot tea & hot chocolate). This may be moved up to Wednesday, use your own judgment.   Directions for making coffee are in the duty book.

Keep pots going the entire day. The night before (starting Thursday night) prepare two pots of regular coffee and one pot of decaf coffee.  Prepare the small coffee pot with water for tea.  In the morning (about 6:00a.m.) designate one person to see that all coffee pots are plugged in. Plug two coffee pots into the extension cord and plug the extension cord into the receptacle. Plug the other into a different wall receptacle. Place the drink table under the glass case on the east wall of the main room.

Lemonade and Iced tea are to be prepared for the Outing/ Rally starting Friday. With the water being what it is, lemonade can be kept overnight (not mandatory) but tea must be dumped and remade each day.  Lemonade can be “added to”. This may be moved up to Wednesday, use your own judgment. (We have gallon bags for iced tea) Ice may be purchased at Casey’s or ask the VP to get the ice for you.

All coffee pots / cooler jugs used are to be cleaned inside and out before being placed in the Club trailer after worship services Sunday morning.  All “parts” are to be kept with each pot.  Please do not use our dishtowels to wipe out the inside of the coffee pots, use a paper towel.

            Before placing the supplies back in the large container, update the inventory list of amounts used and give to the Secretary.  Please make sure all coffee supplies go back in the one large container marked for coffee and place back in the trailer.

Weather plays a very important part of this duty please, make the necessary adjustments.
