Every year the Dolphins run BBQ and Bakesales during the meets that we host. This helps to cover the cost of ribbons for the meets that we host, a portion of the coaches salaries and incidentals such a team outings and special events, and a portion of the buses we take to
Sections and Finals.
Without a pool it is impossible to host meets so we have resorted to participating in a few Westmount events and running our Baketables at those events. Family Day, even in the cold and rain, was a great success for us: everyone brought abundant baked goods
and we found plenty of hungry customers. St-Jean, this past Monday was moderately successful, however we had less baking and the heat made baked goods seem far less appealing. Even so, we still managed to find lots of hungry people and sold until just before
the start of the Scouts’ BBQ.
On Canada Day we are resuming a tradition we started 2 years ago: the BBQ
and Bakesale during the afternoon Westmount celebrations taking place between
12noon-4pm. This is a very successful event for us but we need every Dolphin member that is in town to be present:
1) We need your baked goods or innovative treats: fruit brochettes on a hot day would be “hot” sellers; candy brochettes would also be popular; slices of watermelon sell out in the sun; creations with marshmallows are mouth-watering! Use your imagination. Of course, cupcakes are always a hit and cookies and squares are too...but if you
are thinking it a tad too hot to bake, think of a no-bake tasty solution.
2) We need you: please sign up every available member of your family to the following
BBQers...adults who love to work the fire...you know who you are!
BBQ assistants...kids or adults who can package up burgers and dogs for distribution
BBQ sales...adults or older kids working the cash
BAKESALE...adults or kids who work the cash and greet customers to the baketable
3) Available Shifts:
10:30-12noon: set up; BBQ prep
11:30-1:30pm: 1st Bakesale shift; 1st BBQ shift
