  1. Tagging

The key to acquiring a lot of donations is to ASK EVERYONE!

“Good Morning Sir/Ma’am, would you like to help support the

 Saint John Amateur Speed Skating Club?”

Members of the public may decline your request, but the more you ask, the more donations you may receive.

*BE CLEAR, CONCISE, AND LOUD. You may only have a few seconds to interact with someone walking past you.

*BE POLITE AND COURTEOUS. Even if someone declines your request, say “thank you” or “have a nice day”, some people may return to donate after noticing how polite you are.

* LOOK GOOD. Don’t slouch, chew gum, laugh with your buddy, lean against a wall, play with your collection box, speak inappropriately.

*Ensure your UNIFORM LOOKS GOOD as well.

Additionally, don’t spend long periods of time on break away from your tagging post. The longer you are out collecting money, the more we can raise.

Tagging places, dates and times are available for sign up.

Contact Rachel (rachel.haslett@gmail.com or text 506-651-1273) for signing up to tag.

Also notify Rachel if you cannot make your tagging time.

Tagging Schedule

Tagging -Guidelines, pointers & how do you do it?? (Please Read ever if you have tagged before)

Each skater participant receives credit for the total amount collected divided evenly among the participants.  A dollar per hour amount is calculated and assigned to each skater participant.  This credit will not be available until ALL tagging has been completed.
