More than 60 staff members have signed up to, in some way, be a part of the Faculty vs. Staff Kickball Challenge. Staff Senate co-chair Ray Carney told Faculty Senate at last week’s meeting that so far, 30 have signed up to play.
At the same time, eight faculty members had already signed up to play. That number is expected to grow in the coming weeks.
The first Faculty/Staff Kickball Challenge will be April 4, 2013, at 6 p.m. at the UNCG Softball Stadium. It should be a fun way to close out the year – and provide a great opportunity for people to get to know each other a little better.
“Help us get the word out,” Carney asked the senators.
The deadline to sign up is the end of February.
All UNCG faculty received an email about the event – including a link to register – about two weeks ago. All staff members received an email as well.
“This will be a fun event, said John Lepri, chair of the Faculty Senate. He noted the sense of community our faculty and staff have. And he encourage faculty to come and take part in the event.
Faculty may sign up here: https://docs.google.com/a/uncg.edu/spreadsheet/viewform?formkey=dFk0SkwxV3NPbi0tYzNCR0s0bEdnbUE6MQ
You may sign up as:
- Game participant (athlete): someone who plays in the game (teams will have designated kickers and runners for those that may wish them).
- Cheering squad: a group for faculty and a group for staff.
- Event volunteer: to be involved in some aspect of putting the event on.
- Arts/crafts display: Any UNCG faculty or staff who have arts or crafts that they do outside of campus. Anyone interested would have the opportunity to show their work during the hours of the event. This applies to UNCG faculty and staff only.
In conjunction with the “Kickball Challenge,” there will be a “Fill the Truck” donation drive to support the Guilford County Animal Shelter.
