Clams & Mussels Night

Number of People: 2
Budget: $0

This activity is self supporting. The budget is Zero. It usually occurs Thursday at around 5:00, outside Newton.

  1. On Saturday, place a sign-up sheet on the writing desk and make announcements to tell people it is there.
  2. Shoalers must sign up by Monday noon.
    • Self Supporting--At this point, determine if enough people have signed up to cover the cost. If not, then do not have the event. The cost for one bushel of clams and one bushel of mussels in 2009 is set at $340-$390. One bushel of clams and one bushel of mussels feeds about 60 people. Check with Conference Services by Sunday to establish the actual price. If it is $390., a charge of $6.50 per person would be the break-even point for doing the event with a single order for 60 people. The price would be variable with the number of participants and the size of the order.
  3. If enough people have signed up, meet with Conference Services on Monday to order food & paper products. They provide everything.
  4. Collect money from shoalers. Give money, once collected, to the Treasurer. Conference Services will bill the conference directly.
  5. Arrange for three (3) helpers to help serve.
Notes from other years:
Be sure that Shoalers understand the charge is for clams/mussels only and: Social Hour refreshments are a separate conribution.
