Volunteers & Entertainment Needed For The Brewers Mini & 10K!

If you’re interested in participating in the Brewers Mini-Marathon +10K, but not necessarily by running, we’ve got some great options for you!

The 13.1 mile half-marathon and 10K, beginning and ending at Miller Park on Saturday, September 20th will take over 750 volunteers to ensure that all participants have a safe and fun experience.

I talked with Tai Pauls, Manager of Special Events for Brewers Enterprises and she told me that they are in need of volunteers in a variety of locations and would welcome anyone to join them.

There are two ways to volunteer:

EVENT CREW VOLUNTEERS

Brewers Enterprises is looking for people who want to be a part of the Brewers Mini +  10K Event Crew. You can volunteer as an individual or as a group. [Note: Since proceeds from the race go to the MACC Fun, this is also a great opportunity for a community service project!]

Individuals are needed to help out in a variety of areas including at packet pick-up, the full gear check area, at the start & finish line, as course marshals, as part of the bike team leading the race, or at the post-race tailgate party. All individual shifts & jobs can be selected on the volunteer page of the race website.

Volunteer Groups are also extremely important to help man the various Aid Stations along the course and they are still looking for groups to join them. At the Aid Stations, groups will assist in distributing water to the runners and lend some moral support to runners like John and me by cheering us on the way. Tai encourages groups to embrace their stations and make them their own by displaying team/organization/company banners, colors, etc.  Other areas where groups can possibly be utilized are at the finish line, race results tents or packet pick-up the day before the event.

Last year, sororities, charitable groups, school groups and local companies who manned their stations were integral to the race’s success.

ENTERTAINMENT VOLUNTEERS

In addition to keeping things organized and safe for the runners, Tai’s goal is to make sure that we have an extremely fun and enjoyable experience.

To do this, they are seeking a variety of entertainment acts stationed along the course to entertain the runners. We have some great acts lined up already, but we’re always looking for family friendly entertainers, cheer groups, and bands to perform for participants and spectators on the course.

Entertainment groups are considered volunteers as well, but will receive great exposure and promotion as a Brewers Mini +10K entertainment act.  All bands, groups, etc. will be listed with logo and/or name on www.brewersmini.com and will be included in the email correspondence to all runners.

So, what’s in it for you?

In addition to being a part of this unique event, all volunteers and entertainers will receive:

  • An official Event Crew t-shirt
  • A ticket voucher good for a regular season game in April/May of 2015

Depending on the volunteer assignment, the timeframe for race day on Saturday, September 20, is approximately 6am-11:30am (some jobs start later or end earlier). More information can be found on the sites below.

Event Crew Volunteer info – http://www.race-brewers.com/volunteers-2013

Entertainment Volunteer info – http://www.race-brewers.com/entertainment

If you’re running the race and/or can’t volunteer yourself, please pass this along to anyone you know who might be interested in helping out. It is sure to be a fun day for runners and volunteers alike!

Thanks in advance for your assistance, we look forward to seeing you on September 20!

A favorite in Pittsburgh, this sandwich includes pan-fried spicy capicola and genoa salami piled high and topped with provolone cheese.  It is topped with tomatoes, zesty coleslaw and fresh-cut fries and served on a fresh Italian bread.

This is the first time this sandwich has been featured and it is a classic.  The sandwich is $10.25 and will be sure to fill you up.

Also available is the always popular Spaghetti-in-a-Meatball. That is $9.50.

The Double Clutch stand is on the Loge Level outside section 215 (on the first base side of the press box).

Enjoy!

Brewers Extend Player Development Contract with Rookie Helena Brewers

The Milwaukee Brewers have announced a four-year player development contract extension with the Rookie Helena Brewers of the Pioneer League through the 2018 season.

“Our affiliation with the Helena Brewers has been very positive and we’re excited to extend our player development contract with the franchise,” said Brewers Vice President – Assistant General Manager Gord Ash. “Many players on our big league roster started their professional careers at Helena, where they developed and honed their skills to play at the Major League level.”

Ryan Braun, Khris Davis, Mike Fiers, Jonathan Lucroy, Jimmy Nelson and Tyler Thornburg each began their professional baseball careers with the Helena Brewers. Wily Peralta played the majority of the 2008 season at Helena.

“The Brewers have been flexible and appreciative of the efforts that we make, and I believe that the long relationship over the years has made this the best partnership it has ever been,” said Helena Brewers President/General Manager Paul Fetz. “We know each other, we know what to expect and we work well together. There is a mutual respect. When I went to Spring Training a few years ago I really felt a part of the organization. I wasn’t just some executive from the outside.”

Last season, Helena advanced to the Pioneer League championship and finished a win away from claiming the league title, dropping a best-of-three series to Idaho Falls. Helena won the Pioneer League title in 2010, the franchise’s first championship since 1996 (won back-to-back championships as a Brewers affiliate from 1995-96).

The Helena Brewers are located in Helena, Montana and have been a Brewers rookie affiliate since the 2003 season. Helena was also a Milwaukee farm team from 1985 through 2000.

Lyle Overbay Serves as Official Ambassador for Ronald McDonald House Charities Eastern Wisconsin

Today, Lyle Overbay and Ronald McDonald House Charities Eastern Wisconsin (RMHC) donors came together for a milestone event at the Ronald McDonald House in Wauwatosa.

RMHC is in the final stages of an expansion project that will nearly double the size of the existing House with an additional 32 guest rooms, as well as a fitness center, music room and expanded dining facilities. Through July 2014, the campaign has raised $8.4 million toward a financial need of more than $10 million and today, RMHC was excited to announce that Lyle Overbay will serve as the official ambassador for the “home stretch” of the capital campaign to expand.

In honor of his number, RMHC will be counting down to the last 24 days of construction and the completion of the expansion project.

Brewers Community Foundation is a longtime partner of RMHC with support from other players including Robin Yount, Prince Fielder, Randy Wolf as well as the Brewers wives. For the last two years, RMHC has been the recipient of the Stolen Bases Happy Faces campaign in coordination with Northwestern Mutual Foundation.

Jean Segura Trades Places With Southwest Airlines

Today at Milwaukee’s General Mitchell International Airport, Jean Segura  took on some unusual jobs as he Traded Places with a crew from Southwest Airlines, the Club’s official airline.

Southwest Airlines invited Jean, along with Bernie Brewer and the Klement’s Famous Racing Sausages, to surprise some unsuspecting customers as Jean did everything that Southwest employees do on a daily basis.  Marshal in planes, ride a tug, make boarding announcements and take boarding passes–it was all a part of the special event.  It was great to see the look on the faces of passengers and airport workers when walking through the terminal with Jean and the mascots–and some of the reaction afterward on social media (I’m sure there will be more when they land!).
