Be aware that some events may fill before the register by date. • Only bring those you registered for the event. • Be prepared! Check your confirmation for site address. Note that some GPS may not work in all areas. Refer to a map and bring directions with you. • Directions are posted on the Participate tab of gsofct.org. • Arrive on time. Remember to allow time for walking from the parking lot to the event site. Please respect and help the program facilitator as needed. Adults should take side conversations away from the activities. • Remind the girls that a “thank you” is always appreciated. Looking for More?
