FAQs about this fundraiser for participating athletes:

Q • Where & When can I get coupon books to sell?

Pick ups can be done at cross country practices at Clearbrook Park on Tues, Thurs or Sat.  Ordering can be done with Naomi Booth via email [email protected]

Q • How do I keep track of sales?

A • Athletes will be given an envelope containing a copy of the book and an order form.  The form will be your record. 

Q • What payment methods can customers use?

A • Payments can be made by cash or cheque made payable to the “Valley Royals Track & Field Club”

Q • What’s the deadline for this Fundraiser?

A • This Valley Royals Fundraiser ends Thursday, October 1st, 2020

Q • Where do I return my fundraising earnings and unsold books?

A • All unsold books and payments collected need to be returned to Naomi Booth.

Q • Who can I contact if I have questions?

A • Naomi Booth email: [email protected]

Q • Will I earn Fundraising Credits on profits earned for the club?

A • Normally, the club gives fundraising credits to athletes which they can spend on meet entry fees. However, due to Covid, there’s a lack of meets so entry fees are not needed and volunteer hours are harder to get. Instead, just for 2020, athletes can earn 1 VOLUNTEER HOUR for every $20 IN PROFIT they gain for the club in a fundraiser.

Here’s how this would work for Coupon Book Sales:

The club gets $20 profit on the sale of 4 coupon books ($5 profit on each one)

So selling 4 books = 1 volunteer hour
