Opportunities to Help
Would you like to get a peek inside the Scotland Tour rehearsal process? Do you have free time during the day this week? Thank you for considering the opportunities linked below! We appreciate your help!
Tour Wardrobe
Tour wardrobe will be ready for pick up immediately following rehearsal on Tuesday afternoon (that's tomorrow!). Please plan to go directly from Orchard Ridge UCC to Westgate to pick up your wardrobe.

Everything inside the garment bag (and including the garment bag), needs to be packed in your Scotland suitcase.

Labeling Tour Wardrobe
In preparation for potentially being laundered, please label your tour T-shirts, polos, and Old Navy items with a permanent marker. Include first initial and last name along with your family group number on each item near or on the label. (Your family group number is listed on the Family and Flight Groups handout linked below.)

Luggage Tag
Please attach the bright yellow luggage tag to the bag you are checking and complete the label with your singer's full name and home address.

We are very close to being done! If you have the skill and the time in the next day to stop by the office, pick up a dress (or two, or 11), complete the hemming job and return to us ASAP, we would be most grateful. Please contact Alyssa with any questions.
Consent to Travel Forms
Your singer's original Consent to Travel form will also be ready to be picked up tomorrow after rehearsal. This form needs to be carried by each minor passenger on our travel days. Please keep it with your passport!
