Training for contingent monitors for the SF LGBT Pride parade is about to start. Since we'll have a car in our contingent carrying LP VP Nominee Wayne Allyn Root, we are required to have a minimum of six trained contingent monitors present at the parade on Sunday, June 29.
Monitor training does not carry over from year to year, so some of us have attended a half dozen or more of these training sessions. It's not difficult, but it is vital to us having a presence in the Pride Parade.
The schedule for the training sessions is below. If you can attend one and serve as a monitor on the 29th, please let me know at chair@... or chair@....
Here is a starting list of locations for Contingent Monitor trainings. I
urge you NOT to wait until the last one on Friday, June 27th, as it gets
very overcrowded and we do turn people away. You do not want to take that
You do NOT need to RSVP nor sign up anywhere for these trainings... Just
make sure you arrive early enough to secure a seat.
We'll be updating the list for trainings as more dates are confirmed -- we
have about 3-4 more in the pending and a couple more in the process. Go to
www.sfpride.org, click on the parade tab at the top, and select Contingent
Those contigents from out-of-town, contact me directly about a special
training set up for you, not on the list below or the web site.
Confirmation packets will be delivered electronically this week.
