Scouts and Ushering
Early Saturday morning, earlier than any 11-18 year kid cared to be up, we met our ride to the stadium and found the right door to enter. Upon meetng the Scout Adult leaders in charge of the ushering we were trained, or paired up and assigned our area. Our charge was to help everyone find their seats. Obviously there were hundreds of us if that were to be accomplished. It seemed an overwhelming task for each of us assigned to one of the aisles leading into the stadium. But many allowed us to help them find the seats. So we felt most important at a young age for getting everyone in there in time for the game. During the game our job was to be watching for anyone needing emergency help. This occurred every so often in various sections. Of course we could watch the game to some degree as long as we didn't block anyone's view. After the game we would do a quick sweep for lost items from the top to bottom of all the seating areas. Memories of a long day, a great feeling of worth, and some tired feet by the time we got home. Of course there were a few games when the rain and snow just about did us in. Hopefully my memory is right in saying that the Gophers won those games.
