^ I would say that the "point person" just ends up being someone the day of the event that can be in contact with Robb to text photos from the event. In my experiences, there's not really a "team captain" per se. The main focus of a Team TPR at any given park is to just have a great time, make some new friends with fellow TPR members, and support this wonderful cause to help children in need. The coaster riding, to me, has always just been an added bonus!
So I wouldn't worry about having to be a team captain, especially if this is your first time participating in the event.
To clear up your earlier question about the first post still showing that teams need to be created: please keep in mind that while I plan to be very active in this thread to keep it moving and build some Team TPR momentum, I will not necessarily be able to update the team statuses, donation tallies, etc. every single day. (I do have work commitments and a new baby at home, after all!
) All I politely ask is to be patient. Some weeks I may only be able to update that first post once or twice. Other weeks, I may be updating it every other day or so. Bottom line is we are keeping up on things, and the updates will happen. In fact, after this initial surge the last couple days, I'm hoping to have things updated later today.
Thanks to all those who have signed up and gotten some of our teams up and running!! Here's to a tremendous Coasting for Kids season for Team TPR!
