Weekly - Nov. 25

Thanksgiving The Seattle Tours Management Team wishes all of you a safe and meaningful Thanksgiving. We still have a need for volunteers who want to serve the homeless at Cafe Amore on Thanksgiving at 11 AM. Even if you can only give a few hours, please let us know. Right now the list from Seattle Tours is:
  • Dan, Alice, Peter and Ben
  • Mark and Susie Weber
  • Steve Powell
  • Jean Marc Gauthier
I also posted the invite for my main group on (Whim Tours in Seattle) and 20 volunteers have RSVPed back their "Yes". There is a big article in Section 2 of the Post Intelligencer on Thanksgiving day about chef Sean Langan's history and motivations. We even got mentioned ... somewhat. We'll be using one of our coaches to also transport food to several parks throughout Seattle. Sounds like a fun core group! Join us if you can give an hour or five. Want Extra (Paid) Hours? If you are looking for extra hours, consider lending your energies to buffing the coaches. Mark Weber is heading up this effort and has big plans to work through our entire fleet this winter. This detailing of the outside and inside will make us that much more presentable, and can help us to stand out even more than we do already from the other tour companies. But he needs help! Contact Mark by phone or email ( Our fleet is going to be AMAZING come March 1st. Review of Driving Record Liz is heading up a review of our Audit process: coach records, driver's records, etc. This year we are doing a internal audit, not a real one by the State, to insure that our records are in order and our procedures effective. If you come into the office for a tour, you'll see a Violation and Review Record form to complete; if you are not scheduled to come in until next spring, you will be receiving a form in the mail. Please fill this out conscientiously and thoroughly and return it promptly. Remember that when you do get a moving violation on or off the job, you must inform us immediately. And of course, stay on top of your anniversary dates for your driver's license and medical card. Mail or bring us a copy when you renew these documents. Outlet Casino Shuttle As you can see on the schedule there are lots of openings for this Shuttle after Dec. 2nd. It will probably take awhile before we run these consistently every day, but sign up for one on a day you don't have another tour scheduled. Be sure to call in that morning to check on status. Call: 7:30 AM; Spot time: 8:30 AM.
