GUIDELINES FOR USE OF BLOCK PARTY TRAILER

 
Owned by the Twin Rivers Baptist Association
 
 

The Twin Rivers Baptist Association Block Party Trailer is available to associational organizations and churches at a deposit of $200.00. The trailers are for local events only. If you are considering using it for a mission trip, please contact us so we can see if there is a resource in the area you will be in to use or see what accommodations we can make to help you.

The reservation of the trailer will not be complete until the deposit AND this application are both received. Once this is accomplished you will receive an email confirmation that your event is on the calendar.

Please understand that the event will be placed on the calendar only after it is determined that the church is eligible for the rental, the $200 fee is received by TRBA, and this application is received by TRBA.

A church may request the use of the Block Party Trailer for no more than two dates at a time.  If the church needs the Block Party Trailer more than two times in a year, they must wait and make a new request for use within 30 days of the next event.  This policy will allow more of our churches to take advantage of this great ministry.  The trailer will be available to Twin Rivers Baptist Churches who are faithful financial supporters of the association.

Upon the return of the BP Trailer and approval of the inventory list, the $100 deposit will be returned within the next month. The remaining $100.00 will be placed into the Block Party Trailer Designated Fund Budget to be used for the upkeep of the equipment and supplies.

Requests for use of the trailer should be made through the application form on the Website (contact Associational Ministry Assistant with any questions 636-745-9777) at least two weeks in advance of the event.

The person making the request to reserve the trailer be advised:
Groups are responsible for transporting the trailer to the location of the event. A 2-inch receiver is required to tow.
Groups are responsible for returning the trailer to Twin Rivers Baptist Association lot the day agreed upon.
The person responsible for reserving the use of the trailer will need to make arrangements for a time to pick up the trailer.  Arrangements for pick up and drop off need to be made at least 2 weeks prior to the event.

The group using the Block Party Trailer is asked to appoint one person to be responsible for both unloading and reloading the items in the trailer. This person should pay close attention, when unloading, as to how each item is placed so that he/she can make sure everything is put back in order. This insures that during travel the items remain in place.

The best ways to SECURE the Block Party Trailer at you location are:
Park it so that the back door is one foot or less from the building.
Park it under a light in the parking lot with the Block Party Trailer’s back door up against the light pole.
Park your van or car at the back of the Block Party Trailer.
Pick up the Block Party Trailer from the Twin Rivers Baptist Association on the day agreed upon. Take the Block Party Trailer to your home and park it with the back door facing away from the street.

Use of these methods will help ensure the safety of the Block Party Trailer and all items.
 
 
 The Block Party Trailer is used by many churches each month.
