Float Lieutenants

Float Lieutenants Rules & Regulations

There will be two lieutenants for each float, these two people will be of equal stature and work together to insure the rules and regulations of the Krewe of Selene are followed and enforced.

In order to secure your own individual float you must have a minimum of 25 paid members (all dues to be paid in full no later than July 9th of the current year.)

If you do not have the 25 paid membership minimum by July 1st, the Krewe will have the right to combine floats. At that point, if any floats are combined, only one float lieutenant from each combined group will be considered the Lieutenant for that combined float.
