Default HELP! We need somebod(ies) v. Calling all volunteers!

Hello. You may not think you know me, since I'm not on the forums much (ever), but if you were at Fest 2012 or 2013 (or New Year's at Ho5G the last few years), then you've seen me running around doing event-organizing-stuff. And that is why I am starting this thread in search of helpers.

Planning and putting on Fest each year takes a lot of help from a lot of people. We tend to get some help once we're there, but we'd really like to know how many helpers we're going to have in advance. When we get last-minute volunteers, we don't always have something for them to do right then; if we're expecting you, we'll have something for you to do, and thereís a better chance it will be something youíll enjoy doing.

Reasons to sign up to volunteer in advance include:
  • There is a better chance to match people to the jobs they'd be good at/enjoy doing.
  • Pretty much every job is open right now, so you can pick whatever you want to do!
  • Volunteers who sign up in advance may be able to get a free t-shirt.
  • Volunteering is another way to get raffle tickets this year. Each job you take on earns you more tickets.
  • You can tell your friends exactly where and when to find you (even better, get them to sign up with you!)
If youíre worried that by helping out youíll miss out on the fun, donít worry! Helping out behind the information, merchandise, or TDIClub central tent tables is a great way to get to see just about everyone. Being the bouncer for an event means youíll get to greet everyone as they come in and still be a part of the event. If you can give just a couple hours a day to helping make Fest go, it will be greatly appreciated.

And please donít think that you canít volunteer if youíre new to the club or to Fest. Helping out behind the scenes is a great way to get to know a lot of people very quickly. And it really is fun.

Below I have listed some of the things we need help with on each day. This is by no means a complete list, but it should give you a good idea of what kind of help we are requesting. Please take a look at it and pick where and when youíd like to help out. You can reply here or send a PM to me to sign up or get more information.

Thank you in advance for signing up to help make this Fest the best one yet!
