2019 Volunteer Sign-ups!

Welcome to another year of Campfire Tails! My name is Favlaud, the volunteer coordinator, and I’m happy to work with everyone!

For those of you unfamiliar with the way the system works (and there are always tweaks), I hope this thread and the ones linked herein can give you a better idea of what volunteering for CFT brings.

Of course, if there are any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me either here in PM, or at favlaud@campfiretails.org ! Doesn’t matter what your question is about, I’ll do my best to answer it.

I want to make sure that everyone willing to volunteer their time and energy gets what they hope for out of it while helping out a great cause for all attendees. Positions will be filled on a first-come, first-serve basis, and I’ll be updating this thread regularly as people claim shifts and jobs.

Gentle reminder that all volunteers that work at least 7 hours are guaranteed a 50%-off base attendance fee credit and a slot in next year’s pre-registration (2020). Kitchen and Construction volunteers also receive a +1 pre-registration token that they can give to anyone.

Please keep in mind that you need to already be registered to be able to volunteer!

With that, here are the categories where people can help out!

Setup
Construction manager = @Intruder
Construction crews to help set up the facilities for the convention are absolutely vital, and often understaffed! If you have the physical ability to lift, carry, and go wherever needs help the most, this spot’s for you!
Requirements are to be at camp as early as noon on Wednesday, July 31, and no later than 2 PM! Distribution of fire-wood will be a big job at this time, and anyone with a truck will be invaluable in moving infrastructure.

Breakdown
Coordinator = @Intruder
The opposite, of course, of setup! These people are the ones making sure everyone gets home on time and everything’s put away snugly for next year. The required times are Monday morning, August 5, and a second time on Tuesday morning, August 6.

@Xander_Frost and @Kilo
Two volunteers needed to help distribute swag!

Kitchen
Chef de cuisine = @Beauchamp , @x_panther
This year, volunteering for the kitchen will work a little differently than in the past. For the start of breakfast prep, to the end of dinner clean-up, the kitchen will be staffed and working!

The day will be divided into three shifts -
1st shift: 08:30AM-11:30AM
2nd shift: 12:00PM-03:00PM
3rd shift: 03:30PM-06:30PM

During the shifts, you’ll be expected to work on a variety of tasks, including prepping ingredients with knives and mandolins, cooking and grilling, serving, as well as dish washing and clean-up. If there’s something you’re unfamiliar with, don’t worry! Part of the fun is learning new skills you can use at home, and we are happy to teach! Since kitchen shifts are limited to 5 people per, and how Kitchen hours add up, shifts are limited to two per individual. Be mindful what kind of cooking you’d like to do and when!

Gofurs
Coordinator = @Favlaud
This is where the big change from last year will be! The people that apply for this job will work with me on a half-day shift, morning or afternoon, and will be my go-to hands when something pops up. Checking trash cans, restocking facilities, and general handiness are what’s needed most. And the best part? You’ll get radios!

Finally, why would you volunteer (besides being awesome and helping from your kindness)? Volunteer credits! Please take a look at @Koinu ‘s post regarding rewards and benefits for your time, seen here:

Everyone must register to help out!
Whether that means signing up ahead of time (in this thread), or a spur of the moment assist while at camp, please make sure that I or another staff member get your registered name/handle down. As much as we appreciate people giving what they can, if your name doesn’t get noted, you won’t earn anything toward that credit you might’ve earned. We want to avoid that whenever possible, so bookkeeping is key.

Let’s have fun!
