2023 Volunteer Sign-ups!

Welcome to another year of Campfire Tails! My name is Favlaud, the chairperson and volunteer coordinator, and with our new volunteer staff, @Gully @meditation_dawn, and @beansyboi we’re here to help you to help make this event happen!

First and foremost, if you want to volunteer, please post in this thread with what shifts and tasks you’d like to do. Centralization of these requests is very helpful, rather than disparate messages over other services and ways to contact us.

For those of you unfamiliar with the way the system works (and there are always tweaks), I hope this resource, and the others linked here, 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. If you have questions maybe not strictly related to volunteering, reach out to info@campfiretails.org and we’ll get you to where you need to be.

We 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 positions.

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!

This year, the Go-Fur volunteers will largely be home-based in the Aid Station. Helping out the other volunteers focused around assisting your fellow campers, we hope to maximize your hours to help out tasks wherever they may appear in a supplied, central location.

If you want more information, and want to work more hands-on in the safety area, please reach out to @Roken (preferably on Telegram or Discord)

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, August 16, and no later than 2 PM! This year we are doing things a little differently, renting two smaller U-haul trucks instead of one bigger one. We hope this means we can get setup done even faster than before!

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. Monday, August 21 is when we are planning for pack-out, where we will again be renting two smaller trucks to maximize the efficiency.

Specially this year, we’re looking for a crew of 3-4 to focus purely on the kitchen for deep cleaning and packing. If this task in particular interests you, please say so!

Chef de cuisine = @Beauchamp , @x_panther
From the start of breakfast prep, to the end of dinner clean-up, the kitchen will be staffed and working! The field kitchen is what brings so many of us together with fond memories, make this part of your day-to-day and help make that nostalgia possible!

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!

As mentioned before, in an effort to streamline and centralize our helpers for everyone’s benefit, people who sign up to be go-furs will spend their time (when not otherwise doing duties) at the Aid Station, where other volunteers will be helping out anyone who might need it.

The people that apply for this job will work with us on a half-day shift, morning or afternoon, and will be our 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 our new page detailing the benefits you get from donating your time to the convention!

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 record-keeping is key. Be sure to check in with any one of us, especially yours truly, at the start and end of each shift, if at all possible.

Let’s have fun!
