Ready...Set...WAIT!!!

Before we can start registration for BGG.CON 2012, we are announcing a new team of volunteers for the convention:

TEAM GEEK

If you feel that you just don’t get enough of that great "con feeling" by simply hanging out, playing games and helping every once in a while, then we’ve got the team for you. Team Geek members will be required to attend a Tuesday, November 13th orientation from 7 - 9 pm and help cover opening registration (aka THE RUSH) from 8am - noon on Wednesday. Additionally, on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, each Team Geek member will be assigned a four-hour shift to cover (edit: to clarify, four hours each day).

What will Team Geek members be doing? A little bit of everything:
*Assisting with registration
*Covering library shifts in case of missing library volunteers
*Supporting various events
*Running around everywhere...
*And whatever else we might think up

So what, you may ask, do you get in exchange for your 18 hours of slave labor help?
*Free convention registration for each Team Geek member
*Guaranteed opportunity to buy a ticket for your significant other
*Your own, personalized Team Geek jersey (oooooooh!)
*Access to the pre-convention party (aka Tuesday Orientation from 7 to 9pm)

If you are interested, please go to the application and read the fine print carefully. If you are still interested, complete the questions on the form and submit it in before Sunday, March 4th at midnight CST. It will take us a week or so to review the applications and get back to everyone.

NOTE: The Convention Committee will review all applications the week of March 5th, and will let each applicant know if they were selected to be on Team Geek prior to making BGG.CON tickets are available to the general public.

Done and done.

Assuming your Team Geek time slot doesn't conflict, would you still be eligible to participate in the Puzzle Hunt (and/or other tournaments)?

I'll risk being "that guy" and ask blush... Could that significant other be a father, brother, cousin, or friend that looks like they might be related? I just, don't, think, my primary significant other would be that excited about it and a guaranteed wing-man would be nice. Not a deal breaker or anything.

Ok, no more questions... pick me... please.

I'm sure if you claim your dad to be your SO, they'd allow it...as well as laugh behind your back.

There are a lot of intangible benefits to volunteering. Some very tangible. I volunteer for Origis and GenCon (for a vendor, not the covention itself) here in the States and it's been one of the most enjoyable things I've done at a convention. Besids, it you don't have to pay thatr $60-$80 for your badges, that's a very real benefit.

The extra night in the room will make up for not having the convention cost.

YAY for volunteers who keep this Con feeling like a community of friends, instead of a big corporate event with paid flunkies who don't care about the "feel" of the event!

Maybe join Occupy BGG? Tents are always cheap. Well, until the big guys come and toss you out of the park.

I got in everyone's hostile little face. Yes, these are wooden cubes from boardgaming. Yes, I'm comfortable with that. I am enlightened.

I'll take his jersey. If he's not going to use it. Just sayin'...
