The Board Game Library at CANCON has grown in size every year, and this year is no different. We will have more space, and to match that (very excitingly) we have a lot of interest from folk who were first time participants last year and through word of mouth.

To support the continued smooth running, we need volunteers to help run the library over the three days of CANCON 23-25 January. NOTE: Monday the 23rd is NOT the public holiday this year - that's Tuesday the 26th (time to get your leave in)

Saturday: 0830-1200, 1200-1500, 1500-1800, 1900-2200
Sunday: 0830-1200, 1200-1500, 1500-1800, 1900-2200
Monday: 0830-1200, 1200-1500.

Volunteer Work

Library Admin Support - min 2 per shift
Duties include:
- Checking out games
- Checking in games (cursory check that items have been bagged and returned in good condition)
- Information on:
- Game group signs
- Library games
- Recommendations.

Demo Support - min 2-3 per daytime (0900-1800) shift
Duties include:
- Information on:
- Game group signs

- Demo support of permanently setup games (impact area)
- Demo support within library
- offer of assistance at tables with green sign (want to play a game?)
- demo support of recommended games.

Terry or I will be around during shift changes to provide assistance and give an overview of each role.

We are asking for volunteers as we have a limited ability to compensate people for their efforts. However, we will be able to offer the following.

1 shift: Wrist band for entry to library on day of support
3 shifts: Wrist band for weekend.

If you'd like to help out, please send Terry (Tezza) or I a geekmail with the role you'd like to fill and preferred timings. If interested in a demo role, please provide an indication of the range of games you are comfortable teaching.

We can't guarantee a particular timeslot / role but will endeavour to keep you informed as we produce the roster.

Additionally, setup day is Friday the 22nd - let us know if you're interested/available to assist.

Thanks in advance to anyone considering helping make the Library a success.
