Update 10/26/11 - 3 Weeks til CON! - We are so close - but still need more help. If we do not fill the slots, we may have to reschedule times for Helper #3 or potentially close the library (I know, a little drastic, but did I get your attention? )

For those of you waiting for the BGG.CON Schedule to be posted so you can sign up for Library times, See HERE.

Still plenty of slots open for Friday and Saturday. Please fill in helper #1 & #2 FIRST.



Time to sign up for volunteering in the BGG.CON Library.

Step 1: Check the wiki page to see slots available.
BGG_CON_2011_Library_Volunteers

Step 2: Click "Edit" at the top of the wiki page and fill in your name and BGG username under the appropriate time slot

For example:
Quote:

!Wednesday, Nov 16
!Helper #1
!Helper #2
!Helper #3
|-
|10am-11am
| Kristine Anderson ([username = Kristine]) with no spaces on either side of the "=" sign
|
|
|-
|11am-12pm
| Kristine Anderson ([username = Kristine]) with no spaces on either side of the "=" sign
|
|


Then click SAVE at the bottom of the page. If you do not click Save, you just lost your spot.

Step 3: Look for a geekmail in early November with software instructions.

Step 4: Show up and have fun.


Notes:

Library will be open:
Wednesday (11/16) 10:00 a.m. - 1:00 a.m. (yes, after midnight)
Thursday (11/17) 8:00 a.m. - 1:00 a.m.
Friday (11/18) 8:00 a.m. - 1:00 a.m.
Saturday (11/19) 8:00 a.m. - 1:00 a.m.
Sunday (11/20) 8:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. (Mid-day)

I am looking for 2-3 people per time slot. Two people will run the check-in/check-out and the third will help to straighten games on the shelves, replace missing parts, etc.

Only those who have been to BGG.CON before should sign up. First-timers have many more fantastic things to experience at the CON, so the awesomeness of helping in the Library can come next year.

The BGG.CON Library is the pride and joy of BGG.CON and it's all made possible with your help.

Thank you,
Kristine

I wish I were going to be able to make it this year. Some of the most fun I had last year was while I was working in the library.

How about a free promo of your choice for signing up surprise

And then maybe 2 free promos for signing up and then actually showing up for your timeslot whistle

That free promo is the warm feeling you get when you do something to help out the guys that are killing themselves to throw us a huge 5 day party that they have to work through.

The second promo is getting to participate in all the fun with all of the new friends you have made while working the library, during the time you aren't working the library.

And trust me. You'll have enough fun working the library that you won't need a free promo. But bonus treats (nom nom nom) have been known to show up for the library volunteers.

Just sayin'

Getting stuff for your work kinda defeats the purpose of volunteering, doesn't it? Granted, I have received something every year I have volunteered.

It is actually quite fun to work in the library and the time flies.

Re: BGG.CON Library Volunteers - Please Sign Up Now
Just as a note for those who are considering volunteering for library duty, I've always really enjoyed it.

Being thrown together with your fellow volunteers for an hour is a fun, easy way to hang out for a bit with a fellow BGGer that you might not otherwise have met.

Checking people out, you get to see lots of "faces behind the avatar" and also an opportunity to see what games people are getting and enjoying.

For me, it's always been a really positive experience -- I'd happily volunteer without the addition of any BGG bling (though it's always welcome, lol) -- and I'm looking forward to doing it again this year!

I agree!

My first year, I was nervous about volunteering, so I volunteered for 1 hour. It turned out to be great fun.

This year I have doubled my hours. Hmmm, if I keep on doubling them, in a few years, it will only be me in the library! Better get on my good side now

I definitely agree with those sentiments. It's also a great time to get a bit of "down time" from brain burny games and constantly being on the go. You get to relax, chat a bit, help people out, it's a great time.

Re: BGG.CON Library Volunteers - Please Sign Up Now
I'm local and would love to offer some help, but I missed my opportunity to grab a pass before they sold out. Would I be able to help despite not have a ticket? Also would volunteering for maybe a few shifts allow me admittance to the rest of the CON?

Would love to help out, and I live in DFW, but I didn't make the ticket list. Let me know if I can help out in spite of not going to the rest of the Con.

Thanks,

Kyle

According to CaptainQwyx:

I'll get a schedule up pretty soon. For the most part it will be just like last year, and I'm sure you can find a link to it somewhere around here. For that matter I'm sure I can find a link to it somewhere around here:

BGG.CON 2010 Official Schedule

Don't hold me to this though, I'm sure there will be some changes. Off the top of my head:
- likely no Photo Synthesis this year
- Battling Tops will move. late Friday evening?
- Tichu tournament will be same format, but over two days - round-robin groups first day (Thursday?), single-elim brackets second day (Friday?).


I hope that helps,
