I cannot for the life of me remember if I did or not apply to volunteer... I remember considering it, but can't remember if I filled the form and have yet to receive any sort of information via email.
So, I guess either way it's too late? :P #queenofstoopid

Seat is L33

Hi Sarah,

yes you did thanks, we have you on the list.
Candace is due to contact all the volunteers shortly, though I'm also about to put a final request out for anyone else who wants to sign up first.

Final Call for Volunteers...

Huge thanks to everyone who has already sent in a volunteer form - you will be hearing from Candace very soon.

But there is still time to join the crew for The Homecoming - this is our final call for volunteers, so if you are willing to donate some of your convention time to help the event run smoothly, we would really appreciate it.

As a volunteer you get the full convention experience by helping to make the event a success...and you get a free crew t-shirt too!

What's more as a volunteer you are invited to the last official party of the convention - the newly renamed El Crew Tortilla Wrap Party!

We are going with a Mexican theme for the wrap party so be prepared for food and music to match.
You will be greeted with a complimentary mojito (or soft drink alternative), Mexican style buffet (with Vegan options), Mariachi music playing, a selfie area where you can stand behind Mexican-themed cutouts and more. Plus of course some of our guests are expected to drop by.

Please note, the wrap party is only open to volunteers as our way of saying thank you. You also need to have a convention ticket in order to volunteer.

Submissions for volunteering will close on 31st July so please be sure to get your form into us by then. The form can be accessed here VOLUNTEER

Richard - will the tortillas be made fresh on site?  I mean - store bought just aren't the same. =)

I'm coming along with a couple of friends who aren't volunteering (#BOOOO ), and I'm a first time Gatecon / Vangroovy goer. Is that "final party" happening on the end of the weekend on Sunday evening, or evening after the Bus Tour ? (probably stupid question again (Fryn would be proud  8) ), but I'd rather look stupid and be sure than be arrogant and wrong  ;D  ;D


Also, never "really" ever ate Mexican much, so that'll be a nice discovery #HeresHoping  8)

Hi, I know I WANT to volunteer, but like Sovereign I can't remember if I've already applied. I'm pretty sure I did, probably quite a while ago, but I forgot to write down if I did. My excuse is also a VERY VERY busy year at work... :-D

I can't wait to meet all of you guys, to re-meet past Gatecon friends, and to be in Vancouver again!

I'm pretty sure I volunteered earlier but - just in case - I went ahead and did it again. (I did put mention in the note that it might be a repeat.)

I am pretty sure I volunteered but I don't remember and it may have only been for a couple hours. I may have been non-committal (as far as how much time I could obligate) because I didn't know what to expect and I may be visiting family across the border. If you find yourself short handed during certain times, I will be happy to add additional hours if I am available. If I didn't volunteer, let me know or just add me to the volunteer list. Since this is my first convention and I don't know anyone, I know this will be the best way to meet people.
Thanks!

Sovereign, one of my teachers once told me that the only "stupid" questions are the ones you DON"T ask.   :) :) :)
