Hi everyone, I hope you're all excited for PonyCon 2017!
As you all know PonyCon relies on the generously donated time of volunteers to help run the busy time table we have planned for you. This is your opportunity to get involved and help us out!
Yes, VOLUNTEER APPLICATIONS are now open!
Now some general information first.
1) All volunteers should hold an appropriate ticket for the day they want to volunteer on.
2) Ideally volunteers should be 16 and over and those under 18 will need a chaperone with them. Younger people wishing to volunteer will be dealt with on a case by case basis.
3) You won't be working the whole time you're at the con, we want you to be able to enjoy it as much as everyone else.
4) Volunteering opportunities range from helping with events, running merchandise stalls, errand running and various other jobs so if you are particularly interested in something then do say so but we can't make any promises that that is what you will be doing. Equally, if there is something really don't want to do, let us know. Again, we can't promise anything, but we will do our best.
Those wishing to apply should email us here at firstname.lastname@example.org with you ticket order number and a short piece about why you'd like to volunteer with us and what you might like to do. If you have any further questions before applying do let us know as well and we will answer as soon as possible.
In order that we can get everything organised in time, we would like to say that we'd like all volunteer applications to be with us by the end of August.
I would honestly love to help, I just am very very young ^-^"
12 years won't cut it, right? I mean I would probably only do simle things such as helping with the merchandise stalls, with which I do have some experience from our family backery, where I also help selling the bread and pasteries.
Even if, would it be possible to get a shaperone that isn't someone you go to the con with? Like, if I where to help with tthe merch, that someone from the Committee already helping there could shaperone me?
I've mentioned this on a different thread, but since I'm planning to set up a display item on Friday afternoon/evening, I would like to offer my services volunteering to help set up the con as well. Unfortunately I know it is past the deadline for officially applying to be a volunteer (I just didn't know what my plans were that early). However since volunteering was still encouraged in the "Important things to remember for Ponycon 2017" thread, I thought it worth posting here anyway.
Would it be advisable for me to email the address mentioned above, to confirm my interest?
