We Need Volunteers!

Every successful event relies heavily on their volunteers. Wars of the Roses needs your help! Here are some things we'll need:
  • Set-up Crew - We will need lots of hands to help set up tents, signs, and other things around the Wars of the Roses site on Thursday evening and Friday morning. Contact either Event Steward directly to volunteer for this. 
  • Gate - Each shift is 2 hours. It is best if we can have at least 2 people for each shift, particularly during the busy times later Friday and Saturday morning. The only requirements are that you be an SCA member and be at least 18 years old (and preferably that you can handle money and write fairly legibly). Volunteering at Gate is a great way to meet people and see your friends when they arrive at the site. Sign up for as many shifts as you would like here: http://doodle.com/poll/ar6w75zf6eywn23d
  • Minions - Minions are around to assist the Event Steward with on-site tasks including, but not limited to, getting messages to someone, taking a thing somewhere, making sure the Event Steward drinks water, finding a lost parent, general schmoozing and meeting cool people. All shifts are 1 hour shifts. Feel free to sign up for as many as you'd like here: http://doodle.com/poll/6729ga8gb6mifzrp
  • Tear-down Crew - We will need many hands for tear-down, as well. We know everyone wants to be done and go home after a long weekend. But so do the Event Stewards. The more hands that help with tear-down, the faster everyone gets home.  Contact either Event Steward directly to volunteer for this. 
If you're interested in helping please use the links provided to sign up. We thank you in advance for helping to make this event a successful one!
