I say this every year, but it's really true -- one of my most favorite parts of every Wincon is working the registration table. No, no, really! I'm totally serious. Stick with me here for a second.
I love getting to hug people the second they walk in the door. I love getting to match names and faces. I love getting to meet people I've fangirled online but never met in-person. I love getting to squee all over old friends that I only see once a year. When I didn't know anyone in fandom, this is how I met people. I love getting to participate in making the con happen. I like being involved.
And now, you guessed it, I'm recruiting volunteers for both registration and to hang out in the Roadhouse. Are you interested? Just comment below for an hour or two (or three or four) and I'll add you to the masterlist. We need two people per slot, please.
These are easy and fun jobs. At registration, volunteers will check people in, give them their con packets, and love on the fangirls. You'll have lots of help and support, and truly 90 percent of all questions can be answered with either "The alcohol is in the con suite" or "You'll have to ask someone on the con comm."

AND THEN!! We have an awesome space we call the Roadhouse (Supernatural throwback, hollah!), where people can congregate, hang out, drink, grab a snack, look at auction items, whatever floats your boat...it's probably happening in the Roadhouse.
Volunteers will need to give directions, make people feel welcome and hang out with fangirls. Sounds great, right? BECAUSE IT IS!! We will have some additional activities happening in the Roadhouse this year but I'll post more about that once the schedule goes live. So stay tuned!! But in the meantime? Sign up to volunteer!!
