Hey folks, we're in need of some volunteers! Sorry the request is so late in the game, we've been waiting on some logistical info about when we'll be able to access the venue.

If you're in town and free on Friday morning at 11am, we could use 2-3 people to help set up our panel room! It'll be unstacking chairs and putting them into rows, pulling the whiteboard and whatnot out storage, and just generally making sure the room will be ready for use first thing on Saturday. Shouldn't take more than an hour.

If you're a morning person and/or just raring to go first thing Saturday, we'll need another 2-3 folks at the venue at 8am to help set up the recording room in 106A. For reasons that don't need exploring at this juncture, we can't get in there any earlier. It'll be more of the same: setting chairs out, propping up the pipe and drape, and making sure the recording space is ready for use.
Update: We are good for volunteers for Saturday morning! Thank you!

We'll need 2-3 folks to help set up the sandwich lunch event in the kitchenette area! We'll also need the same numbers of peeps to help clean up after it's over at 12:45pm!
Update: We're good for setup volunteers! We could still use some clean up helpers though.

We'll need 5-6 people to help clean up and teardown after things are all over! It'll be restacking chairs, general cleaning up, and putting things away before we head out to the Sunday offsite dinner.

If you're willing and able to commit to any of these things in advance, please drop us a comment, a tweet, or email to let us know to expect you! WE WILL LOVE YOU FOREVER.

So now that we've got the schedule out there and y'all can make some informed decisions, we're looking for some volunteers! Our needs are small, but we definitely can't do this thing without you.

10/13 Update: We appear to have all our volunteer jobs filled! You guys are amazing! :D

Here's a rundown of the various things we need help with:

Saturday Morning Setup (9:00-9:30am)
There are a lot of chairs. They mostly need to be in theater style in rooms 107 and 106A. If chair moving is your passion or even just your "Eh, I could do that" let us know! We'll also need some help setting up the soundproofing equipment in room 106A, the AV equipment in 107, and putting up signage around the Waterbury building directing Podfication attendees to our rooms.
10/13 Update: We are now good on volunteers for this. Thanks!

Saturday Sandwich Lunch (~11:30am-1:30pm)
We'll provide food and plates and such, but we need a few people who can set it all out just before noon on Saturday and put it all away afterward! Or hey, if you're local and have a real knack for buying lunch meat, tubs of peanut butter, and paper plates, we'd love to let someone spearhead the pre-con portion of this endeavor too so we can stay focused on organizing everything else.
10/8 Update: We are good on this for both the pre-con organization and the setup! Thanks, volunteers!

Saturday End of Day Cleanup (~9:30pm)
Just some basic cleanup and storage duties before we leave the premises on Saturday night.
10/4 Update: We are now good on volunteers for this. Thanks!

Sunday Live Performances Door Duty (1:00-3:00pm)
We'll need 3 people who can each take an hour shift each at the door during Live Performances to let people in and out of the room between the readings.
10/8 Update: We are now good on volunteers for this. Thanks!

Sunday Evening Teardown (5:30pm)
All the chairs that were set out will need to be stacked up again and the soundproofing in 106A and other equipment taken down and loaded into cars before we go, plus any last minute cleaning so we can leave the nice people at GPS the rooms just as we found them.
10/13 Update: We are now good on volunteers for this. Thanks!

Assorted Chair Moving at Various Intervals
We may need some folks to help us move chairs between 107 and 106A for things like the Not!Fic Extravaganza and the Live Performances on Sunday, depending on if there are enough for both rooms or not. Keep an ear out if you're available during those times because we might ask whoever's around if they can help.

We may append this post if other things come up, so check back periodically!

If you're able to step up to do any of these things, please let us know! Drop us a comment, tweet (@podfication), or email us (podfication at gmail).
