Hi Rasha -

Just to be sure I understand - are you volunteering for both morning and afternoon water for tutorial instructors?

Hello Volunteers -

  • Thursday is a big day - there's SWAG, which is a big task, but a social event.  If it's your first  PyCon, you'll probably meet more people here than....
Also, Thursday late afternoon may be a rush on registration, as people really start piling in.

Here's what we have going on:

  • Morning (8:30):   I need one person who will get 2 bottles of water to each tutorial room, to the instructor's podium area.
    • water bottles are in the green room;
    • you may need to find a bag / box so you can do this in one quick trip;
    • Please reply to this email to volunteer for either morning or afternoon "water" task!
  • Afternoon sessions (1:00):   one person (the same - water to instructor stations)
  • 2-3 people to staff Registration at the 3PM, 4PM; and 5PM slots.
  • 8-10 people:  4:30PM  at the exit of tutorials (4:40) to invite people to "BAG 10" at Swag
    • Swag is in Rm. 200 - the open area where the Green Room, Sponsor Tutorials, etc. are, which is upstairs, behind Registration
  • SWAG -   Please come help with SWAG, and encourage others.
    • You can stay as long as you like, or come, leave, come back - but I ask you at least stuff 10 SWAG BAGS.

That's all I can think of at the moment for Thursday.

Note:   If / when you don't know how to help, remember: you can be a worker bee (and do what told), or you can be a social bee, and take initiave.
One of the most useful things is to be able to help people when they don't know where to go.   A good exercise:
  • Study the Event Schedule (available @ Registration);
  • In particular, open and study "SERVICES AND SPECIAL EVENTS" for Thursday, and be sure you know what is going on, and where that is.
  • Then, walk around and look for people look "lost" or puzzled, and ask if you can help them find something.
This, throughout the conference, is a most useful way to volunteer and meet people (and you might make some friends too!).

NOTE:  For the main conference:
Thank you for your continued help, and see you all tomorrow!

Friday morning is a _really_ big day! :-)
