TOPIC: Volunteers for Gencon

Volunteers for Gencon 5 months 2 weeks ago #1

Do you have an idea about when recruiting for Gencon volunteers will end?

I am on the fence about going. If I go, I will volunteer.
I wondered about when the decision will need to be made.

The Gen Con benefits and responsibilities button on TD Volunteers says

ANYONE interested in volunteering must fill out the volunteer application by April 30th, 2021. All volunteers MUST fill out all the applicable fields. This information is kept secure, and is used to select and schedule all volunteers. While we can accept applications AFTER 4/30/21, scheduling begins 4/30/2021. Apply before that date to have the best chance at getting the volunteer role you prefer.


Unsure how set in stone that is, may be worth reaching out to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.? (Or someone on here may know, I just came across the above when contemplating the same thing myself earlier today.)

I had decided to take a break from volunteering for a year in 2019, then my surgeon wouldn’t let me fly to GC after knee surgery (if I had known that would be the case I would have delayed the surgery). Then I was going to take a break in 2020, and we know how that went. Will I take a break this year? Who knows?

Hmmm, I missed that as well. To go to Gencon and not coach TD would seem very odd. I know they have to make their decisions and plans too, but it seems pretty early with this ever changing world we are in.

I guess I will play it by ear. If funds and opportunity work out, maybe they can use a stand by coach

I'm still worried about not getting a badge for gencon....also concerned if the con decides to limit operating hours to reduce risk that there could only be one shift of volunteers and full time would work all weekend.
Fall down......Go boom!

I put in to vol full time as at this point i want to see folks and honestly as a vol makes easier on me. It did feel good to finally update my application that i'm fully vaccinated now.

With the reduced attendance i wouldn't be surprised if shifts were changed around. Like everything else it's wait and see.

I do hope that vol notices come out earlier so if those of us who don't vol can potentially make other arrangements to attend if needed.
We're all the kind of people who enjoy the game on a "meta" level. We like talking about the game year-round. We buy tokens. We enjoy crafting. We get together during the off-season if we can. We are a very skewed demographic that way. -Raven

I wish we had an idea how it stands.
Do they need more volunteers? How many badges will really be available? How will TD work in a socially distant set up? I really want to coach but there are so many unknowns.
I plan on getting my first dose in the next couple weeks, but even so my wife insists that if I go, I must isolate at our farm for two weeks. (lots of peace and quiet, only downside is we don't have water there).
But I really want to see some friends, but the idea of being around so many people does give one some anxiety after not doing so for a year and a half.

Only a third of our group is going in any case.

I just filed for GenCon, and was accepted, and in the acceptance it stated "we need your help! To fully realize our creative vision for Gen Con 2021 we need more volunteers."

If you're interested in volunteering hit them up, tis the time.

Based on the email, that appears to be the case.
