Thank you to everyone that applied, and all the lovely (for the brains) people that will be assisting us this weekend. You’re all awesome. Every single one of you.
Right, so there’s all these tournament things happening over the weekend of 29 to 31 May at CTICC and we – along with our human associates at Orena, Clan Connection, eHaven and TGN Racing Simulators – will be doing as much as mere mortals (or undead) can in the run up to the event, but the truth is, over the weekend, we need help. And we’d love it if some of that help could be from you. Or you. Or maybe you.
We’re looking for volunteers to assist us with tournament admin, general operations and some menial tasks like foot massages and back rubs. Alright, maybe not the latter two – unless you’re really keen of course.
This request generally goes out to non-competitors over the weekend, but if you are taking part in a tournament, your assistance will not be allowed in your tournament game of choice, because, well, it’s just not right. It should also be noted that while assisting us gains you access to the expo for the day (or days) of sacrifice, this will not equate to a free entry to your tournament, because there’s always a chance of someone laying complaints if you were to win. Unfortunately, payment is also not part of this deal (unless our eternal gratitude and hugs present a real value) but we will have something for you to eat and drink via the expo organisers.
If you have some level of competitive or tournament administration experience, we will dump you with the grand responsibility of some score taking and general refereeing, but for those not meeting that requirement, looking mean will secure you security work, and being helpful to boot (or only) will secure you more general assistance responsibilities. Basically, we’d just be happy to have you help.
We won’t lie, it’s going to be a long day (or days if you’re particularly brave), and you may discover a few of us can be grumpy people or zombies (especially on day three), but if we weren’t clear about it elsewhere, we will all be eternally indebted to you for helping us make the event happen.
