    This year we’re excited to roll out a new program and a big change for QuakeCon: we’re expanding our volunteer staff. The volunteers at QuakeCon has been an integral part of our event since the very beginning more than twenty years ago. For more than a decade there were two ways to volunteer at QuakeCon: by join the full time volunteer staff or by helping as an on-demand volunteer at the event.

    This year we’re changing that by expanding our staff and including part-time volunteers as part of the core team that makes the operation of QuakeCon possible.

    If you’re interested in joining the staff of QuakeCon, we have an online application form that you can complete to help us match you up with the right opportunity.

    If using mobile use landscape; the same orientation you would use if playing Fallout Shelter. If your phone is oriented vertically (taller than it is wide) you may not be able to see all the check boxes and radio buttons.

    Oops hope I didn't miss anything... Definitely used portrait. Didn't see a place for email or anything so not sure how they'd get in touch with me. But I applied! Hoping to be able to help out somehow since I can't do setup.

    Ahoy everybody!
    I'll be once again your Crimp commander in Chief.
    There's some switch up on duties this year.
    The BYOC team needs an army! Are you fit for the task?

    Kyle: Thanks for posting this. I was about to.

    Any update on when we might hear about invites to staff or otherwise? Missed tourney setup team this year so hoping someone else might pick up this orphan.

    I didn't hear until like a week ago, so I took what I was offered, but it sounds like nobody has really started reaching out yet. Hard to plan with all the last minute stuff. :-/

    Only one more week left till QuakeCon 2017 setup commences! Looking forward to helping get the venue set up and helping in whatever capacity is needed.

    I hope the 'staff' check-in desk is easy to find.

    Go down the medium-ish long hallway and turn left where that one statue used to be, then walk past a few rooms. Pace back and forth 3 times thinking about what you really need, then climb into the painting with the deranged knight who wants to fight everyone. Do the Hokey Pokey, turn yourself around, and that's where it'll be.

    I got my work schedule. It's different from what I was originally told but I can accommodate. I'm seeing a lot of people that are disappointed to not be contacted about volunteering... Are the schedules all filled up?

Once solid info is out and there is onsite something another will make a new post in here for all to see. Stay tuned at your favorite forums for insta news :)

    K, that's what I thought...if y'all think that there's still a chance they may need volunteers then some of the other staff might want to mention it. In discord, slack, and Facebook I'm seeing people disappointed that they personally were not contacted or that a friend was not contacted. Seems a shame to turn them away before everything is accommodated for. I've been sending everyone the link to the application but wasn't sure what their chances were. I saw on a schedule that there were still plenty of gaps so I just hope that those that haven't been contacted aren't giving up quite yet.
