We Need a Few Good Volunteers!

May 29

We’re trying something a little different this year for Go Play NW. We’re going to have a more formal volunteer program to help make sure Go Play NW runs smoothly and remains a safe place for gamers of every description. To help us do that, we’re looking for some people to act as volunteers for the weekend. The duty should be fairly light, and you’ll get a special Go Play NW 2015 Staff T-shirt for free.
Our goal is for our volunteers to enjoy the con as much as we do, so we’re only going to ask you to help out with 2 or maybe 3 slots, and you’ll still be able to schedule games in those slots. The main job we’re asking volunteers to do is to help run donuts at the beginning of game slots and act as an on-site “safety” person to help foster a safe, inclusive, and welcoming environment.

What Go Play NW is all About

Every year we have some new people join our community, and even old hands sometimes have questions.
Our focus at Go Play NW is getting together to make friends and play games. That’s why Go Play NW always has a mix of pre-scheduled games and loosely organized pickup gaming. Scheduled gaming is organized through the forums. In a couple of weeks, we’ll open up scheduling forums where anyone can offer games and sign up to play.
Pick-up play is organized in two ways. First, there will be a table where facilitators can post games at any time during the con. Participants can then sign up to join those games. There will also be a short pre-slot pickup session before each gaming block for people who haven’t signed up for anything in that slot.
At Go Play NW, everyone makes the fun together. Thing about brining a game or two that you can facilitate or run, even if you don’t schedule it ahead of time. If you’re planning on doing some pick-up gaming, come ready to try something new.
See you in June!
