Greeters

From Pyropedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Join our team of Greeter Fairy Godparents and you get the opportunity to be one of the first smiling faces welcoming your family home and blessing their journey on the pecan playa. You'll get to meet and greet (and butt wash!!) so many people and socialize, and it's a great way to get familiar with the layout of the playa and to know where all the theme camps are located!  Volunteers in this department will be checking that Burners entering the playa have a solid understanding of: our Burn principles (including but not limited to: photography policies, consent, leave no trace, etc),  having all the supplies they need to survive the experience, and understanding where they are headed (We get to show off the fancy maps and get people acquainted with Camps!!). Additionally, our department also works with other departments in Genesis (InterZone Coordinator, Parking, and Towing) to direct traffic through the Greeter's area! This is a fun department to volunteer in whether you are a fresh or seasoned burner! 

This is a high energy, fun way to volunteer and greeters are often a participant's first exposure to the principles, the land and the event. This volunteer position so much more than hugs and dancing, greeters must be knowledgeable about all things Flipside and able to quiz / assess each participants readiness.

If this sounds like a fun way to volunteer, we will provide you with training (a fun one-hour class and a soft copy of the greeter's training materials) as well as various teaching materials on-site.

Training Schedule

Everyone should attend a greeter's training! It's an important part of our volunteer position to be well-informed! If you cannot make one of these events, please contact eve.evilicious@gmail.com

Dates and locations:

These dates are in the works! Come to Town Hall on February 2nd at the Warehouse and make a suggestion for training dates!

Preparing for your Greeter Shift

Please make sure that you have read and understand the following before your shift:

How to volunteer

How to sign up on this page

Step 1: Login using the link in the upper right hand side of this page. Your login and password should be the same as your login to the burningflipside.com site. Please note that the site has been upgraded this year, so you may be required to create a new login and password..

Step 2: Read through the info on this page.

Step 3: Scroll down to find an open greeter shift that you want to fill. Click the "edit" link to open the section in edit mode.

Step 4: Enter your name (burner name is fine), camp (or badlands) and a way for us to contact you (preferably email address). If you do not want to put your information on this signup page, you can email eve.evilicious@gmail.com with the necessary information. I will add a placeholder to the wiki and keep your information so that we can contact you prior to the event.

Signup in person

  • At any one of the traveling road shows.
  • At Church Nights to be announced soon.

Theme camps

We love it when a theme camp adopts an entire greeters shift!

  • Please find a shift that can accommodate the number of volunteers you are providing.
  • Identify a camp member who is responsible for coordinating your group volunteering efforts,
  • Provide contact information for each volunteer slot you are signing up for. If it's too early to identify exact volunteers, please feel free to block out the slots you want to take. We'll followup with you via email, when it gets closer to the event to remind you to trade those out for actual volunteers!

Choosing a shift - some things to know

  • Gate hours are not yet finalized so shift times may be subject to change.
  • The gate can't be open if greeters isn't staffed and operational. You should plan on being at the greeter's station 15 minutes before your shift to check in and get oriented.
  • The first shifts of the day start at 8:30 to allow for time to get everything setup, uncovered and ready to go!
  • The last shift of the day ends approximately one hour after gate closes to make sure those last few participants are greeted and also to secure/close down the greeter's station. If you can, please, please, please sign up for these later shifts.

Early Entry

There are a few early entry shifts for Greeter's. If you can help, email the Greeter Lead at eve.evilicious@gmail.com. If I put your name in Bold, it means I have your official details correct for the Early Entry List. If you put your name in bold, it means I will probably miss you. So don't do that.  ;-)

Tickets

You have your ticket, right? If not, please put your name in italics when you sign up. That way, we know if we might have to replace you, and we also know where to go if we find ourselves with an extra ticket.

=== Most of all thank you for your time in helping to make Flipside work!!!!!! ===

Note: Early Entry shifts are subject to special approval and require your full legal name (as it appears on your photo ID). If you don't wish to put that info in here, you can email it privately to the Greeter Lead.
