Welcome to ICE! My name is Charles aka "Drizzten" aka "Ronin" aka "Hooter" aka Ice Lead.

The Gift Economy rules Burning Flipside, but one commercial product is available: ICE! Please sign up for shifts below, and thanks so much for viewing this page. EVERY BODY NEEDS ICE! Please help!

Though Flipside is always subject to changes, Ice is normally located between the Effigy Field and Safety HQ. Look for the two 18-wheeler trailers and listen for bad sarcastic puns. Can't miss us.

Volunteering for Ice

DURING FLIPSIDE

Volunteering for ICE is the coolest. While even The Loneliest Wolf can sign up, we love to see big groups bring their own particular brand of awesome. Serve drinks, play your own music, throw a mini-party, come up with special outfits! Bring your weird to ICE! ICE is the place at Flipside where everyone goes. Show off what your theme camp is up to!

There are 1-3 (two hour) shifts at ice each day and 4 main volunteer positions needed for each shift, they are:

Pusher - person in the ice truck. This person will break down the palettes and will move the ice bags and blocks to the door of the truck where a Slinger will retrieve it. Gloves and warm clothes are recommended, non-slip shoes are absolutely required. (non-open toed shoes are strongly encouraged.) Slipping and falling are the big concerns here.

That said, working in a refrigerated trailer is a great way to keep cool on a hot Texas afternoon.

Slinger - retrieves ice from the truck and carries it to the counter. The slinger should be able to carry 5 bags of ice (packaged together). Gloves encouraged but not strictly required.

Cashier - rings up the ice on the register and handles money. The cashier lets the slinger know how many bags of ice are needed.

Shift/Safety Lead - one person needs to be the GO TO person or shift lead. It can get really busy sometimes and there needs to be one person that keeps their eye on the big picture, makes sure the other volunteers have everything they need (like ice water), checks the fuel in the generators, keeps an eye (both eyes!) on safety, resolves any unforeseen issues, keeps watch on the lounge equipment, and gets help if needed. Did I mention ice water?

Only one position can be worked by one person each shift because each is important. Please only sign up for one position per shift.

> > > New in 2019 is the first dedicated shift for helping with the snowball fight. This means a new position called Grinder. These folks will be focused on grinding donated bags of ice into snowballs for the snowball fight Saturday or Sunday, weather and safety permitting. Grinders will bring ice bags to the grinding area, load the ice shavers, load snowballs into donated coolers, and load the coolers into the truck for storage. We start by assuming the snowball fight will happen Saturday around 3pm, but circumstances may push it to another time or on Sunday. Come by Ice at the event to get the most updated news.

Ice Angels aka Earth Guardians - LNT (leave no trace) is part of our community commitment at Flipside. Learn it, live it, pass it to others! If you see a mess at the end of your shift, or anytime you're hanging at Ice, please help clean it up! Better yet, leave it better than you found it! Glam it up! It's our theme camp!

Music - There is no DJ signup, because we encourage shifts to bring their own music. We will have a PA system for you to use, with your own digital music player. NOTE: musical cleverness is always appreciated, but keep it fun and upbeat. E-mail ice18@burningflipside.com to get confirmation on just how clever your tunes really are.  ;)


BEFORE, DURING & AFTER FLIPSIDE

We've got stuff at Ice! Cash registers, furniture, lighting, etc, etc, that need getting ready, getting there, maintaining during the event, and then getting home. If you're interested in helping the team outside the shift hours, send an e-mail to ice18@burningflipside.com including the following info: when you are available, how much time you have to commit, and a phone number. Thank you!
