HENCHMEN

OUR NEXT MEETING?

Go to Eclectic Endeavors FB Group to see.

SHIFTS

Typical shifts will be 2 hours at a time.  If you volunteer for multiple shifts, try not to schedule your whole day as a Henchmen.  We want everyone to enjoy G.A.M.E. and it not just be a working weekend.

You can see who’s signed up for what shifts so far on the schedule at the bottom of this page.

HENCHMEN T-SHIRT

Henchmen will receive a free Volunteer T-shirt so you are easily identified by all attendees and staff.   These are not the same shirts as the event shirts.

PERSONAL VOLUNTEERS

Directors can ask for and find volunteers for their own areas, for their own use. These volunteers answer primarily to the director that procured them and will be subject to normal volunteer application procedure.

DUTIES

When you volunteer as a Henchmen, you will put what times you are available on your application.  During G.A.M.E. you will report to Taneesa Hall and check the duties board in The Lair.  You’ll be assigned duties where we need you.

Duties will include things like registration desk, HQ, Media Room, vendor support, activities organizing, where ever we need you.

ALL HENCHMEN will receive training via sessions prior to G.A.M.E.   Each training session will create a certification for a Henchmen in that field.  You can only work in areas for which you are certified.

THE LAIR

As a Henchmen you have access to “The Lair.”  This is where you can hang out when not busy with duties.  We will be stashing free food & drinks in this room for you to consume.  You and you alone have access to this room — no friends & family — but it is available to you ALL WEEKEND!  Not just when you are on shift!!

THANK YOU EVENT

A few weeks after G.A.M.E. we will be inviting volunteers, staff and sponsors to attend a Thank You event at 1984 where you can play unlimited video games and have pizza & soda on the house!  Stay tuned for this date to be announced.
