FLiPS cohost/volunteer signup sheet
« on: October 06, 2015, 10:56:31 PM »
This thread is specifically for people looking to volunteer to help out at a FLiPS event.

Volunteers can sign up here and state what they are willing to do to help out if/when the need arises. If you are interested in hosting, please post on the calendar thread.

Not sure what you can do?

Suggestions-offer to do one or more of the following:

Bring ice in a cooler
Bring sodas or water
Bring food, dessert or snacks
Bring paper towels or napkins
Help clean or fix games
Help level games
Bring fresh flipper, slingshot or post rubber for worn out games
Organize or run a tourney
Carpool or shuttle others to free up parking at small venues
Clean up afterwards
Present a seminar on a pinball related topic

Be creative!  If you want to help, post here or reach out to the host and see if he/she needs anything.

Similarly, hosts should look on this thread to see who is available to pitch in if they want/need a hand.

Thanks!

-Jeff

Would like to help out in any way. I can bring supplies/food/drinks. Help clean up. I'm retired, so I have an open schedule. :)

Thanks, however it would be helpful to me if I knew who you are :). I didn't get a chance to meet you at Ron's.

Perhaps we will meet up at APE.

Thanks for helping out!  Lots of people are usually in the background doing things to help the group have a good time. 

Some of us even have "special shirts that give us special powers" oooooohhhhh. :)

           You are welcome to come to my parties.  No need to bring anything.  I will take care of the food, drinks and all of my games.  I have events often, PM me for details.  :D  Chuck

To those reading this subforum, Chuck (wolowizard) does host several parties, but his group is called FLIPPERZ, which is not the same as FLiPS.
