Hi everyone, we still have some empty shifts available that we really need covered for Dustcovery this Saturday. Not getting these shifts covered means things like the bar might having to close early, shuttles not leaving on time, way longer lineups at the gate, etc. Please sign up for these shifts and help us make this the best Dustcovery ever! Remember, any hours spent volunteering at Dustcovery go towards the hours needed for access to the advanced ticket sale (4-19 volunteer hrs) or a directed ticket (over 19 volunteer hrs) for BiTF 2018.

  • Transportation: 6:30-8:30pm Friday evening and 4-6pm Sunday afternoon (volunteers needed to help load infrastructure gear from the GVIAS locker into the transport truck)
  • Bar: 11:30-1am and 1-2am (cash/drink ticket sales) & 1-2am (bar float)
  • Gate: 7:30-9pm, 9-10:30pm and 9:30-11pm
  • Performers: 8-10pm, 10pm-midnight and midnight-2am (help make sure everyone who’s signed up to perform is at the correct location for their specified time)
  • Shuttles: 9:30-11:30pm, 12-1am, 2-3am **Please note that you do not have to be signed up for any of the shuttles during these times in order to do the volunteer shift**
  • Popcorn: 10:30pm-midnight (making and serving popcorn!)

Callout for more volunteers!

Holy time flies, we’re one week away from the event! We still have some teams that need your help to fill volunteer spots. Help us make sure this event runs super smooth as well as help to make it the best Dustcovery yet! Here are the teams we still need volunteers for:

-Bar: we really need some volunteers with SIR as without a couple of them on the bar per shift, no alcohol can be sold or served. We also need some more bartenders!
-Gate: help scan all the attendees through as quickly as possible so they can get in their and get their fun on
-Shuttles: we need shuttle hosts to help make sure everyone who’s signed up for the shuttles get on the right bus as well as making sure they’re actually signed up for that time and that the bus driver is also a-okay
-Performers: help make sure the nights models/performers are where they’re supposed to be at the correct times and that everything is on schedule
-Transportation: help load all the gear into the truck before the event and help unload it out of the truck after the event
