    Fall 2017 Auction Volunteer Signup Sheet

    Hello Everyone,

    Below is the link to sign-up to volunteer to help out at this years Fall Auction:

    Please volunteer to help out at the auction. Without our club members volunteering to help out we would not have an auction. Luckily, that has yet to happen. Besides, it's a great way to get involved with the club and get to know each other. Please notice that the positions have been split up into hourly time periods. While you'll see many of us volunteer for the entire day, you don't have to. You can volunteer for a few hours or you can switch positions if you would like to try something different. In most cases, there are multiple positions available for each time slot. Any positions highlighted in green below require prior approval before you can sign up. Just PM me if you are interested.

    Volunteer Position Descriptions (these descriptions are also on the sign-up page):
    Morning Setup and Registration - Setup tables and chairs, cover tables, and post signage. Run power, setup computers, setup audio, help with registration, etc. (50 Fish Bucks/hour)

    Volunteers will earn FishBucks to be used for bidding on items at the December meeting/party.

    Sign up early - sign up often.

    The auction doesn't happen without the volunteers making it run - so be a runner (literally) or one of the many other volunteer positions.

    You will have more fun if you volunteer.
