3/20/22 Frag swap volunteer thread

Chromis

Speaker Series
BOD
These frag swaps do not run only on the back of the BOD, members who are generous with their time who often do most of the leg work at the event are really the ones who should be thanked for making them work. Frag swaps are no different we absolutely need people to help out, especially when we're on a time crunch, whether it's moving a tables, helping with registration, or telling people where to go. So this here is a signup list for those who can help, I do ask though to only volunteer if you absolutely know you can be at the event at a particular time. I'll pass out my phone number to volunteers too in case something comes up, traffic is a thing, real life happens, etc.

Job descriptions at end.
Note: This is not the end all be all of people who can help, simply those who have committed so far, more hands makes less work and all that
Setup - 10:30 until set up @DreadPirateRoberts @gmdcdvm @Reefinglens
Registration - 11:30-12:30 @2manyhobbies @MolaMola @IOnceWasLegend (wife)
Coral Runners - 11:30-12:30, @Devon @kvnb86
Frag Patrol - 12:30 until end of swap proper @fingerwrinkles
Cleanup - End of swap until done, @2manyhobbies @Apon @zen_mattster


Jobs
Setup - Get tables set up for frags including any sort of signs, move anything that the property owner needs moved, set up table for registration.
Registration - Check names that are registered, make sure people have at least 3 unique corals to qualify, do not need to know anything about corals just make sure three different names.
Coral Runners - Take corals from checked in (registered) participants put them on appropriate tables
Frag Patrol - Someone "guard" the entrance to the picking area to make sure only the appropriate letter of the person is there, someone to enforce their authoritay! in the picking area
Cleanup - Take tables down, move whatever was moved back into place, make sure no trash was left anywhere, leave the home as it was before the swap

I am a new reefer and only have fish in my tank so far, but would love to volunteer in exchange for attending this swap and meeting some local reefers. Put me wherever you need me and let me know when I should be there.

If you want to volunteer for a specific job - go for it, we can always use the help. That said, you don't need to volunteer to attend; check out the other thread I started. People will happily give you frags to attend.

I will be there for the entire swap period; setup, registration (I am good at that), cleanup, breakdown, etc. When you have a final tally, let me know who is coming and I will make up name tags.

As announced on the main thread, we have moved the location of the swap to nearby Cali Kid Corals and moved it 1 day back to Sunday 3/20. I hope folks will still be able to attend/volunteer.

I’ll be there at 1030 to help/hang out. I can help with whatever throughout the day. I’m not participating in the swap.

Looking forward to it!

Wow - in my neck of the woods! I can definitely be there to help in any way needed (except inspecting SPS or zoas, which I am not familiar with).
