Pennsic Security E-Volunteering

Poster: SirO <siro@mis.net>

Unto Pennsic Guests and those wonderful souls who volunteer.
To avoid the "mad rush" for shifts at Pennsic and to allow everyone a
chance to help,
This year I am instituting advance, as well as on-site shift assignments
for Security Volunteers.
To help foster teamwork and allow groups that would normally find it
difficult to work together, I will be accepting advance "group" requests
for shift assignments first.
There are a few catches, so read on.
Thanks for your help and effort.

E-mail Volunteering:
Groups ( 6 + ) will be allowed to volunteer for shifts as of 1 June 1999.
Small groups ( 2 - 6 )  will be allowed to volunteer for shifts as of 21
June 1999.

Any loose association of people who wish to work together for the common
good may form a "group" for volunteering purposes.
