This year was the very 1st time, I decided to volunteer at MFF. The process is simple I started when I registered and later on I filled out a online forum and was LINKED to the Telegram group volunteers use. You know they actually have an Online Reserve for key volunteer jobs. I didn’t do that, I just went to the volunteer office on the very first day of the con
Where I filled out a Legal Release saying I can’t sue MFF if I got hurt. Afterwards I was given one of their blue volunteer vests, and sent off to where I was needed. That is generally the Elevators which I did twice. I would have done it more, I really wanted that Gopher pin.
Gophers get a FREE Pin if they volunteer for 5 hours, They have a Super Gopher pin for 10 hours, 12 or more you get a free Regular weekend Badge, or a discount on a Sponsor or Shiny Sponsor admission. Plus that Exclusive Super Gopher pin.
There are some who actually volunteer the entire con and to those Furry Times Salutes you.
MFF is a great con, and I will be back next year, and if I got time I will also be volunteering again. I really want that Gopher Pin.
