CHECK IN - Please contact Lori Jo Whitehaus at email@example.com for more information on volunteering in this area. For a national convention, this means ensuring a smooth check in for all exhibitors. Volunteers are needed two days before check in to stuff packets. When the Registration Booth is open for check in, it will stay open around the clock until the deadline to have all rabbits checked in. That means we need volunteers to be staffing the booth continuously from Thursday afternoon through Saturday evening.
Thursday, October 17th from 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM is a critical time. We really need about 15-20 people then to stuff the 2,000+ registration packets.
Saturday, October 19th from 8:00 PM - Midnight (or later) is a crazy time. We really need about 15 people then to tear apart the comment cards and put them with the control sheets for the Show.
Tuesday, October 22nd at around 6:00 PM we need help cutting and stuffing all of the "legs" into the packets.
Tuesday, October 22nd at around 8:00 PM - Midnight (or sooner, if we have a lot of people), we will stuff all of the results and ribbons into the packets.
SECRETARY'S BOOTH - Please contact Lori Jo Whitehaus at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on volunteering in this area. During the convention, a team of about 25 volunteers is needed to staff the booth with the majority of the work beginning on Monday morning. At that point, we will be preparing for check out and will again work around the clock to have all packets ready for exhibitors to take home on Wednesday morning. All of the computer data is handled by a vendor so you don't need to know any particular show program. Again, Lori Jo and Tori are coordinating this area.

o Tuesday October 15: 9a-12p, 12p-3p, 3p-6p, 6p-9p

YOUTH CONTEST ANIMALS - Please contact Gerry Vaerewyck at email@example.com for more information on volunteering in this area. You can register these animals at https://secure.netsolhost.com/vere.com/html1/arba2013.html. Approximately 300-400 rabbits and cavies are needed for the Youth Contests. These animals arrive and leave with the same rules as those that are entered in the show. There is separate cooping for the contest animals. Some are needed for Breed Identification contests and others are needed for the Judging Contests. Gerry Vaerewyck is collecting a list of animals for these contests.
