Calling all volunteers!

Many of you have offered to spend a bit of time volunteering over Bouchercon weekend.

First, thanks!

Second, we have jobs for you.  We'd love an hour or two of  your time, when you're not otherwise occupied having fun (remember, fun is our primary goal  ;-)

Here's where we need your help. 

Before Bouchercon begins
  • Monday and Tuesday:  stuffing envelopes and general administrivia (and help Rae to keep from pulling out what's left of her hair - tough job, but someone's gotta do it  ;-)
  • Wednesday:  5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
  • Thursday and Friday:  7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
  • Saturday:  7:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Day Passes
  • Thursday, Friday and Saturday:  7:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m
Panel monitors
  • This is fun for a panel you're attending.  You set out the name cards, make sure there's water for the panelists, and let the moderator know when time is running short.
Opening Ceremonies
  • Thursday starting at 6:00.  This is helping to keep things moving, and helping with activities after the Opening Ceremonies
Signing area in the Book Room
  • Thursday:  9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
  • Friday and Saturday:  8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
  • Sunday:  8:00 a.m. to noon
Anthony Banquet on Sunday morning

If you can help, write to the Ever Fabulous Judy Bobalik at, and let her know what you'd like to do, and what times you're available.

For the Monday & Tuesday "stuffing" duties, do you hae any idea of what times that might be? Esp. anything late evening?

For clarification. For any of these volunteer duties we are only asking for one or two hours of your time. Not 7:30-1:30, etc. Sorry, we knew what we meant and thought you could read our minds.

These will depend on how much Rae get done. If she needs help getting the names badges put in the envelopes and all the other various last minute things, she'll contact the people who have volunteered. So the short answer is I'm sure it will be flexible.
