We need you! Yes you, not you, the other you!

We are fast approaching the London MCM Expo in May 2011, and we are looking for Volunteers to help out during the event. We are not looking for any one, we are looking for people who will be willing to put up with the extra workload that this will put on you, and understand that you may not have as much fun as you think you will. – It probably does not sell the part, but I have to be honest up front.

I will update this list as time goes along, as we may need more people than this initial list, but I will ensure to update the usual areas to ensure people know I have made an update.

So here is what we are currently looking for!

Area 1: Someone to record and film what happens on the stand. We have a number of tournaments and side events going along at the May Expo, and it would be great if we can get someone in to film what is going on. We already have a small video camera, however any additional help here would be great. We would try and get these on the website during the show, and/or get them up after she show as full pieces. One thing we do lack is video proof of what is going on during the day!

Area 2: People to cosplay characters from the games that we have on, to get more people to play, and to pose for photographs and such. It sounds very cheesy, but it would make the stand more interesting, and get people taking photos of the stand! – I am being selfish, but I would like to see more photographs of our stand actually in use. If allowed, I may try and get some flyers printed as well.

Area 3: After event reports, we are looking for help with some write ups on how you feel the event went for yourself, this doesn’t just have to apply to Expo, but for other events as well. Trying to see if we can get some more details on the website.

Area 4: Assistance with obtaining games and arcade parts for the stand, looking for new things for us to try. Additionally help with repair and maintenance of some of the machines, to try and get more up and running.

I will probably post more areas as the time goes along, so watch this space!
