A Fan-Operated Science Fiction and Fantasy Literary and Filk Convention in the Dallas/Fort Worth Area
FenCon 2005 Volunteers
Volunteering is a great way to meet new people and to help out
with various areas of the convention. Whether you can work one shift or several,
we need your help. FenCon is "of the fen, by the fen, for the fen" and this is
a classic "by the fen" opportunity.
What's in it for me? You mean besides meeting
new people and the warm glow you get from a job well done? How about this:
All volunteers who work at least 14 hours during FenCon II will
receive a free regular membership to FenCon III in 2006. We will,
of course split this time into multiple shifts and try to accomodate your
schedule. Spend a little time with us now, save some cash in the future.
If you are interested, please fill out the form above or send an email to
firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or comments.
