Minnesota Bluegrass and Old-Time Music Association

WINTER BLUEGRASS WEEKEND VOLUNTEERS

A Festival of Bluegrass & Old-Time Music & Dance
Fri-Sun, March 6-8, 2015, Crowne Plaza Minneapolis West, Plymouth MN

Are you coming to MBOTMA's Winter Bluegrass Weekend on March 6-8, 2015? To make the weekend a reality we will need to fill 140 volunteer shifts with many volunteers like you - people willing to do their part to make it happen. Would you be able to help us out for just a couple hours? Volunteers still pay their own admission, but they get preferential seating at the Saturday Night Headline Concerts (just get your ticket stamped "volunteer" at the ticket table and we'll let you in before everyone else).

 

 

Below is the schedule of things we need help with, along with descriptions of the tasks. Take your pick of whatever items have no name listed after it. To Sign Up: Just email Jed Malischke and tell him what task and time you are interested in. It's easy. And thank you.


Exhibit Room Monitors. An easy task, just stand or sit by an exhibit room door and allow in only people with exhibitor tags. A couple can work together and fill two spots (the doors are next to each other). These are sometimes short shifts lasting a little over an hour.

Gate Keepers. Another easy task. Just sit at the entrance to one of our stage areas and check to see that people have wristbands. You might also have raffle tickets to sell. We need one person each at the Auditorium Room, Europa Room, and Dance Parlour at most times on all three days.
