Title: DATR Workers?
Post by: scott on May 27, 2004, 08:16:10 AM
DATR is rolling up mighty quick, and besides a friendly reminder I wanted to see if any of you could lend a hand in covering some worker tasks at the show. Pat Wells is in charge of the staff issues, and all we are asking for is one hour of your time and you will get a STAFF shirt out of the deal! Several of us are volunteering for two shifts, but I do not expect that from ANYONE!  

I am going to ask the concessions folks if our staff can get a discount, if not we may just do some BBQ type stuff to feed all of you! If you can work, please post up and also mention what size t-shirt you will need.

Thanks,
Scott

What kinds of things would you want us to do?
Title: DATR Workers?
Post by: scott on May 27, 2004, 08:39:26 AM
we have several things...

Directing cars is a big one, but we also have registration, t-shirt sales, swap meet stuff, and a few other things... nothing is very tough....

We do not segregate cars at our show, so parking is MUCH less complicated and really we just need folks to keep traffic flow orderly and we need to ensure they are entering nd exiting in the right places! Cars get parked as they arrive.... nice and simple!

Considering how much space there was last year, would it be ok for the Passats to have more room between each car? Last year there was a ton of space towards the south side of the parking lot. Us Passats were cramped together up towards the northeast side of the lot. When all the GTI guys rolled in they were parked all nice and diagonal on the east side of the lot.

Thanks.

space is not going to be an issue this year, each will get two spaces and will be centered on the line between those spaces.... make sense?

Scott, definitely put me down.  I actually wanted to help with the planning, but my wife is due July 9th, so I knew I wouldn't be able to commit to anything.

Put me down for two shifts and I wear a large.  Let me know when I need to be there and I'll be there.

I'd be more than happy to volunteer my time...how many of us does he need, though? So there, Iíll help. Iíd like a medium shirt please.

About the parking...I take these shows seriously. I don't think it's fair that we get cramped together and can't even open our door because the car next to us is a foot away. If you want to park in a space, which looks like you are just going to the mall and not showing your car off, than you might as well get your spot closer to the mall entrance, so you don't have to walk as far. Sorry itís off topic but thatís just how I feel.

We arenít there to just park our cars in a space and have it look like we are going to the mall. We are there to show off our hard work and dedication and let others see our accomplishments. Having cars a foot apart from one another hardly allows for spectators to get a good look at our rides and it also increases the chance of scratches from them squeezing between.

Am I out of line?

Mark, you are so fired!  Just kidding.  

Actually, from my experience, shows usually have plenty of space for cars.  I think last year, we just parked too close together.  I don't think it was a lack of planning, just a bad execution.

As they say in the space industry, it was a launch problem and not a design problem.
Title: DATR Workers?
Post by: jayryan on May 28, 2004, 10:28:48 AM
Mark, I was just ragging your chain man. I take these shows seriously. I'm sorry, I just found a little off-color humor in your posts that seemed like every other one was on parking.

Dub, I agree. I think it was bad execution. Nobody really directed each parking spot, they told us where to go, but not where to park and we just lined up next to each other you know?

No hard feelings Mark? Sometimes these post things convey the wrong message.

No worries JR. My rant wasn't directed at you and it is tough to convey thoughts through typing. I just think the Passats get the short end of the stick sometimes. I'm just making sure it's gonna be worth my while. The more I thought about it, I want to volunteer my time and help so I can be apart of the car show, which I think will be a fun time.

I agree too. We could have parked better last time, there was bad execution our part.

As far as total numbers go, I do not have that answer, but we do know it will take a minimum of 16 people per shift so if you base the work schedule on a 9-3 type of day that is 6 one hour shifts!!

16 x 6 = 96 people!

I think that actual total number will be smaller than that, but for planning purposes I will stick with 96. A lot of oflks down here are going to take 2 shifts too, so like I said, the total number will be smaller.

As for last year's parking, that was my fault because I was not very clear with how I wanted things to go and we really threw the show together inthe last two weeks.... this year I actually look like I know what I am doing so far!! Anybody wanna head this up next year?? ;)  j/k

Oh yeah and again HUGE props to Winston for the emails and getting things lined up last year! Without those emails  we would have only given away 10 keychains and a t-shirt!

Thanks Scott.  I wish I could have done more this year, but with the baby on the way, there wasn't any way to commit.

Plus you deserve a lot of credit for serving our armed forces over in Iraq then coming back and throwing a great show together!

Just wanted to keep you guys in the loop! Due to the costs involved we have changed the rules on volunteer staffers getting shirts. We arew now going to offer you a show shirt at cost. That cost is still to be determined, but my guess would be somewhere in the 9 dollar range. If this affects your willingness to help, just let me know!

Greg,

Here is the original post on the topic.  Almost all of us are planning on going.  I'm sure we will have had the chance to hang out before then.

To clarify... we are NOT offering staff shirts at cost (unless there is a huge ass demand that we should do that! )

I think it would be easier to just offer regular show shirts to you guys... I am open to opinions on that fact though. If you want real staff shirts, and are still willing to cover the cost, I can do that, but I need exact numbers and sizes, no one can roll up last minute and expect one!
Title: DATR Workers?
Post by: scott on June 10, 2004, 06:53:21 PM
As for the times... Pat is plugging names into his matrix and we should have a beta version of the list out by the 20th.... it will be tweaked a bit, but it makes sense to put the Denver folks on later shifts so you have time to not only get here, but get your car settled and ready too!

Hey Scott, I would still like a large staff shirt.  I'm willing to pay for it.  Is that one cost or what?
Title: DATR Workers?
Post by: scott on June 11, 2004, 06:16:53 AM
ok, let's take a vote here...

all who want to pay for a staff shirt at cost say YES

all who just want a regular show shirt at cost say NO

If you all want staff shirts, give me your size right after your vote!

Hey guys,
  I apologize for my ignorance.  Other than Jay and Winston I don't know most of you very well.

For those of you that volunteered to work would it be possible for you to post or PM me your full names?

I'm the lucky guy that gets to make the work schedule. 8O

Thanks a bunch.

Ok, it has been decided (for good this time) that only those on the planning committee and those that have been actively engaged in the effort to put this show together will be getting staff shirts. I will have the exact costs onthe shirts this Saturday night, and will report back to you guys with a number no later than Sunday morning.

Sorry guys, it was not my call I am just one of many in this thing.  :?

I did however add you guys as a supporting sponsor on the flyers that went to Dubwar, and they will also be going to Midwest Massiv. It is in the text at the bottom of the flyer, but you guys are there. Thank youin advance for volunteering to make this show a good one!

Jay always never forg et to take the red pill.  You don't want to be come aBule Pill Person (http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article1543.htm)

So it looks like regular shirts at cost.  How will attendees differentiate us as staffers?  

As for the cruise down, we will open a new thread on that the week before the show so check back on that.

Also keep an eye open for detailing days, etc. that we will post on.

Winston..
We're working out the staff identification aspect.  We've got another meeting coming up soon and we'll probably hash it out then.  You guys are welcome to send an RMCB5 rep to the meeting if you'd like.  PM me for details.


One last check for anyone that wants to work the show as I'm finalizing the work schedule this week.
