    MTBR Booth Sea Otter - Volunteers?

    Hi All,

    Once again, it's that time of year for us to make our plea to the MTBR community, for help running our booth at the Sea Otter!

    The Sea Otter is running Thursday April 15 - Sunday April 18. We can use help Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

    Preferred shifts each day are 2 hours and run:

    8am-10am
    10am-12noon
    12noon-2pm
    2pm-4pm

    Please email me at: <a href="mailto:gregg@mtbr.com?subject=MTBR_booth_dut y">gregg@mtbr.com</a>
    if you'd like to sign up and help! Email me with the subject line: MTBR Booth Duty and let me know when you'd be able to help (even if it's not for a full 2 hours, or if you run in between time, that's okay, too).

    If anyone will be around on Thursday, I'll take the help then, too, but Fri-Sun are the really busy days, with help on Sunday being extra important.

    Here's some pics of past booth duty/raffle managers Rut and Zonic. Having a loud voice and being able to raise your swag filled hands is all it takes, and these two MORE than qualify!

    Thank you,

    -gregg

    Sure, and I won't even take the swag. All I would need is a round trip ticket! If you can get me that....

    Your want of feeling that you don't fit in and are not one of the cool kids stems from your lack of self esteem.

    I suggest you rapidly seek counseling so you can make it to sea otter and come on a bike ride with many of us, and/or hang out.

    Gosh! Thanks! And can you stock it with ice cream?

    In all seriousness, if I were in the area I would love to. It could have been a possibility, but they keep moving the dates closer and closer to the FFTF. Anyway, if you can ever manage an MTBR contingent to FFTF maybe we could work out some kind of swag trade.

    Sounds like fun, can I bring MiniMe

    I'd probably be up for a shift. It would go over real well with the Mrs if I brought my 3 1/2 year old son with me. He can sling swag randomly while standing on the table or from my shoulders.

    That's what happens when you are cool, hip, and fit. At least that's what the other guy said.

    Nah, we're not picky about the age thing. Saturday is pretty much booked, but stop by the booth and ask for me, and I'll see if we can take you up on your offer to help!

    Yeah, bring the whole clan. Saturday is pretty much booked, but Friday and Sunday are still available at certain times.

    Email me if you can.

    Thanks to all who have signed up!

    A big thanks to all of you who have signed up already! It's a HUGE help to me, and your efforts will not go unrewarded or unrecognized.

    Saturday is already booked up, and Sunday is starting to fill.

    If there are still people interested in helping out, I could use the help on Friday or Thursday, if anyone is around then.

    I will be heading down tomorrow afternoon to setup the booth, since things seem to start earlier and earlier every year. I will be checking email periodically from the hotel.

    Even if you can't help out, be sure to stop by the booth and say, "Hi I'm Zonic_Pete from Passion!" (well, okay, don't say <i>that</i> but introduce yourself!)

    Beer flows Sunday.

    Raffles will be at 4pm Friday, 4pm Saturday, and 3pm Sunday! Great prizes!!

    See you there,

    MTBR booth is located on bridge between Expo and Registration

    Hey All,

    I'm off to setup the booth, which is in the same spot as last year.

    Booth is on the bridge/walk-way that leads from the main expo area to the registration tent.

    See you there and thanks again to all volunteers!
