Join the Time Lord Fest Team!
“Time Lord Fest – Tampa Bay 2018,” “Time Lord Fest – Jacksonville 2018,” and the very special “New Year’s Eve Time Lord Ball” will be discussed and how YOU can help out!
ALL ARE WELCOME!!!
We have a team that includes members from St. Petersburg, Tampa, Jacksonville, Orlando, Georgia, and even the UK….so all are welcome!
We will have a Jacksonville meeting after the two Tampa events are complete. Yet, no matter which city you are in, you are welcome to attend and welcome to help out at any of our events!
Question: Do volunteers get into Time Lord Fest – Tampa Bay 2018 for free?
Answer: Of course!
Question: How long do we need to volunteer for free admission?
Answer: One morning or afternoon shift AND set up and/or a tear down shift.
Question: How long is a shift?
Answer: Shifts are between 3-4 hours in length. Many overlap. If you choose to only work one shift, you will have the rest of the day to play at the festival and enjoy the Doctor Who fun as a patron. The Saturday night set up, Sunday morning set up, and Sunday morning tear down shifts tend to be an hour and a half long.
Question: May I volunteer all day?
Answer: Of course! This will be our 9th Time Lord Fest in Tampa or Jacksonville…
and our 12 Time Lord Fest, altogether. Each year, more and more volunteers choose to be on duty the whole day. The TLF volunteers, we call them “Companions,” grow closer each year. Many people love working behind the scenes and take part in the secrets that help make each festival magical for so many Doctor Who fans.
Question: What does a volunteer do?
Answer: Volunteers do all sorts of things! They assist the celebrity guests, help check people in, help facilitate the costume contest, answer questions, take part in and help manage panels/games/events, and so much more! We actively cross train, so you will have the chance to do a lot! Yet, most importantly, volunteers help bring joy to and merriment the hundreds of other Whovians attending the festival!
Question: How many meetings are you required to attend?
Answer: Two meetings are the minimum number of volunteer meetings we kindly ask you to attend to be a Time Lord Fest – Tampa Bay 2018 volunteer. Yet, those who attend rather a few meetings will be the ones who are asked to take on the more important and exciting opportunities. We also STRONGLY encourage volunteers to attend the last meeting before the festival.
