Why should I volunteer?
Our gratitude! Truly, Dragon Fall can’t succeed without the hard work and loyal support of our volunteers. Year after year, our volunteers make Dragon Fall very special. We only ask a little.. We try to ask for only a little of your time to ensure that you still have plenty of gaming time. We’re fun! We at Dragon Fall like to think so, but we try to keep our volunteer demands light, so that you’ll come back for more.
Meet new, exciting people! If you’re new to Dragon Fall or gaming cons, volunteering is a great way to meet other gamers. Contributing to Dragon Fall feels great! There is a real feeling of pride in giving back to your gaming community. Trust us, you won’t regret it. Loot! Of sorts, see below.
At 6 hours of service, your badge is compensated.
Notes on Badge Compensation
Pay for your badge onsite or during preregistration normally. When you complete your hours, we’ll refund your paid badge and you can keep your volunteer badge. Can’t prepay? No problem. We can schedule your time for early in the convention rather than having you prepay.
At 12 hours of service, you get a Dragon Fall t-shirt, while supplies last, or refunding your already purchased t-shirt!
We typically work in 2-hour increments, so it’s possible to split up your volunteering into several blocks or do it all at once. The volunteer coordinator will work with you to schedule your volunteer hours. At the start of your shift, we’ll provide you with a volunteer badge.
