Put them here but discuss elsewhere please. This should just be a list!!

And please read what has already been listed so that we don't have a dozen of the same thing as that's not helpful

There is one but doesn't appear to be visible as I have been moving lists across. Paul please can you check this? Thank you.

No plans to make it public.
It is designed for planning our Volunteers to slot in at shows and can sometimes contain sensitive information that can often change very quickly and only results in endless speculation - that then spreads further afield.

We need to contain it to concentrate on "organising." Otherwise, it just becomes another forum where you can't see the wood for the trees with too many posts!

Hence why we like to "invite" people in as and when they are needed and become an approved Volunteer for a particular show.

Just because anyone is not in yet, does not mean you will not be. You need to volunteer your services to the Regional Club Team and then be selected. Due to the experiences of restricted passes so far in 2010, as per last year - Volunteers need to await to be called up for duty. We do not have the resources to phone, email and contact everyone who might be interested ahead of a show with a Yes/No decision.

Often, as in the case of Farnborough, we had over 20 names available to us and only 4 available spaces!!

Regards,
Ian.

However, the Event Managers do try whenever possible to contact by email or telephone prior to events - we recognise that only a proportion of the volunteer pool uses the forum.

Agree, I also have not yet managed to find any way of viewing someones profile. What is the point of writing your interests, hobbies and expertise on there (if any  :?  ) if no one can see it  :?   :?    :x

If it\'s pink and sparkly it\'s probably mine....
