SO! What am I looking for exactly: Two, (Three if I can get them) “Captains” which are people to be “In Charge” of:
I will still wake up too early to cook and manage breakfast, and be around in general in case of craziness. Also, “in charge” means that you will be given full written instructions and suggested time-tables on how to serve your meals; all preparation possible will be done ahead of time! Mostly it will just be chopping / thawing / or preparing easy sides like rice.
But ultimately it will be your job to make the meal appear on time.
The person in charge of snacks (If I get one) just needs to occasionally peak in a little while after meals to make sure the drink containers are full enough, that the bread/fruit hasn’t run completely out, and that any dirty serving dishes left over on the tables are put in the dish washing window. (I will also be doing these duties with you the whole event, but in case either of us gets really into a mod or something, it’s best to tag-team it)
I’m looking for 2 (or 3) people familiar with the Kitchen on site, and confident in their ability to independently “figure things out” as minor things come up. But again, we’ll make this super easy on you; likely you’ll just be doing tasks like boiling noodles and heating casseroles. And if you do need me I will only be a walkie-talkie call away in case of difficulties. (we should actually have walkie talkies this time!)
We are looking for help with Food safety volunteers! The plan is that, each hour, someone checks on the food. The hardboiled eggs will be in two bowls and swapped from table to fridge once an hour so they never have a chance to sit too long and get too warm. Once an hour, leftovers that can spoil will be packed up and put away. Once, midway through a meal if applicable, the food will be refilled with fresh hot stuff from the kitchen and the lukewarm stuff put away in the fridge before it has a chance to sit too long out. All food will be time-stamped when it’s put out, so whoever is watching food safety at that turn of the hour can just check the cards to see if anything needs to be cycled out. We’ll have full, easy to follow written instructions, and I will be on-hand for questions. Ideally we’ll get a group of people who sign up for a rang of times with overlap so that when the turn of an hour comes up SOMEONE is free and pops into the tavern to check food times and it’s not just me, watching a clock all weekend and pausing play every hour to check the food.
I have an ambitious plan this year to bring my small refrigerator (and a collection of Tupperware) to the tavern and set it up next to the microwave over where the bar traditionally was to make claiming and reheating leftovers for yourselves more self-sufficient. We may just straight up keep the eggs in there if there’s space. We’ll have a big sign on the door letting y’all know.
Thank you all so much! Please feel free to ask any questions or anything here too!
 This is just a call to volunteer for ONE event, not a long-term commitment. Usually Meal prep is about 1.5-2 hours, and of course you can be rewarded in bonus CP or Ducats!
