The sponsorship application window begins on 30 June, and will close on Wednesday 13 July 2011.

If you would like to apply for sponsorship, you must email volunteers@cryptozoic.com. Please put “2011 DMF Poznan Sponsorship” in the subject line.

Here is some useful information:
• There are multiple positions needed. There are 2 day positions and 4 day positions. Two day positions will be primarily working the Darkmoon Faire on Saturday and Sunday. The four day positions are for public events/league, more casual events (less stressful!).
There will be 3 sponsorships for this event. Full or partial sponsorships will be provided a shared hotel room from 24 August and leaving on 29 August 2011 for 4 day positions and 26 August and leaving on 29 August for 2 day positions. You may apply to be provided a flight or other travel arrangements, flight sponsorships are only available to those working 4 day positions. The last is badge sponsorship. This is for those that have their travel and lodging covered and only need a badge. Those who do not require sponsorship for their travel are more likely to be accepted. • You will be provided lunch _or_ a small stipend. No other costs will be covered.
• Judges are expected to wear nice, clean black slacks with black shoes. Additionally, you will be issued two Cryptozoic judge shirts if you have not already received one (from working a previous event). If you fail to meet the dress code, you will be asked to remedy the situation and if you cannot, you will not be asked to attend other shows on behalf of Cryptozoic. Non-judge staff will be expected to wear nice, clean blue jeans (with no holes, not tattered, no rips) and a Cryptozoic Event Staff shirt. If you have not received one yet, you will be given two.

Here are the requirements:

• Must have extensive experience conducting effective and efficient administrative tasks (Scorekeeping, Registration, League staff). OR Must have judge experience.
• Must be 18 years of age or older.
• Willing to work the entire event.
• Able to judge long hours. Days will be 8-10 hours.
• Able to lift heavy objects and perform other physically demanding jobs relating to tournament setup.
• Must be friendly and have a positive attitude.
• Willing and able to assist the event staff as required with additional duties, which may include registration, table clothes, floor maintenance, radio check-in/out, breaking down of event materials, packing pallets at the end of the event, etc…
• Must be able to respond to emails within 48 hours with regards to travel arrangements.

Here is what we need in your email:

Please send your sponsorship request to volunteers@cryptozoic.com, include “DMF Poznan Sponsorship” in the subject line.
• Your name.
• Your CZE ID.
• What position you want to staff – 2 day or 4 day
Level of sponsorship you require; Full, Partial (flight/travel or room), badge or volunteer. Please remember that you are more likely to be accepted if you are able to cover your travel and lodging.
• Would you prefer to work administration, judge, or demo on the booth?
• The day you are able to depart to the event.
• Your email address.
• Your shirt size and if you have not received one yet.
• Your date of birth.
• Your complete mailing address and phone number.
• List of events you have worked for Cryptozoic.
• Airport you would fly out of if flight sponsorship is needed.
• Emergency contact information and drug allergies.
• Do you have the necessary Passports?
• Any special requirements you have.
• Your CZEV# (if you are a Champion)
• Remember to include the name of event that you are requesting sponsorship for in the subject line.

What is expected?

• You will bring four days’ worth of appropriate attire (depending on which staff position you are applying for 2 or 4).
• You will either conduct administrative duties, judge, or conduct demos on the booth (depending on staffing requirements and sponsorship requests) Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. This will require long days with almost no breaks.
• You will prepare for the event thoroughly. If you are judging, you can start by reviewing all available rules, procedures and policies.

What is NOT paid for (partial list of common assumptions)?

• Food (Each person will receive either lunch or one small stipend each day).
• Taxi fares, bus fares, parking, etc.
• Additional room costs (room service, movies, laundry, etc).
• Ticket change fees (if you change your ticket, you pay all related fees).

Hotel Info:

• If you receive hotel sponsorship, you will be sharing a hotel room with at least one other person working the event.
• Spouses, friends, volunteers, players, significant others are not permitted.
• Your hotel will be paid for starting the day before the event and last until the day after the event. If you wish to stay longer or arrive earlier, you must arrange for this yourself.

Judge Testing:

• There will be Artisan and Expert level testing at this event.

Important Notes:

• This is not like a vacation, this is like work. It can be very rewarding and valuable, but it is hard work.
• If you are not chosen, don't take it personally. There are a limited number of sponsorships available. Again, if you would like to increase your chances of being accepted, covering your own flight and hotel will go a long way.

If you are only able to attend for Saturday and Sunday, please put that in your application. We are taking a small amount of judges/volunteers that are only able to work Sat and Sun. These staff will receive less gifts overall.

Please send your sponsorship request to volunteers@cryptozoic.com. The deadline to apply is Friday 10 June 2011 .

Since the DMF takes place at a convention, it means that CZE will only pay for your badge to get in.

Thanks now I understand, application send ;)

07-19-2011, 01:40 AM
How long it usually takes to get an information if you are "Teh chosen one" or not?

07-19-2011, 03:12 AM

07-26-2011, 01:50 PM

it'd be nice to know if I should find myself a hotel or not

08-10-2011, 07:25 AM
I'm going anyway so I'm just waiting.
The question is - should I abandon my block deck and think about core again?
Well I'll copy-paste something in that case ^^'
