Sounds fun. I'm in.

Since you guys have expanded into other products and games, have you thought about having some volunteer choice gift packages? Cause you may have some very good volunteers that love your games but are not into wowtcg. Like giving time just loot cards for wowtcg and offering copies of you other games in place of all the wowtcg boxes and promos. You could even throw in old exclusive packs from your games that you normally had to get from other conventions or preordering the game.

This is a very good suggestion, I will consider it for upcoming events.

Compensation for Origins has been clarified. Volunteers will receive one box of product per day worked. The main hall may not be open on Wednesday, so applicants may only be working four out of the five days of Origins.
