Volunteering

This if for all the volunteers...whos volunteering where and whos doing what?

I'm volunteering at the NJ regional...they say that I'm the pit announcer but when I inquired as to what my duties were they said this: "You work as of part of a team with the MC to energize the teams and spectators, generate and maintain interest, enth., and excitement throughout the matches. Announce play-by-play commentary for each match. Manage flow of match play and maintaining the pace of the event."

So I assume that this means that I'm the announcer for the event...if this is the case...WOOHOO if not could someone please tell me what the real deal is? I'd appreciate it.

Re: Volunteering

You should* be able to find me at the following events

Week 1 - Finger lakes Regional
Week 2 - UTC New England Regional
Week 3 - Chesapeake Regional
Week 4 - NYC Regional
Week 5 - Greater Toronto Regional

Week "6" - Championship Event [in Atlanta, Ga.]

I will be working in a variety of roles this year. Mainly though if you would like to find me, look near the Scorekeepers table.

*Just because i will be there doesn't mean you will be able to find me.

Re: Volunteering

I was signed up for Palmetto and the Championship, but I scratched Palmetto in order to help 1293. If 1293, by some random miracle, goes to Atlanta, I'll probably hunt for a replacement there, too.

Sounds like you are the GAME/EVENT ANNOUNCER! (you're special!)
That is a swell job; take care of that voice!

I'm hoping to volunteer for the Long Island Regional, if not I'll be at the NJ Regional.
Then I'll be at the NYC Regional.
Hope to see some CD folks!

I hate to crack down on your hopes, but I'd double check with the volunteer coordinator about the job description of "pit announcer." As far as I'm am aware; roles such as play-by-play Announcer and MC are selected by Regional committees long ahead of time because such roles require a certain amount of training. In addition, Regional committees are really selective about who they put behind a microphone on the field - they prefer people they know, trust, and have experience (experience is becoming rare these days, but it's funny they won't train more people. They just spread the same amount of people thinner every year).

I'm an "on call" volunteer for Saturday of BAE, refereeing UTC, a safety advisor for Philadelphia, and working the FIRST Robotics Conferences in Atlanta.

Re: Volunteering

Erin, don't forget that you promised me your Segway for Championships. I will be there looking for you. I will also be announcing at Rochester, Pittsburgh, Detroit, Waterloo ant Greater Toronto Regional.

Pit announce is not the same as game announce. It is still a demanding job. Erin is right when she said that special training is required. If you listen to me announce then you should do the exact opposite. I blow my voice out at every event and am now paying the piper. I have had a sore throat for more than a year. If you were to be a Game Announcer then you would have received an email from Blair H with training suggestions.

Re: Volunteering

I was going to be primary scorekeeper at Lone Star, but due to our main mentor/coach moving to Abu Dahbi, I've been bumped up to coach at all our events. Nothing like GLR for your inaugural stint as a coach, lemme tell ya.

Thats not entirly true, Erin, acctually its wrong because according to an email sent to me last monday (feb 21) I will most likely be one of the emcee's at the NJ Regional, and that i would be getting information about some web-based training for my postion

and this is from the FIRST VIMS website :

that was what i got when i clicked on the link about Master of Ceremonies

I just found out I would be able to go to BAE the other day, and thus didn't sign up until then. I still haven't gotten anything back, but I'll be there on Saturday anyway.

Re: Volunteering

I know that Karthik will be training for MC at Waterloo with Blair and then I believe that he will be MC in Toronto. It is true that there are limited MC's out there. Don't forget that MC and announcers carry the flow of the event. If you have bad on or the other then there can be problems. It takes a lot to keep things alive and well for 2 days. Check out Blair or Dave V if you want to see how hard these guys work. Mark L has to take breaks between matches because he is so intense. I once thought that the MC didn't do much till I worked with them. Blair and Dave I know do a lot of prep work before even coming to an event.
