ROLL CALL for SEA-MAX Volunteers
« on: July 03, 2011, 03:54:20 AM »


Thank you so much for those of you who offered to help with the Seattle Marine Aquarium Expo.

We are now finally geared up to start the volunteer process.

We can use up to about a dozen people each day but we certainly do not expect this to happen.

Here are a few job functions that we could use some help with:

- Set-Up and/or Tear-Down Helper: Very important function. Helps in getting the gear and equipment ready for the show, or in help tearing it down on Sunday.

- Exhibitor Liason: communicates with exhibitors and asks what can we can do to help (ie, load in, load out, breakdown of tanks, water, etc.)

- SEA-MAX Handyman: Jack-of-all-trades who can help out with any electrical problems, plumbing issues, etc.

- Children's FinZone Director: Similar to a substitute school teacher. Helps and directs kids activities such as drawing, games, contests, etc.)

- Children's Entertainer: We are looking for a artist/Face Painter, a professional Baloon artist, Magician, etc. or a recommendation could be just as helpful.

- Children's Touch Tank Teacher/Monitor: This overseer of the touch tank will introduce livestock and various marine species to young kids and even adults.

- Door/Exit/Entrance monitors: Basically watches over the crowd, building, and the entire venue to help make sure no losses or risks are happening

- Standard Helper/Driver/Courier: This is an all-around helper who can run errands for the staff and crew when needed and help with misc. things in between.

There are four basic time slots available:

1) Friday Setup: 12:00 Noon to 8:00PM
2) Saturday Show: 10:00AM to 6:00PM
3) Sunday Show: 10:00AM to 6:00PM
4) Sunday Teardown: 5:00PM to 12:00 Midnight

We are looking for volunteers who can work ONE FULL SHIFT, which then frees up their other day so they can hopefully attend and enjoy the show as a regular attendee.
The hardest work is obviously during setup and teardown, so.....
- Those who work the entire day for Friday Setup, will receive one free pass to get in either Saturday or Sunday's show
- Those who work the entire Sunday Evening Teardown, will share in some free give-aways (such as Children's Touch Tank livestock, etc.)
- Those who work the entire show Sat. or Sun. will be given something to show our appreciation too (pending)

PLEASE CONTACT US ASAP AT: to register as a volunteer Helper for SEA-MAX 2011!
Thanks again for your generosity and desire to help!

Warmest Regards,

Kevin T. Adams
