2h - 4h shift looks enough for me, 8 h is too long

last year, we had 3 hours shifts and it worked quite well. It also gives people the opportunity / motivation to do two different services, e.g. 3 hours rangers / 3 hours welfare.

we had the kickoff of this year's welfare team
yesterday night and 3 hours would fit perfectly with current planning for extra volunteers.

It would be nice to at least have some food offering for volunteers in terms of motivation. If no proper kitchen available, maybe just some snacks?

Hi, Rangers shifts are 4 hours long this year, and we will be filling 66 normal shifts and 6 lead shifts.

@verocarsala Deine Mudda will take care of feeding volunteers during build. I'm not sure yet about strike.
Also I understood that there is a need for a volunteer kitchen during the Burn itself, at least to feed the security guys (6 persons?) and at best for volunteers like rangers.

From my experience in recent years, 8h is a bit too much, as you also need to dedicate a couple of hours before/after to prepare, rest, recover etc, so it's really taking the whole day. 3/4h is ideal. 2h is a bit too short in my opinion.
Thanks for doing this!

Hi Dani yes....i have already changed that and I think shifts will be settled once every lead fills out the form and let me know how many shifts need to be covered. I also think 2 hours is gonna be too short. 4 hours sounds fear. Although I'm gonna let that decision to the ones that require volunteers and I'm gonna work on the recruitment and doing my best to make that happen. Hoping everyone comes up with realistic wishes and thinking also what would be doable. Since it's gonna be a pita to recruit 12 people for 2 hours shifts just to cover 24 hours. But well by now I think everybody has an idea of what is ideal and what is indeed possible.

Hey @verocarsala - is there a chance you could post the spreadsheet in here? I will work with Henrik to get a newsletter started that can include the volunteers info here =)


Veroca R. Sala Thu 25 Apr 2019 8:10PM
