GREETER MANUAL / Greeters Info Collection

S Saskia Public Seen by 239

The greeters are going to point out important information to new arrivals. If your team wants something to be mentioned by the greeters, let us know here!

Greeters are going to welcome new arrivals, perform the virgin ritual, point people to their camps or possible free-camping spots if necessary as well as towards important structures (welfare, first aid...).

Greeters explain and in some cases demonstrate the principles for new arrivals, especially virgins.

We're looking for input especially from:
- The temple team, especially in absence of a guardian lead
- The ceremony team
- Welfare, Security & First Aid about MUST MENTIONS
- Volunteers / Arbeitsamt

The amount of information the greeters give is heavily dependent on the influx of people arriving at the gate. If you lifted some decision-work from our shoulders by pre-prioritizing your information, we'd be glad.
Possible prioritizing stages are:

  • Must mention for everyone
  • Should be mentioned to virgins
  • Super cool to mention but only if there's no time pressure (e.g. fun things that are also mentioned in the program but happen soon)

Google Doc for you to comment and add to

* There are plenty of dangerous areas on site. Watch your step! We will try to light everything at dark. Be responsible.
* Watch out for each other & better safe than sorry. If you see something, if you are not sure about something - contact a Wonderer (Blue vests) or go to Welfare. Better safe than sorry.
* All the relevant info regarding the lakes.
* Quiet times resolution (to be discussed in the relevant thread)

Anything important to add? @stefanapel @franzi6

Thanks, Daniel! Nothing comes right now in my mind to add, except for telling people about where to find first aid and medics by help of the map, but that has been already mentioned at the start of the thread.
Not of my business, but: maybe something about general fire making rules and the importance of LNT especially at this place since it is a huge and complicated-to-seek area?

From the Wonderers, we only have this to say as Greeters Info:
- to everyone: sign up for shifts! (and better if they're Wonderers shifts :laughing: )
- to virgins: that Wonderers exists at all and are recognizable with blue vests.

Balance of Principles
I do see and read a lot of unbalanced principles. while there are some totally on focus like concent and moop others are ignored, not mentioned at all and even more not filked with life. This is a misbalance in my pov. I would also in addition see advices as a reccomendation and less then „du musst, du darfst nicht, ..)

Everybody! Greeter manual is finalized to this point. Make your last suggestions before it goes out via mail today!

Edits afterwards can be done, of course, even on side. But it would be nice to have it as complete as possible.

Calling Mothership, Independence, volunteering and all the others who might want to have an opinion. :)
