Helping Out

There are lots of tasks going on in the background to make an event like ScaleACT run smoothly – if you’ve an hour or so to spare, we’d love your help!

  • Setup on Friday is expected to run from 1600 to 1800, but will be confirmed closer to the event.
  • The rostered positions cover slots from 0900 to 1630 on Saturday and 1000 to 1530 on Sunday.
  • Clean up on Sunday will start as soon as possible after the event closes.

Please fill in the following to let us know how you can be involved…

The Jobs:

Friday Setup: This normally runs from 1600 to 1800/1900… this involves a bit of lugging around of tables, chairs etc as well as some general prep work (eg putting signs, setting up displays etc).

Front Door: The Public Entry door has to be manned on Saturday and Sunday. The Front Door roster runs in 1 hour slots & is an easy job – welcome the visitors, accept entry fees, and smile a bit 🙂

Judging: Anyone can help us judge – don’t worry if you’ve never judged before, we’ll pair you up with an experienced judge. Judging is the very best way to see some top notch models close up – it’s a lot of fun and you always learn something new. For those of you who are entering a competition model, we’d really like you to help out with the judging – don’t leave it to ‘someone else’.

Swap & Sell: The Swap & Sell roster runs in 1 hour slots & is pretty simple – punters will bring over a model or three and thrust money at you. You simply tick the model off a list and shove the money in a tin – there’ll even be a calculator on hand for those who don’t trust theirs mathematical skills.

Build Table: This is one of the most enjoyable ‘jobs’ at ScaleACT. We set up a table or two, you bring a model/tools with you; spend an hour or two building and chat to anyone who is interested. The Build Table roster runs in 1 hour slots but if you want a longer stint (to perhaps get something tricky done) then simply note it in the Comments area.

Cleanup: Many hands make light work… tear down happens very quickly… help clear the tables, chairs & paraphernalia away and it’s Beer-O-Clock for all!

Please use the comments box if you’d like to add any extra information, eg: “I’m only available from 1200 to 1400 on Sunday.”, “I’m happy to do three shifts on Saturday.”, “I can do any time Saturday except 1100-1300.” etc…
