Conbravo approaches us the weekend of July 29th-31st . Epoch Toronto Foundation will be able to represent itself via table space, panels, troll bowl and programs. Conbravo treats us really well and I would like to offer fantastic presence and programs to show appreciation and to celebrate our 20th season.

Things on my to do list include:

-Volunteer made armbands for troll bowl .These will need to be made at make it bee sessions. Jobs such as cutting fabric, creating an epoch-larp.ca stencil, sewing, and cleaning will be needed.
-Donation of a new black or navy blue display sized (read huge and not diningroom) table cloth for our con bin.
-Volunteers to walk the con as well as greet and manage our table space, setup and take down.
-Troll bowl team of announcers and referees.
-Other program submissions, such as introduction mods, dramatizations of epoch scenes, or staged combat/dancing/games/roleplay visual demonstrations.
-Panel Hosts for the topics of introduction to larping, character creation, garb creation
-A chauffeur willing to drive con bins and marketing to and from the event.
-Hosts willing to let people crash on their couch or floor.

July 15th is the cut off day for any creative submissions.

Similar to guidelines with social expectations all volunteers will be expected to conduct themselves in an exemplary fashion and promote healthy growth for our community. You will be sent an email or pm closer to the event granting a code of conduct, schedule and information on getting to the con and anything we will be doing there. Any form of volunteering will garner you crps, I tend to be generous.

If you are interested in volunteering in any way please email me at Marketing@epoch-larp.ca

Thanks all!

Just a note, June 9th at Bampot Social (201 Harbord Street, 6pm) will also be a Costume Swap!

This means that individuals looking to trade, buy or sell pieces of their own collections may attend and do so, still being expected to make a purchase from Bampot. Individuals should be bringing no more than one bag of garb, to ensure we do not clutter up the room. Items such as clothing, accessories, shoes, and make-up are great options. Before you pack anything consider its quality, and cleanliness. Be prepared to take anything not sold or traded home.
