If you want to volunteer at the booth you MUST answer the following 3 questions :

1 ] Do you have a CalGuns BLUE Polo ?

2 ] If not ,what SIZE do you wear ?
The CGN Polo is $20.00 and you get it at the start of your shift.

3 ] Which DAY and SHIFT do you prefer ?

We now have LADIES CGN shirts in a soft teal color.

I'm interested in volunteering. I can volunteer Sunday 8 to 1. I'm a noob to all this so what do I need to do? I don't have a calguns polo and I'm a size large.

I lifted this from the San Diego thread Hoss-hk posted for the new guys wanting to come out and Volunteer a few hours of your time.

Vick
=============================================

How do I attend as a new volunteer?

Please arrive at least 30 minutes before your shift to check in with the Booth Coordinator (or as requested) and get your CGN Polo. Individuals are to put on a friendly face and be approachable. Avoid conversing with one another if the general public is present at the booth. Face your audience and avoid having your backs to the public.

1. Please, NO SMOKING, NO DRINKING OF ALCOHOL.
2. Wear the official blue polo – CGN T-shirts are not acceptable.
3. No hats.
3. AM volunteers to arrive in advance to help with set up before the show opens to the public. At least 30 -45 minutes
4. PM volunteers to assist with tear down towards the last 30 minutes of the show on Sunday.
5. Calguns materials are to be displayed on the table; personal items are to be stored below the table or out of sight.
6. ALL guns MUST be inspected and tied, and have a “Not For Sale “ on them. Usually rack has not for sale sign
7. Law enforcement personnel should be treated with respect at all times regardless of the personal views of volunteers. Anyone violating this rule will be asked to leave, sans polo, and your $20.00 will be refunded.
8. Stay off your phone.

Talking Points
• You are not an attorney and cannot offer legal advice, but you can be open in answering general firearms questions. If someone has a question that you cannot answer, have him ask it on the forum -- that is what the site is for.
• Offer to discuss your experiences and why you enjoy being a member of Calguns.
• Stress that Calguns supports the gun rights of all. Steer clear of discussing topics that may be “inflammatory”.
• You are responsible for what you say. Be careful! There can and will be people there who may try to trip you up or who think they know it all and will challenge you. Giving no answer is better than giving a wrong answer. The default answer to any question you don't know should be to refer them to the booth coordinator or refer them to CGN where they can post their question and get the answer from one of the "legal beagles" available there.
• It is also not uncommon for someone to approach you and attempt to lure you into an illegal firearm transaction. Do not get involved in any such activity and if the person persists, contact Law Enforcement. The booth coordinator does not keep bail money on his person.

I've been attending each show for years and the last time CGN had a booth at the Cow Palace was when Sheriff Palmer was in town - November 2010 IIRC. This is good to see.

I'll see if I can volunteer, but I'm definitely stopping by.

What kind of work do you need volunteers for?

Any chance you can work the 1-4 shift on Sunday? If not, I would be happy to try to get you on staff at the next show.

Don't want to see you excluded, but "Noob" volunteers should be learning as much as talking so that they are better able to work the booth in the future. Therefore, more than one per shift impacts efficiency at spreading the message during the show.

I will coordinate for both shifts on Sunday. I cannot be there on Saturday, so we need a GGSSA person as coordinator for that day.

There are still a lot of spots that need to be filled in order for us to have a booth at the show. We need to fill the spots in the next 2.5 days or we will not have a booth.

I'd be interested and could recruit several members each show but we would all be noobs. And as Gryff mentioned there needs to be more veterans so the noob slots are limited for those of us that are interested.

I would like to volunteer, but only available in the 8am-1pm, and I'm a Calguns Noob... I have worked booths at Cow Palace Gun Show, but with friends who are vendors.
