It's that time again! We're looking for volunteers to help with the general operations of this year's Jamboree! Keep in mind that these duties are all very flexible and nothing is set in stone. This is just a list of the general tasks that will help the event run smoothly. If you are interested or have any questions please reply to this thread!

For Setup there are:
  • Gather fire wood.
  • Town Supply Runs.
  • General Cleaning.

For during the Jamboree:
  • Kitchen Clean up Crew
  • Garbage Duty (switching out garbage bags, taking out bar trash, etc.)
  • Morning Town Run Drivers*
  • Slab City Exploration Drivers**
  • General security
  • Quick Morning Library Cleaning (Clean Quickly, Get Fed Faster!)
For after the Jamboree:
  • Kitchen Clean Up Crew
  • Garbage Haulers
  • Recycling Haulers
  • Library Deep Cleaning; sweeping, shelving, dusting, surface wiping, etc.
  • Campsite cleaners

*Morning Drivers will need to have a vehicle and leave at approximately 8am on Friday, Saturday Sunday. To avoid prolonged waiting we're asking that everyone who wants to go into town be ready to leave at 8am

**Volunteers will need to have a vehicle and be willing to leave at the specified times.

Ill be there for sure to help out. Cant wait for my 3rd year going to this. Its always a blast. Also for volunteering, due to the fact the chamber of commerce is officially no longer able to give free water, having people who can go on large water hauls would be really important too.

Very excited for the Jambo! I had a great time at last year's Jambo and will absolutely be there for this one. I will come with a vehicle, and can make supply runs and do anything else that requires a vehicle. I'm also down to help out with anything that is needed, cleaning, cooking, repairs to the library, etcetera.

I will certainly need room in my bed for goods and dirty kids and stuff, but if there is a need for particular battery-powered tools or hand tools, lemme know. Circular saw, fein tool, angle grinder, sawzall, drill/impact, etc. Anything else I have requires electricity.
I can also bring screws, nails, what else?

Think about potential fixit projects and we'll see if I can bring the necessary tools and/or materials.
Maybe just message me, so we don't clog up this thread with logistical details.

We are not going to be worrying about any sort of building or maintenance projects during the party, as there will be a lot of other things to be dealing with. Andrew might have some better ideas about things that may need to get quick fixes before the party, but he will likely have all the main stuff taken care of, and I'll be back well before the party as well. There are a few larger projects that we'll be working on after the party and through the winter season as we always do.

Sounds reasonable. I'd love to arrive early and stay late help with shit.
I guess I'll know more precisely as it gets closer.
I didn't even have a tent when I went last time, I'm excited to offer up tools/services this time. Thanks for the heads up, though.

@CaptainCassius basically we need people with vehicles to transport other people around slab city as well as the surrounding salton sea areas. Drivers will not need to be familiar with the area, just willing to be chauffeurs.

We're going to need drivers and vehicles for our traditional exploratory outing to somewhere neat near slabs during the weekend, which is yet to be decided, and also for the daily supply run on all three days, which will probably be done in the late morning.

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$20.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $20.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $20.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $20.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $20.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
