HalloweeM 42: WeeM, The Universe, and Everything

October 26 – 29, 2017

Volunteer for WeeM Now!

Volunteering offers you a great opportunity to show off your towel, serve as an official sandwich-maker, uncover who really runs the Universe, and avoid the Vogons! Volunteer at HalloweeM and earn your Volunteer Pin — the Golgafrinchans will be so jealous! It’s the volunteers that make WeeM so special. In addition to the organizers, we need people to help us. There is much to do and you get to meet some of the nicest people (afterall, Mensans who volunteer are the best Mensans). Consider volunteering for any of the following:

  • Set up at the hotel on Thursday
  • Work in hospitality to make sure food is available throughout the day as well as at mealtimes and there are plenty of beverages
  • Registration
  • Help check that the people at WeeM are indeed registered (wearing their badges for the appropriate day) and meet the age restriction at functions like Pretentious Drinking
  • Greet speakers, show them where to go and ensure they have the equipment they need for their program
  • Tidying up of Games Room
  • Tearing down on Sunday and packing everything up

Volunteers get the coveted WeeM pin (new design every year) and also earn tickets for the Volunteer Raffle. People working the wee hours earn double tickets! And this year, while the supply lasts, volunteers will get a "Don’t Panic!" towel, so you definitely want to sign up early. Check out our Volunteer Form to see the different positions and time slots available. There are sign-up sheets near registration for those who decide to contribute any time during WeeM. We really do appreciate all those who pitch in. It wouldn't be such a great RG if it weren't for all that people do.


The latest Programs At A Glance (PAAG) (as of Tuesday, October 10th) gives you an idea of when many of the tournaments and programs will be scheduled and helps you avoid volunteering during a time slot that may conflict with something you wish to attend. As always, there may be last minutes changes due to cancellations and/or conflicts.
