If you registered last year, your account is already active. Log in above to request and/or manage your shift(s). A password reset feature is available if you have forgotten yours.

This is a self-managed system. You, and you alone, can track/change/remove your volunteer shift request(s). Event staff cannot facilitate the aforementioned activities on your behalf. Do not create multiple accounts in an effort to secure multiple shifts. The volunteer list will be reviewed, and anyone found creating multiple accounts to secure multiple shifts will be removed from *ALL* shifts. Shifts for this event are in high demand. We will activate the ability to add a second shift if, and only if, the need arises. Thank you for your cooperation. Javascript is required for the Volunteer Registration System. Please make sure it is enabled in your browser.

Need A Password Reset?

No worries! It happens to all of us.

Simply enter your e-mail address below, then click the RESET button. If an account is found, a new password will be sent to you right away. You will be returned to the login page upon clicking the RESET button. If you created multiple accounts, it is likely the additional accounts have been disabled/removed, as that isn't permitted and just isn't very fair to others.
