Not really a new topic. The club has typically been run by a few, supported by a few more and watched / attended by many.

This is an outsiders view but I think the reason fewer people volunteer at swaps is they are more concerned about selling their stuff than the welfare of the club. At an auction your stuff is turned in at the beginning and one no longer has to worry about selling. They will get sold maybe not at the price you want but they are no longer yours to worry about.

Shawn, there were also a couple of pm's from "the regulars" looking to help as well. But overall, yes, the same 10 or so. And one non member from SW Michigan will be chipping in as well.

Negative Karma for rule enforcement is a badge of honor :)

115 views and 1 count it 1 non-board member volunteer. This is a club that absolutely relies on it's volunteer base. For some reason this clubs volunteer base is made up of about 8 to 10 people maybe even 12, but the demand that the rest of the members/non-members place on those 12 individuals is extraordinary.

I am more than willing to lead this club, but it becoming increasingly difficult with the lack of help and enthusiasm. Every event be it swaps, auctions, and even monthly meetings could use volunteers.

I expect to see more volunteers than just me, Bob, Matt, and Don.

Everone the Swaps and Auctions are always looking for volunteers. With that said you don't have to stay the whole day, unless you want. As a co-chair for the Auctions we are pleased to get a few hours of help. I know at the swaps most people that help out have jobs that allow you to walk the swap before and during. Shoot, just watching the doors to make sure everybody has paid is a big help. Plus, you get to meet other GCCA members.
Please let Bob know if you can help, even if its just an hour or two.
Thanks Don

53 views, and the only people offering to help are vendors already at the swap. Mark my words, the next swap will not be as large, nor will I go through the effort of securing a second room. Not trying to sound like an #+%#^ but its pathetic that all the people who DEMAND the swap and want bigger and better swaps, fade into the woodwork when it's time to pitch in and help. By the way, we do not have spring dates or space secured yet. Good luck.

Rant over
