Volunteer! Have a blast!
Every year hundreds of people come together to make Norwescon a success. Last year, 142 attendees donated a total of 620 hours of their time in between the panels and events they attended, to help keep the convention running smoothly. This averages to just over 4 hours per member.
As you begin to plan your convention experience for this next year, please consider giving back to the convention a little of your time.So whether you have 30 minutes to spare, or a few hours to kill, come on down to the volunteer lounge and lend a hand. It's what makes Norwescon such a success every year!

GAMING: The Scheduled Gaming signup forms are already on the website, so if you want to run a card or board game (or many) fill out the form. We have upgraded GM status this year for those who qualify by signing up early. We are also looking for volunteers to staff the gaming room during the convention.
EXTENDED GAMING: We are looking for:
- A dealer to run the poker tournament on Saturday during the convention.
- Someone to sponsor/run Magic: The Gathering Tournaments. It would be wonderful to have a sanctioned tournament.
- If you are interested in running a LARP, please contact us immediately in order to reserve your space!

Norwescon is a science, science fiction and fantasy convention that takes place on Easter Weekend each year. We are an all-volunteer organization and always have room for more dedicated volunteers. Without members, though, there would be no reason to hold a convention; thank you for your support!
