The Sunset Of Romanticism
How beautiful a new sun is when it rises,
flashing out its greeting, like an explosion!
Happy, whoever hails with sweet emotion
its descent, nobler than a dream, to our eyes!
I remember! I've seen all, flower, furrow, fountain,
swoon beneath its look, like a throbbing heart
Let's run quickly, it's late, towards the horizon,
to catch at least one slanting ray as it departs!
But I pursue the vanishing God in vain:
irresistible Night establishes its sway,
full of shudders, black, dismal, cold:
an odour of the tomb floats in the shadow,
at the swamp's edge, feet faltering I go,
bruising damp slugs, and unexpected toads.
By Charles Baudelaire

Our front desk team works in the Security Office handling walk-in reports, lost and found, checking in and out of equipment. Also, provides backup coverage as a call receiver.
Dispatcher - 2
Dispatcher 2s are the backbone of the dispatch staff, they commonly perform the duties of a ConCom Dispatcher, during any shift, and can work as the Security Dispatch during 'non-peak hours'.
Assists with overseeing all convention events security staffing needs and coordination. Assists with ensuring that proper staffing levels are met to cover all convention events. Assists with wrangling back-up units if/as needed during con.
These people do the stuff and make things happen (or not happen as the case may be) all over the place. See also description for Patrol Staff. Needs to check into dispatch or security office at least once per hour (in person, possibly via radio).
The patrol staff are the eyes and ears of, and deterrent for problems during, the convention. Unarmed patrols help to keep the peace, address crowd control issues; assist with lost/found items/people; noise superseding insanity levels; help to maintain a civility level among con drunkards after hours; assist little old peoples across crowded hallways; and refrain from running in the halls.
Assistant Photographers are responsible for photographing convention panels, events, and attendees. They will work a 3- to 5-hour shift each day. Photographing outside of the assigned shift is not required, though certainly allowed (and possibly even encouraged).
Help us repeat the success of years past and volunteer!
Come on down to the volunteer lounge and lend a hand.
Head of Volunteers
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!
