Schlock Shipping Event June 8 9
This is the pair of work days during which a horde of minions volunteers show up to help package and send out 1300 packages full of Schlock books. We always schedule two days, but for the past three shipping events the workers have been so amazing that there was nothing left to do on the second day.
Who: Any Schlock fan who is either local to Utah, or willing to travel at their own expense.
Where: At Dragon's Keep 260 N University Ave in Provo
When: Starting at 9 AM running until 4 PM on June 8. If there is work left to do, we'll start again at 9 AM on June 9.
What: The Scrapyard of Insufferable Arrogance Shipping Event. Most of the work will be putting books and slipcases into boxes and sticking labels onto the top. There will be laughter and free food. Volunteers will also get to pick through our scratch and dent box to take something home with them. We do need a couple of volunteers with trucks who are willing to show up at our house at 8 AM on June 8 to help us haul massive piles of stuff down to Dragon's keep.
Why: Because putting all those books in boxes all by myself would take a really, really long time.
If you are interested in volunteering for this event, please email schlockmercenary at gmail.com with the word "volunteer" in the subject line. It would be helpful if the body of the email lists when you're likely to be coming. Some of you have already emailed me to volunteer. I'm pretty sure I've got you listed, but it would be a good idea to email again to make sure you're on the mailing list. If you don't want to email, but still want to come, feel free to show up on the 8th. If you only have an hour or two, that is fine just stop by. I don't recommend showing up on the 9th unless you've read an announcement that there is still work to be done.
Have any questions? email schlockmercenary at gmail.com and I'll clarify. Thanks everyone!
