Hello OPX Volunteers!
Sorry for my late post, but I literaly have just now recovered enough to think straight. I've read all your posts on other threads and thank you very much for all your compliments. It was a very hard job this year. A lot of you know that I had to put my 20 year old kitty to sleep the Friday before I left for CIV which put me out on an emotional ledge even before we started the madness. And it took every ounce of energy that I had to get through to the last day. So let me apologize here if I yelled at you, snapped at you or gave you a dirty look - please don't take it personally, it was a very stressful situation.
But my efforts mean nothing without you guys. At the end, including walk-up volunteers there were 380 of you working the auto hall. That is a huge number of people and every one of you was required - it was a tight ship, let me tell you. Be assured that every duty assigned was required to make a positive and efficient experience for our customers and I heard nothing but fantastic compliments on the service that you provided.
And never have I heard such compliments from the signing guests THEMSELVES about the volunteers. I had many, many guests request their volunteer for the duration of their shifts. That is the highest compliment of all in my book. Excellent work guys!
A great round of applause is needed for each and every one of you and I thank you with all my heart for working hard and working well. Be assured that you have been marked in my database as great volunteers and I would be happy to have you all again at any of our future events.
Some of you even caught my eye enough to be bumped to red-shirt status. Not that that's a good thing for you. It only gives me the ability to push you beyond what you think you are capable of and probably gets you yelled at too. I think the next red shirts should say "I volunteered at C5 and all I got was yelled at by Anne Neumann" :-)
