ADMISSIONS: All admissions volunteers must understand and be able to explain the wine tasting wrist band admission and token policies. Volunteers will not be required to verify drinking age. Security staff will be in place to do this prior to attendees reaching the admissions tent.
Cash Handler: Collect cash or scan pre-sale tickets. Must be able to use ticket scanner, handle cash and make change.
Wristbands: Place appropriate wristband on attendees’ wrists, based on their ticket purchase.
Wine Glass/Token: Give a token to attendees age 21 or older. Give a commemorative wine glass to attendees who purchased a wine tasting ticket.
Volunteer/Exit Line: Verify that volunteers entering through this line have a ticket stamped “volunteer.” This lane is also used by attendees exiting the park.
Volunteers will be responsible for selling WineFest and North East souvenirs as well as Basket of Cheer Tickets. Must be able to handle cash and make change.
Drive a gator (in Gravel Pit Park) or use a wagon (in Gibson Park) to courier wine purchases from the wine tents to Wine Check. Pick up wine purchases that have been set in designated areas behind the wine tents. Check that each box, bag or bottle has a wine check ticket attached before leaving the wine tent area. Drive/walk to the Wine Check and unload the wine. Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age to be a courier and to operate Gator. Must be able to lift a case of wine.
Alphabetically sort the deliveries of wine purchases brought by the couriers. When attendees pick up purchases, take the wine check ticket from the attendee and match it with their purchase. Have the attendee initial the ticket, keep the ticket and give the attendee their items. Must be able to lift a case of wine.
