The purpose of filling out this form is to help find groups that are willing to host a Newcomer Area at future events and to educate volunteer groups on the Chatelaine’s Office’s expectations for these invaluable areas.
The Chatelaine’s Office hopes all of the following amenities will be available to create the ideal Newcomer Area
Pavilion/shade space, setup
Seating and tables for holding things and playing games on
Snacks & refreshments
Welcoming folks, preferably multiple people, so all have a chance to enjoy the event.
Games\activities - potential fun things a newcomer could try.
Not all of the previous amenities need to be organized/handled by your group. Help creating the ideal Newcomer Area can be arranged through contacting the Chatelaine's Office. By filling out this form early, the Chatelaine’s Office will be better able to help your group host a successful Newcomer Area. Regular communication with the Chatelaine’s Office can help create the best environment possible.
The Following can be provided by the Chatelaine's Office (when given enough time):
A Chatelaine can be present at the event to assist in welcoming and chatting with new folks.
Newcomer Pamphlets (Welcome into the Past trifold & Newcomer Event Guides)
Cynagua Gold Key (at the Newcomer Area or where Gold Key encamps).
If there will be a Newcomers Tour, which the Office of the Chatelaine has had great success with at past events, additional aid is requested to staff the Newcomer Area during the Tour.
I sincerely thank you for your interest in providing a Newcomer Area at a future event. Please direct any questions, concerns, or suggestions to the Chatelaine's office.
