Gopher Registration:

If you are reading this page, then you have already placed the first steps towards being a Gopher for Tokonatsu!

For those that do not have any idea how festivals and conventions run, the majority of the organisation and planning for the event, are done by the committee which sit there pulling their hair out every day before, during, and after the event to bring you the best possible weekend we can. However, there are so many different tasks to do during the event itself, that it is impossible for the committee to do them. That is where the "Gopher" comes in.

"Gopher" started out life within the early stages of the Anime scene, possibly before, as a volunteer staff member, who would go and fetch things, or "go for" something. As such the "Gopher" name started to stick, and the Anime scene then took the name on to mean someone who has given their time up for the event, to assist the committee in the running of the event.

At Tokonatsu, not only will games and participation in the events get you your "House Points", but so will assisting the committee as well. This early sign up form, will also give you access to talk with the other "Gophers" and also talk about the different aspects of the event which you can help with, in such a way as to not flood people who don't really want to see the information.

NOTE: This is not for the light hearted, and as much as we try and thank each and every one of you, the job is far from anything fun! This is a completely voluntary job, and in some cases may push you to your limit. At the end of the day, we just want you to have fun. Tokonatsu has always had a rule, where if this is your first festival, you are not to Gopher! So remember that before you sign up!
