It is my very great pleasure to announce the roll-out of a new program to reward the many volunteers in Zombie Squad. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you:“The ZS Volunteer Awards Program”
Zombie Squad is always looking for ways to benefit the communities that our members live in. A large part of this work is done through chapter events, but not everyone lives close enough to a chapter to participate. We also recognize that many of our members donate their own time and effort to worthwhile charities, with, up to now, little recognition from Zombie Squad.
We are changing that.
Zombie Squad wants to recognize and reward the selfless behaviour that makes this organization so great. To do so, we've come up with the Zombie Squad Volunteer Awards Program (ZS-VAP). The ZS-VAP offers recognition to those who cannot participate in chapter events, or who volunteer aditional time on their own. It is available to any ZS member with a current membership.
Here's how it works:1. Submit your charity:
Send us information about the charity or charities you wish to volunteer for. The ZS board must approve all charities that members volunteer for in the ZS-VAP in order to receive credit towards awards. An initial list of approved charities should be available and new charities will be approved as members suggest them and are approved by the ZS board of directors.
Mail, email, or fax information to:
P.O. BOX 63124
ST. LOUIS, MO. 63163VAP@ZOMBIEHUNTERS.ORG
Fax: 1-888-495-40522. Log the hours you work:
Once the charity is approved, the ZS member volunteer must simply keep track of their hours and have their supervisor sign off on them. Much of this program is based on an honor system, but after the volunteer submits the form(s) the ZS coordinator of ZS-VAP may follow up with the supervisor to verify the hours are correct before the award is mailed out.

The volunteer award form has an attached time sheet to show the break down of dates/hours to show where the total hours come from.
A separate form must be filled out for each different charity.3. Get free stuff:
You have to work at least 20 hours per year to receive an award. The more hours you work, the more stuff you will get. Awards are cumulative, so working 80 hours will get you all three.
#1 - 20 hours - ZS volunteer Pin: This is a quality enamel lapel pin, which will add just the right touch of class to your post-apocalyptic outfit.
#2 - 40 hours - ZS volunteer Patch: Just the thing for marking your bags and clothing as the property of a caring individual who is prepared for the living dead.
#3 - 80 hours - ZS volunteer T-shirt: Be the envy of everyone in your limited edition Zombie Squad Volunteer T-shirt. Start Date: January 1st 2008
Cumulative volunteer hours will be calculated over a year at a time. The calendar year to add up hours for award benefits will be between January 1st and December 31st each year the program is active. Volunteer hours over multiple years cannot be combined. Hour totals are reset each January 1st.
We hope to reward the dedication of our members with this program. We also hope that it will encourage some of you to give that little extra that might make the difference in your own community. Please contact us to join this exciting new program!VAP@ZOMBIEHUNTERS.ORG
Further details will be posted on the main site and in this thread as they become available.
Realistically, I think I can launch a nine pound chain saw at 50 fps from a shoulder mounted rubber powered bazooka...
I reserve the right to yell "Dookyhole!" - or it's Hebrew equivalent if such a thing exists - whilst dispensing a barrage of palm strikes at my opponent.
