DIT

DIT means Do It Together and is just about the most important and unique thing about Fastaval.

At Fastaval you’re neither a guest nor a customer, but a participant. This means that in the course of your Fastaval, you must give a
couple of hours of your time to the community. It is YOURS and our Fastaval, and so it is that we all give a hand to make
everything come together. Every year the DIT’s do their bit to make sure that Fastaval has a working common area, roleplaying
games, clean toilets, sandwiches for the hungry, the Oasis, the Bar and everything else.

The way that DIT works is that you sign up for one or more tasks. By default, you get just one task during Fastaval, with which you
help an area. It’s nice, and you meet lots of good people from the whole convention. It is so very nice that every year there are
Super DIT’s who choose to spend their whole Fastaval helping out.

How to become a DIT

DIT service is mandatory (unless you’re already some sort of organizer). You sign up for DIT when you sign up for Fastaval. Here
you can indicate when you would like to help out with DIT, and you have an opportunity to influence what you want to do.

You might DIT in:

  • Cleaning rooms
  • Dirtbusters (over 18)
  • Dishwashing
  • Fastaval Junior
  • James (helping out during the Otto party)
  • Party bar (alcohol-free)
  • Party dishwashing
  • Party setup
  • The Bar (over 18)
  • The Coffee Lounge
  • The fire watch (over 18)
  • The Kiosk
  • The Oasis (over 18)

Setup and cleanup

Setup and cleanup mark the beginning and end of Fastaval. It is something we do together, to get it done as fast as possible so we can enjoy our Fastaval.

Setup starts Monday morning before Fastaval. We receive the keys for the school at 9 AM and the preparation work for Fastaval starts at 10 AM. Setup lasts until Wednesday at noon, where we arrange and prepare the school classrooms for roleplay and set up the school for Fastaval. During the setup, Fastaval provides breakfast, lunch and dinner for all of you who are at the school.

Cleanup starts with breakfast Monday morning at 9 AM, after an amazing Otto Party. We’ll spend the day cleaning the school and restoring it to the condition we received it in. It’s a tough job, but it is a lot easier and more enjoyable when we help each other. Cleanup isn’t done until everything is cleaned and back to the ordinary and the school janitor has approved the school. Fastaval provides dinner, as we usually celebrate the end with pizza on the house.

For both setup and cleanup, we need all the help we can get. Even if you’re only able to help and lend a hand part-time, we would still love to have you.
