Volunteers

This year, I'm in charge of scheduling the backstage crew (stage managers & runners) for the Nutcracker at B's ballet school. It's mostly straightforward--contacting the people who have volunteered (all parents are required to help with something), and trying to find the best arrangement of people & times. I just have one question for a certain parent: why on earth would you sign up for backstage crew if you have to work the first show weekend and will be out of the country for the second?

I'm afraid this is bringing out my suspicious side. I can't help but wonder if they didn't deliberately volunteer for things they coudln't do so they wouldn't have to do anything. {wry smile}
