Event App We Are Using

If you are helping at the ice rink, workshops or Winter Lodge you will need to download the below app onto your smartphone.

First, go to the App Store or Play Store, search for and download the Eventbrite Organizer app to check in attendees at the event site. 

Additionally, you will receive an email inviting you to Get Started so you can set-up an account (if you don’t already have one).  Once your account is set-up it will give you access to the event guest list so you can "Check in" attendees manually or by scanning their tickets via the QR code.

Please watch this video to help guide you through the steps. (the first 2 minutes gives you the info you need)

Below are the instructions:

  1. Go to your event.  First, log into your Eventbrite account. Then, select your event.  To change events, tap the house (iOS) or the menu (Android) at the top left corner.
  2. Tap “Check in”.  For Android users, first tap the menu. Then select “Check in”
  3. Tap the scan icon to scan tickets.  The app uses your device’s camera to scan tickets. Aim it at the QR code on the ticket to check in the attendee.

Once scanned, a confirmation message shows on the app.

Manually check in attendees.

  • To check in attendees without scanning, search or scroll to find their ticket.
  • Then either:
    • Swipe right on their ticket to check it in. Swipe left to check it out.
    • Tap their ticket and select “Check in” to check it in. Tap “Checked in” to check it out.

If you are working during the event please keep it nice but with the weather in mind, dress comfortably and festive attire is encouraged (i.e. ugly Xmas shirt/sweater, santa hat, etc.).  All volunteers will receive a lanyard to wear during the event.  Also, the event is on concrete so we highly suggest wearing comfortable shoes.
