We are the grinning face of BLAZING SWAN: A demographic sample, a community example, portal royals, principle pragmatists and greeter gurus.

We are the spark that lights the FIRE, the first point of contact between YOU and your home-coming.

We are the moment of impact: GROUND ZERO for INFO.


What We Do

We are the first impression of BLAZING SWAN.

Greeting is a vital role that helps shape and form the initial perceptions and expectations of the virgins, the veterans and the visitors.

We do not discriminate – every single person at BLAZING SWAN is greeted by US.

Greeting is the only chance to communicate with every single participant on a one-on-one basis, mano-a-mano, facia-a-facia. Armed with wit, wisdom and infectious exuberance, Greeters are dedicated to providing useful answers to all blazing swan questions; sometimes wearing nothing but a smile!

Greeters are experts in the 11 guiding principles and do their dang-didly-arndest to drive home the major issues of critical importance; our passion enables us to leap past mutant vehicles in a single bound, dissipate MOOP in a spark of insight, dissolve your troubles with the wink of an eye and preach the principles in one swift song of glorious freedom. We care not only about your personal safety, but to the continued survival of the event itself, the philosophy of our principles, and our community.

Greeters are eager to engage in discussion with a compassionate yet assertive manner and clarify the concepts that define the atypical standards of our unique BLAZING SWAN culture.

In short, the mandated goal of our Greeter mission is the orientation, education, and the final tick-off for each and every attendee before setting them loose as newly indoctrinated PARTICIPANTS of Jilikan Rock City.


How We Do It

How we communicate can have a lasting impact… and we are masters of communication.

Scientific studies have shown that students absorb more information and retain it better when they are engaged in the subject matter. Well, goodness gracious gregariousness, look out! As a Greeter, the attention-getting possibilities are as endless as your imagination – and your stamina.

Greeters have enlightened, inspired and enchanted hundreds of new and returning participants and we do so with notorious flair; in the past we’ve had aerobic interpretive dances, serenades by ukelele, friendly nudity, cinnamon scrolls, cuddle puddles, the ever efficient “no nonsense” method, and a variety-pak of endearingly hostile paradoxes (you know the Surly Greeter dressed in a playful tu-tu? Or, its aesthetic opposite, the super-friendly gregarious Greeter outfitted and accessorized for revolution and terrorism?) just to name a few.

Needless to say, creative educational techniques and other novel methods of communication are greatly encouraged


Who You Are

Gregarious Philosophers, Guides and Messengers, Hosts and Ushers, Communicators and Educators, Troubadours and Clowns.


What We Need

Energetic, dependable and informed Greeters with fabulous Communication Skills and the Ability to Relate to just about Anyone and EVERYONE.

Qualified Greeters should be able to demonstrate an ability to recognise when (and HOW) to exercise the recommended daily allowance of common sense, silliness, and principle preaching. A modicum of patience and a good sense of humor is essential.
