A Gopher is a volunteer that handles menial tasks like running things across the convention center, filling in where help is needed, stuffing con bags, et cetera. There are no set hours or schedules for Gophers, but in order to receive badge compensation, one must work 18 hours. As a Gopher, you will have a great opportunity to network and work beside Staffers if joining BronyCon staff is a goal of yours. To apply for Gophers, visit the Gophers application page.
A Gopher is eligible to receive a badge refund for working 18 hours. Other small perks may be available (key chains, badge ribbons, et cetera). Certain tasks will award a gopher 1.5 hours of work for each hour completed toward earning a badge, making it possible to earn a badge for 12 hours of work.
