The numbers are good, but the Cloverdale Curling Club is still looking for volunteers with special skills to work at the B.C. Women’s Provincial Championship Jan. 17-23, 2010.

“We have have 47 volunteers, not counting 23-25 on the host committee,” said volunteer coordinator Betsy Terpsma. “So we are looking good for general recruitment.”

But the club still needs volunteers in first aid and bartending, with a minimum commitment of working two shifts, each shift lasting four to six hours. Drivers are also needed, and to commit to transporting a team during the week of competition.

Assistance from Level 1 and Level 2 curling officials would also be welcomed, to assist as on-ice observers, timers and hog-line officials.

“All volunteers will have access to the volunteer lounge during their shift, as well as a wind-up party and prizes,” said Terpsma. “We hope to provide t-shirts at no cost to all our volunteers.”

Tournament organizers are expecting 200-300 spectators a day at the Cloverdale club, watching 10 teams compete for the B.C. berth at the Scott Tournament of Hearts in Prince Edward Island.

Draws are tentatively scheduled for noon and 7 p.m. each day during the round robin. Four teams will advance to a playoff round Jan. 21-23.
