Curling club callout for volunteers

Renée Fisher of Cloverdale's Team McLaughlin eyes her target during a women's bonspiel at the Cloverdale Curling Club on Sunday.

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.
