The Nepean Skating Club is pleased to be hosting Nepean Winter Skate from Friday January 25 to Sunday January 27. To make this competition a success we require your help.
By volunteering 10 or more hours, the club will return your $150 volunteer fee. This is also a great opportunity for high school students to get their volunteer hours required for graduation. We need all the help we can get, so recruit family and friends to help.
There are many different jobs from which to choose: registration, admission, guest relations, hospitality, runners, dressing room assistants.
We are also looking for donations of food to feed officials – soups, stews, chili and homemade baked goods.
The schedule was revised on January 8 and you can download it here.
Flight lists are now also available here.
The volunteer website is live and ready for you to sign-up. The list of jobs is below.
Although you will be asked to include your full name and contact information, only your first name and first initial of your last name will be displayed to the public.
If you have questions please email me at NSCcompetitionvolunteers@gmail.com.
Thank you in advance for volunteering. I look forward to meeting you at the event.
