Volunteer recruitment begins for the 2011 Ford World Men’s in Regina

The host committee for the 2011 Ford World men’s curling championship is looking for volunteers and, beginning today, volunteers can register for the world men’s championship, which is to be held April 2-10 in Regina. Approximately 500 volunteers are required for the 2011 Ford World men’s curling championship and there are many openings including security, drivers, bar and patch services, hosting and serving in various lounges and assisting with program sales. The 2011 Ford World men’s curling championship, as part of the Canadian Curling Association’s Season of Champions, will be hosted by Regina, Saskatchewan and will welcome 60 of the world’s top male curlers, alongside officials, coaches, media and families. All interested individuals are invited to apply for exciting volunteer opportunities and we will be accepting volunteers until the target number of volunteers is reached. It was also announced Friday that SaskEnergy is the official volunteer sponsor of the championship. In a message from SaskEnergy: As Saskatchewan’s unofficial Champion of Volunteers, SaskEnergy is dedicated to supporting our province’s enthusiastic volunteers who, by virtue of their reputation, ensure that major sporting events keep coming to our region. The 2011 Ford World men’s curling championship is one such major event that will be held in our province next year.  This significant international competition comes to Saskatchewan on the heels of numerous other successful curling events, such as:  the Brier, the Olympic Trials, the Tournament of Hearts and the recent Ford World women’s championships.  Next March, Regina will be the place to be for all curling fans, and Saskatchewan volunteers will, no doubt, outdo themselves once again.  So why not be a part of this winning team? SaskEnergy is proud to champion volunteers in this province, and we encourage you to apply today to share your time, energy and spirit to make the 2011 Ford World men’s curling championships a huge success.
