Volunteers are Lining Up for the 2012 Brier!
The Tim Hortons Brier will be contested March 3 – 11, 2012 in Saskatoon’s Credit Union Centre and local volunteers are making it clear they’re committed to ensuring the city stages another outstanding championship. The call for volunteers was opened in March and more than 1,081 applications have already been received to fill the 1,000 positions. The Host Committee has announced that June 1 they will begin to assign volunteers to their Tim Hortons Brier roles. here. The Host Committee is expecting the Brier to draw high attendance with the city setting box office records in both 1989 and 2000. Saskatoon still holds second place for all-time attendance – and with seating expanding by about 3,000 since the last Brier in 2004, organizers have their sights set on a record-breaking event. Full event ticket packages are now on sale. In addition to the “Old Classic” full event pass – for those who crave the excitement of all 22 draws – the 2012 Brier features three “Double Impact” packages that allow fans to double up on the draws that work best for their personal schedule:“The response to our initial call in mid-March has been absolutely outstanding,” said Barry Whitehouse, Vice-Chair of Volunteers. “We still encourage prospective volunteers to get involved. Once we’ve reviewed all the applications we’ll determine the individuals best suited to the various roles.” Volunteers can register online by visiting the Tim Hortons Brier link
