“We’re so pleased to see so many people turn out for our first volunteer event,” noted Host Committee Chair Danielle Scinski.  “And, we’re extremely grateful to SaskEnergy, our official Volunteer and Junior Stars Sponsor… they’re really committed to ensuring Moose Jaw’s Canada Cup will be the best ever in the history of the championship.” The volunteers were split into two groups for orientation sessions at 6:30 and 7:30 pm.  The agenda featured the introduction of volunteer directors, the ordering of official volunteer uniforms and photos for event accreditation passes. The Host Committee is well on the way to filling the 374 volunteer positions that include roles in a wide range of functions such as ice preparation, driving, souvenir program sales and hospitality roles in the Patch… the place everyone gathers to party.
