Calgary has a strong history of hosting many Canadian and International first class sporting championships and this is only possible because of the excellent volunteers this city is known for. The 2009 Tim Hortons Brier, as part of the Canadian Curling Association's Season of Champions, will be hosted by Calgary, Alberta and will welcome 60 of Canada's top male curlers, alongside officials, coaches, media and families. The Pengrowth Saddledome will be the site of curling action.
The 2009 Tim Hortons Brier has been accepting volunteers since the spring of 2008. Over 800 volunteers have already been accepted so several areas have filled their volunteer needs. We are still looking for volunteers in the following areas: Bar Services, Transportation and Publications (program sellers).
A target of 1000 volunteers will be recruited for the 2009 Tim Hortons Brier and all interested individuals are invited to apply for exciting volunteer opportunities.
We will be accepting volunteers until the target number of volunteers is reached.
Your application will be processed as soon as possible and the 2009 Tim Hortons Brier Volunteer Committee will do it's very best to match individuals with available positions.
Please note that applying for a volunteer position does not guarantee acceptance, but we value your support and interest.
