Dumfries 2014 Volunteer Information Day

Posted on Wednesday, May 1, 2013 at 8:07am

The organising committee for the 2014 World Mixed Doubles and World Senior Curling Championships are hosting a volunteer open day at Dumfries Ice Bowl on the 11th May at 11.00am.

The committee will be delighted to welcome along any potential volunteers who feel they can make a contribution to the staging of the event in April 2014.  Hosting the 2014 World Mixed Doubles and World Senior Curling Championships will see Dumfries & Galloway hold the biggest sporting event to be seen in our region and provide a showcase of the region for all of the competing nations from around the world.  David Owen Committee Vice Chair said “This is a fantastic opportunity for locals to be involved in a World Championship Event. There is a whole range of roles that need to be filled both before and during the event. As a curler it will be a great week to be involved with!”

The open day will provide opportunities for volunteer to sign up to become part of the team to deliver the event in a wide range of roles from player liaison to transportation and stats recording to ice preparation. Stuart Biggar – Organising Committee Chair said “This is the biggest curling event to be staged in Dumfries & Galloway and the first Curling World Championship event to be staged in Scotland for some years.  The success of the London Olympics will be remembered for the contribution the volunteers gave to the event and the delivery of a successful game.  The organising committee is looking for anyone who feels they can contribute, no matter how small a role, to the delivery of the biggest sporting event to be staged in the region”

The event taking place at Dumfries Ice Bowl will be staged from the 22nd April 2014 over eight days of competition.  If you feel you can add something special to the event please come along on Saturday 11thMay at 11.00am to be provided with information on the event, the roles available and to sign up your commitment.  Registration is available in advance and can be done by emailing the Committee at info@dumfriescurling.co.uk
