AWA Casino – Call for Volunteers

The next Alberta Whitewater Association casino is in Calgary on July 30 & 31, and we are looking for volunteers. We need people for most positions. Information regarding the various positions can be found here: http://aglc.ca/casino/volunteerrequirements.asp(scroll down). No experience is needed for any of the positions – training is provided and all the positions are easy and FUN! You don’t need to be an AWA member to volunteer but you do need to be at least 18 years old.

 The day shifts are from 10:30 am to 6:30 pm and the evening shifts are from 6:30 pm till around 2:30 to 3:00 am, except if you are in the count room – these shifts are from 10 pm till around 3:00 am. Our casino is on a Tuesday and Wednesday.

 As was the case at our last casino, for each shift you volunteer for your club will receive a $100 credit. This credit can be used to pay AB Gaming approved expenses (equipment, facility rental, etc.) and must be used before our next casino.

 While working your shift you will receivecomplementary snacks and a meal. People coming from out of town (more than 100 km) will be reimbursed $.26/km and accommodation will be reimbursed for those wishing to stay overnight. For those people at the Kananaskis for Nationals, we will organize a shuttle into the city for you.

 More details are available here: http://www.albertawhitewater.ca/awa-casino.

 Please let me know if you are able to help out. Please indicate which day & shift you prefer and also if you have any preference as to which position you would like to take on.

 This is an amazing fundraiser for the AWA – we will receive between $60,000 and $80,000 for our 2 days of volunteer work.

However we do need to fill 38 shifts so please sign up if you are able. Friends and family members (18 or over) are most welcome.

 Thanks very much,

Althea Shaw
