We will need many volunteers to successfully host this event and make Lunenburg County proud. Following are some of the categories that we will need filled by volunteers:
Organizing committee – There are a core group of people working very hard to ensure that the 2017 games will be successful. If you have expertise in volunteer recruitment, fundraising, proposal writing or marketing, we could use your help.
Sporting events – There are 26 events planned for the 2017 games. Some events have multiple categories such as track and field. We need people with sport specific skills, meaning that you have run a tournament in this event before or have helped out in the past. We will need facility and equipment people to ensure that the venue is set up properly and all aspects are covered; i.e., directional signs, parking, bleachers in place, water stations in place, first aiders on site. You get the picture.
We will need score keepers, officials, crowd control, meet and greet people as well. There will also be a need for people who can move large equipment around, set up, tear down and move on to the next task.
We will also need a few key people who want to work in the Sport Nerve Centre. These people must have experience in managing large events and lots of people. They will be the people who plan and deliver the specific sport competitions and events. They will have a team of volunteers under them. It will be high energy with long hours and lots of problem solving (but great rewards!)
