Members of the 101st Grey Cup Festival Committee and SaskEnergy announced the process for volunteer registration and opened applications today for the five day festival which runs from November 20 – 24.
Approximately 3,500 volunteers are required throughout the festival as Saskatchewan gets set to host the largest annual sporting event in the country. All volunteers must be nineteen years of age and available for a minimum of fifteen hours for a variety of roles.
All volunteers are required to submit an easy online application, complete a criminal record check and make a $50 payment to be a part of the Celebration In Rider Nation.
Volunteers are required to have an email address and create an online account.
In September volunteers will use their online volunteer management system account to identify availability, pick roles and self- schedule.
“This is a great opportunity for the people of Saskatchewan to be part of the biggest annual sporting event in the country,” stated Volunteer Festival Committee Chair Dave Pettigrew. “As we open our doors to the country we require a tremendous team of volunteers to ensure the Celebration In Rider Nation is the best Grey Cup Festival of all-time.”
“SaskEnergy’s commitment to championing Saskatchewan volunteers has helped our province showcase many local, national and even world-class events”, stated Warren Steinley MLA Regina Walsh Acres on behalf of Tim McMillan, Minister Responsible for SaskEnergy. “Not only does SaskEnergy support the volunteers, but they also encourage volunteerism within their own organization. Today, many SaskEnergy/TransGas employees were the first to sign up to help make sure this is another successful event.
