Nokia Brier March 3 - 11, 2001

Nokia Brier, Civic Centre March 3 - 11, 2001 Ottawa is host for the 9 day Canadian Men's Curling Championships sponsored for the first time by Nokia. This is a very exciting sports event with an expected 160,000 visitors over the 9 days. Our club has been offered the chance to make approximately $30,000 from the event. We will be selling 50/50 raffle tickets for 3 draws daily. For each day there are 3 shifts and each shift needs 12 volunteers to walk throughout the concourse and sell $2 tickets. This will be an easy sell. The attendance at the championships is almost always sold out. The dates and times are as follows: Saturday, March 3 to Sunday, March 11 inclusive 8:30 - 11:00am 12:30 - 3:30pm 6:30 - 9:30 pm We need 12 people for each shift. This is a wonderful opportunity for your company to get 12 staff together and have some fun working for a good cause. They can even wear their company t-shirts or caps. If you are interested in working for a few hours or for volunteering your company staff, please call Shirley Tomblin at 837-3938 or sign up on the sheets at the Friday luncheon. Come out and assist your new Brier Committee, and volunteer for a few hours.
