Some of you are aware of my personal role and the role CrossFit North Vancouver plays in the quest for Western Canada’s best athletes to get to the games and some of you are not. For those of you who are, skip to the next paragraph. For those of you who don’t know, keep reading. I am the Regional Director for the CrossFit Games in Western Canada and my biggest responsibility is managing the Canada West Regional Event for the Games with the goals of ensuring the best athletes represent Canada West at the Games and the Community has a great time! Chris is the Event Director who works with me and Jesse Bifano from CrossFit Squamish is the Competition Director. All the work we do is nothing without the help an support of volunteers. CrossFit North Vancouver and CrossFit Squamish have always been responsible for over 50% of the total number of volunteers and I am calling on you again to help us out with our goals of putting our best athletes forward and creating a great event for our community.
1. a person who voluntarily offers himself or herself for a service or undertaking.
2. a person who performs a service willingly and without pay.
By definition, above, you are all amazing for everything you do. Here is how you can help:
BUILD and TAKE DOWN
Thursday, June 6th, we will be building the training floor. Basically, putting together a larger version of our gym. We need an army of people to make this happen and it’s always difficult because it involves taking a day off work. We will start the build at approximately 8am and there will be a dinner at 7pm to thank everyone for their help.
Sunday, June 9th, roughly 5pm, we will be tearing down the floor and loading up the trucks. This job is tough and in particular it’s tough for people who have volunteered all weekend. It would be great if some people who haven’t volunteered all weekend could come out and show up for 4-5 hours on Sunday night. Please, pretty please?? Most of us do nothing on Sunday nights, right??
VOLUNTEER DURING THE WEEKEND
We need Volunteers to do everything from take out the garbage to judge on the training floor. There are jobs for anyone and everyone. Please go to the Canada West Volunteer Registration Site.
Please let me know if there is something else you feel you can do to help out during the event. Regardless of what role you want to play you must register on the Games Volunteer site above. In addition you can let myself know of Chris know at the gym
Thank you for your help in advance!
PS. It’s the only time of year we close the gym, so, you will have time to help. 😉
