There are many other opportunities to be of service to the club; you can use this tool, "My Volunteer Interests", to inform the Volunteer Coordinator. Once you indicate how you would like to volunteer, a coordinator will contact you before the event to confirm your availability.
Members are occasionally asked to take a shift at the bar during their league play. The Russell Curling Club offers a Smart Serve course for all members, at no charge, so that they can be qualified to perform all duties behind the bar; remember to track these hours and any others under "My Volunteer Hours".
IMPORTANT NOTE: Any volunteers working behind the bar MUST have their own valid SMART SERVE number. This includes servers and cashiers.
If you need more information about volunteering opportunities, contact your League Convenor or the Volunteer Coordinator.
Here's how to sign-up to Volunteer:
- Login to www.russellcurlingclub.com
In the Member menu, select My Volunteer Interests under Member Information
Select your volunteer interest by selecting a Radio button & Comment, and/or clicking on the "See Details" link. For example, if you can volunteer in the Kitchen on Fridays for lunch, select "Available" next to "Kitchen", and type under Comment "any Friday for lunch, from 10am to 2pm". To sign-up for a specific bonspiel or club role (e.g. ice maker), click the appropriate "See details" link. Be sure to click SAVE once you're done.
- If "See details" is selected, click the arrow next to your interest; the number indicates the number of open spots remaining to sign-up. In the example below, The Broder is selected for sign-up.
- After clicking the arrow, the next screen shows your credentials; you can add an optional Comment. If you selected "Other", please add a comment for the Volunteer Coordinator how you can help. Once you are done, be sure to click SIGN ME UP!
- If you've signed up by mistake, click on the "X" next to your name to remove your interest.
