Once again this year the Ottawa Granite will be one of the host clubs for the Ottawa Valley Curling Association (OVCA) Brokerlink Junior Superspiel. October 28, 29, and 30 will see some of the best junior curlers in the world, not just Canada, honing their skills in our club.
In support of this we are looking for people willing to volunteer a few hours to work as a timer for one, or more, of these exciting games. It will probably work out around two and a half hours as we would want you at the club fifteen (15) minutes before the start of the games so that you are well settled when the games begin.
If you’re interested but not sure then ask Steve Hindle, Rob Chalmers or the Club Manager, Denise Hoekstra about. They will be able to describe the process and will reassure you that training (it takes less than five minutes to learn) will be provided. In addition, there will be plenty of assistance available during the games. Learning to deal with the pressure of a timed game is an important feature of this bonspiel so your participation will be an aid in the development of these curlers. They have always been appreciative of the participation of our club’s volunteers.

Here are the slots that we are looking to fill. Signing up could guarantee you a front row seat to witness some of the best young curlers in the world (and I’m not exaggerating). I have left room for more than four volunteers as having a back-up or two will provide us with the comfort of knowing that we will have every game covered should unforeseen circumstances arise for a volunteer.
