The Organising Committee announces Volunteer Recruitment
Programme for this years Games.......
On Monday 27th November at the National Sports Centre, Douglas,
members of the local media were invited to attend a presentation
by Ven. Brian Partington. Brian anounced that the Organising Committee
were looking to recruit 1,000 volunteers to help with the running
of the Games.
There are many key roles which need to be filled by volunteers,
eg. we need at least 60 drivers to act as attachés to each
of the teams. Because of the nature of the role, we expect this
to be done on a shift basis as many team maagers will be working
18 hour days during the week! Gary Jakeman, Games Administrator
stated " We will need a large number of people to help as marshals
for the Opening Ceremony and hopefully many local people will come
forward to assist us on this evening. With over 5,000 competitors
and spectators expected in the NSC Outdoor arena, 'crowd control'
will be very important, especially when we have to transport 2,500
competitors back to their hotels immediatley after the formalities
