Just a short note to let you know that registration for the 2010 Winter Games Homestay Program will end on Wednesday, September 30. Up to this date, people registering will qualify for Olympic event tickets. We were hoping you could inform your members about this opportunity to be involved in the Games and this deadline.
2010 Tickets for Volunteers
The 2010 Winter Games Homestay Program is looking for people in Squamish, Whistler and Pemberton who have an extra bedroom(s) available over the 2010 Winter Games period and are willing to host a volunteer from outside the area. Accepted Hosts will receive tickets to Olympic events at The Whistler Sliding Centre and Whistler Olympic Park in recognition of their contribution to the Games.
A Local Volunteer Opportunity
The Homestay Program is looking for additional volunteer Team Leaders. The position is based in Whistler or Pemberton, has flexible hours, and involves getting out in the local community. This is a regular pre-Games volunteer position with potential to continue through the Winter Games period.
The deadline for ticket eligibility is September 30, 2009
