Call For Volunteers - Americas Rugby Championship Games - February 6 & 20

Rugby Canada is seeking volunteers for the upcoming Americas Rugby Championship (ARC) games at Westhills Stadium, Langford Saturday February 6 and Saturday February 20.

Ebb Tide RFC has led the charge and manned ARC posts since the event first came to Langford in 2012.  We have made tremendous contributions out front and behind the scenes to make this event successful each year, and I hope that you are up to the challenge yet again.
While I do not have full details yet regarding shifts per day and volunteers required per shift, we will require volunteers between10:00 am and 6:00 pm both days as well as crews for set up on Fridays and tear down on Sundays.
If you are interested and available, please email me at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it  
Please feel free to forward this email to friends and family interested in helping at the event.
Thank you,
