Event description

Description

Casinos supply us with 80% of our entire budget and is used to cover our facility rentals, equipment, staff, coach honorarium's, and travel expenses for out of town training and competition, so your donation of time is invaluable!

All athletes receiving travel support are expected to volunteer or supply a volunteer for at least one shift (shifts will take place approximately between 9 am - 7 pm or 6 pm - 3 am depending on position). Positions include: bankers, chip runners, cashiers and working in the count room.

If you live more than 50km out of the Edmonton area, we will supply accommodation and cover travel expenses.

For questions, or to sign up, please contact Margaret at margaret@acpsa.ca

FAQs

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

You must bring a government issued photo ID and be at least 18 years of age

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

The Palace Casino is at West Edmonton Mall, easily accessible via all forms of public and personal transportation. ACPSA can reimburse gasoline expenses for anyone travelling further than 50 km, and for volunteers with disabilities working the late shift, ACPSA will pay for your accessible taxi, as we know DATS and the city buses do not transport after 11:45 pm.

I'm from out of town. Can I still volunteer?

Yes! The casino proceeds are distributed all over the province. If you are coming further than 50 km, we can accomodate you in a hotel for one night, and pay for your breakfast (all other shift meals will be provided on site).

What can I bring into the event?

You may bring your own water, but we will provide beverages, snacks and you may order food from the snack bar on site. No alcohol is permitted. AGLC asks that you not wear sports wear to your volunteer shift, and refrain from wearing clothing with messaging on it. If possble, please wear dark bottoms, preferrably not denim. The casino can get chilly, so bring a sweater. Its also a good idea to bring a book if you're a chip runner. It can get a bit slow. Do not bring valuables, as we cannot guarantee that the volunteer lounge will remain locked and closed atvall times during your shift.

I have dietary restrictions, can you accomodate these?

We can accomodate restrictions, not preferences (ie, I don't like pizza), contact the organizer at least one week before your shift to discuss and ensure yur needs are met.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

contact margaret@acpsa.ca for further details.
