The organizing committee has been hard at work planning the 2019 Jiffy Lube Alberta Scotties Tournament of Hearts, coming to Stettler Jan. 23 to 27, but more volunteers are welcome.

Alberta Scotties spectacle inspires local volunteers

Stettler welcomes more helping hands for January’s Alberta Scotties Tournament of Hearts

Curling fans and community boosters alike are stepping up for the 2019 Jiffy Lube Alberta Scotties Tournament of Hearts, coming to town this January.

Fans are excited to welcome these world-class curlers and be part of the sporting spectacle that will put Stettler onto the national stage with SportsNet coverage, says Steve Gerlitz, president of the Stettler Curling Club.

“You get to be part of the biggest community event in a very long time,” he notes.

The call for volunteers has met with a good response so far, but with 150 to 200 volunteers needed for the Jan. 23 to 27 championship, more hands are welcome – and encouraged!

What you can do: Anything and everything! While the 14-member organizing committee has been busy, as the event draws nearer, there will be roles for everyone. From servers and security to drivers and 50/50 ticket sellers, volunteer as much or as little as you have time for, Gerlitz says, adding that volunteers will come together for a pizza party Sunday night to wrap up the event.

Typical volunteer shifts will be for the three-hour curling draw on the ice, but other shifts will be available, including serving in the lounge – they’d especially like to hear from you if you have ProServe certification, Gerlitz says.

What you can expect: Crediting the creative minds coming together on the organizing committee, Gerlitz says fans will be amazed with what’s planned. In addition to quality entertainment throughout the event, “the opening ceremonies are going to be very, very good,” Gerlitz hints.

The opening banquet, Tuesday, Jan. 22 in the Stettler Community Hall, is new for the Scotties, but something organizers felt would help share the excitement. “We felt really strongly that the community had to be involved, Gerlitz says, pointing to the town’s 50 junior curlers, who are excited to meet some of the best of the best. “This is our chance to showcase these world-class athletes.”

Banquet tickets are $50 – call Vicki at 403-741-5963 to reserve your seat today.

Ticket sales for the Jan. 23 to 27 Scotties have been brisk, with only about 10 full event passes remaining, Gerlitz says. Limited passes and single-day tickets will be available at the door.
