World Police and Fire Games – Call for Volunteers
Michelle Neilson, many of you will know her from the deck as a red-shirt-wearing official at many swim meets in Manitoba. She has voluntarily taken on the role of Technical Lead and Meet Referee for the upcoming World Police and Fire Games (WPFG) that will be held in Winnipeg from 28 Jul – 6 Aug 2023.
Swimming will be held at Pan Am Pool on Sun 30 Jul, Mon 31 Jul, and Tue 1 Aug. As with any swim meet, officials are needed to ensure that this event runs smoothly.
If you are interested in volunteering for any or all of the days, please use this link to indicate your interest and availability: https://forms.gle/isc42ujbKJSdcNCu6
The intention is to have the first draft of the officials’ grid (schedule) posted by mid to end May. The grid will be emailed to everyone who has completed the online form. This email will include further instructions on the volunteer process for the Games.
Winnipeg will be host to thousands of athletes from around the world as they compete in dozens of events and sports. You can read more information about the Games on their website www.wpfg2023.com
