2017 Volunteer Info Kinsmen Wheels
2017 Volunteer Information
Thank you to all of our 2016 volunteers! Volunteers like you made the 2016 Wheels Lottery a fantastic success. Your dedication and generosity helped the Kinsmen Club of Calgary raise more than $500,000 for the community including local Programs & charities:
Kinsmen Wheels is a combination of six different vehicle raffles sold all over the park during the Calgary Stampede. This year’s Lottery will include the Split‘em 50 raffle. Each seller will have 50/50 tickets to sell as an add-on and should allow us to put even more funding back into the Calgary community.
Truck & 5th Wheel, Truck & Toys, Truck & Boat,
Corvette Stingray, Harley Davidson , 2017 Truck and Split’em 50
There are two positions available for volunteers: Sellers and Printers. The process is quite simple.
- Sellers: If you are in a selling booth your job is to persuade park goers to buy your tickets. For some selling may seem intimidating, however, at Stampede a large number of patrons come to the park to see a show and get their tickets! Once sold you direct them to your fellow volunteers in a nearby printer booth.
- Printers: this is where you come in. Patrons who have purchased tickets from the Kinsmen Wheels lotteries or the Rotary Dream Home will come to your booth. You simply gather their name phone# etc using a laptop and print the information on their tickets then direct them to the ticket boxes nearby.
Most days have two shifts: – afternoon from 11am – 5:30 and evening from 5:30 – 12am.
On Value days we there will be 3 shifts - 9am - 1:30pm, 1:30pm – 5:30pm and 5:30pm - 12am Sunday July 9, Tuesday July 11 and Wednesday July 12
New volunteers can sign up by downloading a shift sheet by clicking the picture below and e-mailing it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All of our Volunteers get passes to the Stampede grounds. Since you’re getting in free why not come down early or stay late and enjoy the show! Either way, please report to our office a half hour before your shift in the Big 4 through the main entrance by Mavericks.
Our Kinsmen volunteers will provide training, support, drinks and a snack and of course encouragement. Draws for the prizes are made the Wednesday after Stampede and yes we will know who sold the winning tickets.The Wheels Lottery is run entirely by volunteers like you. Volunteering requires nothing but a good attitude: there’s no cost, no experience needed, and no liability. Whether you can work just one shift or every day of Stampede, we need you. Starting with Sneak-a-Peek on Thursday July 6 through Sunday July 16, show your community spirit, dress Western, and pitch in.
Wheels 2017 features better prizes, new booths and more fun than ever before. Bring out your Inner Carnie and be part of the Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth.
