June 13, 2013, Victoria, BC (ISN) – It’s that time of year again to begin preparations for the Victoria Dragon Boat Festival, which is being celebrated at Ship’s Point on Thursday, August 15th through Sunday, August 18th.

We have been having monthly meeting since December, and the festival is taking shape. You’ll notice that our group’s name has been changed from “security” to ‘Event Safety’ to better reflect our duties.

As always, our group has the most shifts to fill, so I’m hoping that most of you will be available to cover some time slots again this year. I believe that the volunteer coordinator, Rosa McBee, has sent out information emails to last years volunteers, but I’m forwarding this out just in case some names were lost in the shuffle. If you haven’t received the message from the Festival office, please let me know and I will connect both sides.

Criminal Records checks will be required again this year, so please complete the necessary form at your local law enforcement office, and forward the completed check to Rosa. If you encounter any delay, you may bring the completed form to your orientation meeting, or as a final resort, bring it to me at the start of your first shift.
