VOLUNTEERS NEEDED for UPCOMING EVENTS April 5-7 and May 4-5:

---April 5-7 CKC Agility Trials (Kelowna)---
Regular volunteer positions will be filled by participants and sign-up will come out with the premium. In the meantime, we're also looking for:
• A photographer for one or more days of this trial to take action shots (indoor, lighting difficult) *and/or* set up a Spring-themed portrait booth (outdoors only if weather permitting, otherwise indoor). We are hoping to find someone willing to donate a portion of the proceeds raised back to the club as a fundraiser. Photographer would choose dates, times, prices, percentage to donate, etc.
• Help with set up and equipment moving late afternoon before the first run on Friday, April 5th.
• Assistant(s) to Trial Secretary who can assist with data entry, printing results, ensuring the judges are taken care of, wrangling volunteers, etc. throughout the weekend.
• Anyone not competing who wants to come to help with bar setting is welcome!
Email Aaryn at wcobc@shaw.ca if you're interested or have questions.

---May 4 & 5 Lure Coursing Trials for Sighthounds (Lumby)---
• We could use a few more people to come out, especially for one or both mornings. There are manual labour jobs (restringing field, checking/filling gopher holes, etc.) as well as more stationary jobs for those who enjoy basic math (Field Clerking, assisting Trial Secretary). Email Fiona at rikefi@telus.net if you're interested or have questions.
• We would also love to have a photographer come to this event. It is completely outdoors, rain or shine, and a chance to capture some beautiful sighthounds in action. If you'd like to fundraise for the club by donating a portion of your proceeds, that's an added bonus but not required.
