CASINO 2015!!!

We have now officially begun the search for Casino Volunteers! This year our Casino will be held on December 9th & 10th at the Elbow River Casino. 

The Casino is our largest fundraiser which only takes place every 18 months. Our last Casino raised approximately $70,000 for Bowcroft. With that being said if there is only one event you volunteer for at our school, please make this the one!

Here is a brief description of the volunteers positions we need to fill: 

General Manager: Responsible for the overall continuity of the casino. Makes sure all volunteer staff arrive and if not, has access to reliable “back-up” volunteer phone numbers. Some data entry experience is required. Can fill in for any volunteer positions for a short period (not a complete shift) of time if needed. 

Banker: In control of the cash and chip inventories. This position is mostly data entry and should be staffed by someone who can use a computer mouse! 

Cashier: Redeems players’ chips for cash. Little data entry required. 

Chiprunner: Delivers chips from the Banker to the game tables as required. Will count chips with the gaming floor staff as required. A fair amount of data entry is required. 

Countroom Staff: Will sort and use money counting machines to count money. Some data entry required. 

There are three basic shifts for each day: 
Day Shift 10:30 am – 7:15 am 
Night Shift 7:00 pm – 3:45 am 
Red Eye Shift 11:30 pm – 3:40 am 

There is no previous experience necessary to volunteer for Casino. Meals and non-alcoholic beverages will be provided during your shift. We will require 38 volunteers for this event. If you would like to volunteer for both days please note that you must hold the same position for each day. Police clearance is not required for this function, the only stipulation is you must be 18 years of age or older, and no gambling or drinking can occur while you are at Casino. If transportation is an issue for you please let us know and we can arrange transportation for you. 

If you would like to volunteer for a shift please contact Barb Rocca at barocca@cbe.ab.ca and let her know which day/shift you would like and which position you would prefer. She will try her hardest to accommodate everyone. Volunteers are not limited to Bowcroft parents so please feel free to ask friends and family to join!
