Basseterre, St. Kitts (MyVueNews.com) – Local organisers preparing for this year’s CPL T20 Games in St. Kitts have expressed delight in the turnout on the first call for volunteers.
According to Val Henry, the St. Kitts-Nevis Patriots venue manager for the CPL T20 Games in St. Kitts, the call for volunteers is part of the process in preparing to deliver a world-class experience during the four games of the CPL T20 stage in the federation.
The volunteers met Wednesday, 18th May, with the Volunteer Committee, that is headed by Volunteer Coordinator Lindbergh Belle.
With the CPL Games just about six weeks away, Venue Manager Henry said he was very pleased with the response to the call for volunteers.
He said, “It’s demonstrating that there are still many people in St. Kitts and Nevis who believe that volunteer service is a national service, and who also believe and understand that their roles in the CPL tournament are what really make the success of the event. If we want to continue to attract international events, such as cricket, I think that it is important that we prepare our volunteers adequately.”
Volunteer Coordinator Belle reported that the meeting went well. He said, “They were enthusiastic, excited, had important questions, and it was a meaningful interaction and exchange of information.”
For the persons who turned up at Wednesday’s meeting, it was an opportunity to learn about what is expected of them and to indicate their areas of interest.
The St. Kitts phase of the CPL T20 tournament begins on the 30th June when the St. Kitts-Nevis Patriots play the Guyana Amazon Warriors. The St. Kitts-Nevis Patriots will contend with the Jamaica Tallawahs on 2nd July, with the St. Lucia Zouks on 3rd July and finally with the Barbados Tridents on the 5th July, at the Warner Park Cricket Stadium.
