At the last OLA Masters meeting Grady Robson presented this year's DOVE 2009 campaign which consists of a 37 hour charity lacrosse game, a huge silent auction and family fun fair day to make sure that there is something for everyone as we celebrate Canada's first National sport while supporting the Canadian Centre for Abuse Awareness (www.abusehurts.com) and the Spirit of the Stick (www.spiritofthestick.com) organizations.
As we approach the weekend (June 12 and June 13) we have noticed that a number of participants have not register or have informed us of their intentions. In fact, our current number of register participants is dramatically below last year's target at the same time before the campaign. You can appreciate that such events include a number elements which need to be establish well in advance to ensure that supplies, prizes, volunteers, etc acquired and deployed to provide a smooth running weekend.
In conjunction with a generous donation from a corporate sponsor, we have made the following adjustments to ensure you and your team mates participation in this event:
1. The incentive structure has been revised -http://www.laxdove.ca/DOVE2009Incentives.pdf
2. The registration deadline is May 29
3. We encourage you to bring a many friends, team mates and family to join you on the floor or volunteer.
4. Here is a firm schedule for the weekend -http://www.laxdove.ca/DOVE2009ERA.pdf
Finally, the success of any event like this is directly the result of your support! The only reason why we were able to raise $47,000 last year was because on your commitment to the project. We humbly request your assistance again this year.
