With so many personnel flying in from across the country, the vehicles will get a good highway test-drive, travelling between Pearson International Airport and Deerhurst Resort where the athletes and officials are staying. The SUVs will also be used in town to shuttle people to the Summit Centre arena and the various schools and retirement homes that the teams are scheduled to visit.
“We have a good nucleus of people, and Huntsville never has a problem getting volunteers, but there are a few holes left that we have to fill,” said McConnell. “We will also be providing volunteer swag for those who want to get involved. It can be anything from doing laundry to parking cars, working security, taking tickets.”

Individual tickets will go on sale one week before the scheduled game, and will be $10 for preliminary group games (November 4-6), $15 for the semifinals (November 7), and $20 for the gold and bronze medal games. Ticket packages are still available with the full tournament package costing $50 and including entry to all 18 games, working out to less than $3 per ticket.
