Operation RED NOSE

Posted by on Nov 15, 2010 in News | 10 comments

UPDATE: NOV 16

The nights available for a company night are December 10, 11, 18 and 31. Operation Red Nose doesn’t usually take the 31st as a company night for a number of reasons – the first being that they realize it’s difficult to get volunteers to commit.

Volunteers would use their own cars as escort vehicles only – a driver and navigator get in the client’s car.

Operation Red Nose pays out gas to the volunteers. I’m not sure what this year’s nightly stipend will be yet. There’s also food (snacks) at headquarters.

Volunteers need to be at the office – in Place 400 near the pub – at 7 p.m. the night of for training. There’s not going to be a separate training night this year. Call outs start at 9 p.m.

Volunteers have to have proof of insurance – but IBC does cover the insurance and liability for that night.

 We propose taking the Dec 10 date…it’s a Friday….leaves Saturday available for us to celebrate and take advantage of Operation RED NOSE ourselves.

CrossFit Saint John is calling all members to participate in a great cause to cut back on drinking and driving over the holidays.

We would like to own a night of participation and we need to accumulate 15 people to do it. We will obtain a lot more information regarding the event but if we get a team of 15 together, we will own the night and have a great time doing it.

The basics that I know to this date. People call to get both themselves and their vehicles home in one piece. We are in teams of 3. One person drives the callers vehicle, one person drives the rental vehicle and one person is a navigator. Together we get people home safely and help eliminate drinking and driving….

Who’s in?? Keep in mind, friends and family members are welcome to join the ranks.

PS…. We need to know ASAP
