The 2017 Cape Bre­ton Open is look­ing in great shape ac­cord­ing to Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor Sandy Camp­bell. How­ever, or­ga­niz­ers are still look­ing for vol­un­teers to help out with the event which will be rais­ing funds for the Cape Bre­ton Hos­pi­tal Foun­da­tion.

"It's a busy week­end and peo­ple that were avail­able last year are not avail­able this year for what­ever rea­son. So, any­body that would like to score or caddy or mar­shal we'd love them to get in con­tact with me...295-1106 or go to www.cape­bretonopen.com," said Joe Metz, CBO Vol­un­teer Co­or­di­na­tor. “

“No ex­pe­ri­ence is re­quired. No min­i­mum com­mit­ment. There's go­ing to be train­ing ses­sions for scor­ing and cad­dy­ing and mar­shalling."

What do vol­un­teers get out of it?

"Ev­ery­body who has ever vol­un­teered gets so much more than they even think they are go­ing to get. They get to walk with play­ers, they get to see what a pro­fes­sional event is all about. I've never heard any­body say they had a bad time."
