Tigris provided large event staffing for our client Canadian Tire at the Canadian Tire Motorsport Park May 21-22. We provided an Event Manager and a team of event staff to help run various tasks at the event, including 15 shuttle kart drivers, 2 stationed at a Woods Activation, 1 greeter and 2 floaters.
What does a shuttle kart driver do? Why were there so many of them? Hundreds of guests camp onsite throughout the weekend, dispersed over the large grounds. From the camp sites to the races is a very long walk, and many guests aren’t able to explore the grounds without a vehicle. Our shuttle kart drivers provide courtesy rides and accept donations from patrons for Jumpstart. Jumpstart is “more than just about getting kids active. It’s about giving kids from families in financial need the same chance to participate as their neighbours, their classmates and their friends. Whether it’s the chance to try a new sport or to continue with a favourite one, no kid should be left out.”
The staff that were stationed at the Woods Activation greeted guests and encouraged patrons to fill out a ballot for a chance to win a camping kit worth over $1700. The floaters assisted with relieving staff for breaks. Although the client requested large event staffing, the event went off without a hitch and guests were more than thankful for the shuttle drivers.
