Indy organizers seek extra hands

Single-day tickets for this summer’s Honda Edmonton Indy are, so far, right on track, but three-day packages for the event are down, say organizers.

And organizers are still hoping to fill roughly 150 volunteer and paid jobs before the event kicks off on July 23, said Victoria Cruz, a recruiter for the Indy.

Organizers behind Capital Ex are also hoping to fill 100 volunteer positions before July 22.

A Northlands spokesman says packaged sales for the event are down by 20 per cent, but there’s no need to hit the panic button.

Cruz says the Indy is mostly looking for cooks at the event, though organizers are still
scrambling to find volunteers.

“It’s not dire yet, but the race is only two weeks from happening,” said Randy Killburn, a spokesman with the Indy.
