Close to 1,000 volunteers were needed for the 105th Grey Cup Championship in Ottawa. From the multi-day celebration that was called the "biggest Redblacks team party since the club started up", to shuttle drivers to the logistics of the half-time show. Each and every one was recruited to ensure all the guests to the event received the most exceptional experience. No doubt that was achieved!
