Picked up Photographer, Volunteer Accreditation for BC Seniors Games 2012 in Burnaby

I picked up my volunteer and media accreditation for the Burnaby 2012 BC Seniors Games starting this week. I volunteered to join the photo team, and have been assigned several events later in the week. However, the media pass gets me into all events, so if I have time, I may poke my lens into other activities : -).  This should be great fun. Apparently over 2.000 folks have volunteered in various capacities.
