Stories from the Gold Coast

Feb 24, 2020

Amy McDonald recounts her hilarious experience at a volunteers training day for the 2018 Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast. There are a classic cast of characters, from the Canadian training staff to 'Itchy Guy' and one very special character steers the story into an almost calamitous sequence of events. Introducing 'Val', the ultimate volunteer.

I play a button accordion, upright guitar (like an upright bass) and trigger pre prepared music inspired by cheesy corporate promo soundtracks. Thanks to Jake Morton for sitting in on the drums.

Please enjoy 'The Volunteer'.
