Marshals required

Dear Members,

Thank the members who have volunteered to marshal for the winter season . . . so far. We have about 60% of the required marshals. We have had a very good response from new members as well as the old hands, but could do better from some of our more regular racers. A further response is needed.

We are still short of marshals for the races after Easter;

•  Saturday 26th April, Old Federal Highway - one Marshal required

•  Saturday 3rd May April, Tidbinbilla - two Marshals required

•  Saturday 10th May, Lookout Hill - four Marshals required

Please send your marshal nominations to the Race Committee providing your contact details, the number of races you will marshal at and any race/date preferences;

 - Name.

 - e-mail.

 - Mob. No.

 - Marshal experience yes/no?

 - No. of races I will marshal for 2014 winter season
