Round 5 of the
Western Canadian Rally Championship
Organized by the
West Coast Rally Association
again, the West Coast Rally Association
needs the help of people willing to help
run the next performance rally in a safe and successful
|This is our initial callout
for workers and we very much hope that you can join
us in Merritt on Saturday, October 18th.
Those of you who have already been in contact/volunteered,
please ignore this email (it was too much trouble
to extract you from the list).
|As per usual, the standard
volunteer benefits of fun, T-shirt, banquet, camaraderie,
etc will apply. If you require accommodation in
Merritt, the club will provide one night complimentary
for each day worked. You can choose to use that
on the Friday or Saturday night (usual conditions
of room sharing apply). Should you require a longer
stay, please let me know so that I can see how we
can assist you with that.
|The proposed schedule for
the event currently has a worker briefing at the
Days Inn (Merritt) on the Saturday morning at 07:30am.
The rally starts at 09:30am and is due to finish
around 05:30pm. The banquet will follow that evening.
|This year, we have introduced
a public worker and volunteer message forum. It
can be found at http://www.totalautosport.com/forums
and can be read by anyone. You do need to register
in order to post and registration
is free and accessible directly from the forum.
In the coming weeks, all announcements and notices
will be made to the forum. Important announcements
will also be sent out by e-mail to those concerned.
|There are many other subtle
changes in place for this rally. We will be making
worker assignments well in advance of the rally.
There will also be logistical information available
for workers. This will insure that you know what
is expected of you, where you are to be & when,
and most importantly, how to get there and who to
contact if you need help. All in all, you should
find the event more pleasurable and less stressful.
|If you would like to volunteer,
let me know by e-mail using peter @ rallybc.com,
sending me your contact details and mentioning any
preferences you might have.
|It is important for the future
security of events that we introduce new people
to the sport and allow them to gain experience in
a safe environment. If you know of anyone who may
like to join us but has never worked a rally before,
please ask them to contact me and volunteer.
|I look forward to hearing
