Our club is 100% volunteer run and we count on our members to step in and help with the many jobs to get our race days completed on a tight schedule. We will be having introductory training sessions at various times in the morning for scales marshall, manual scoring, engine painting, listen for the announcements. We also invite anyone interested in learning the scoring system to join us up in the tower (above the concession stand). The more people know how to do these jobs, the better prepared we will be to cover all these critical roles !
