The Club needs Marshals to help at out The White House services on the A30 at Okehampton, Devon Control Stop. These Marshals should preferably be CT members, but this is not critical.
The Control will be open from 05.07 hrs and shut at 06.07 hrs on the Sunday morning.
Marshals will have a number of duties to perform:
A) Make contact with the owners or managers of the establishment we are using.
B) Put up CT Banners and establish the location that the Signing In Marshals will use.
C) Open the Control at the designated time.
D) Show Entrants where to park (Some Marshals will do the signing in, others will Marshal te cars as they arrive).
E) Sign and state the time of the signature in Entrants Road Books. At some Controls we will want Entrants to stay for the designated duration (This is stated in the Road Book), this will mean returning the road books after the entrants have been at the stop the correct amount of time.
F) Close the Control at the designated time and inform the owners or manager of the establishment of this fact.
G) The Chief Control Marshal will have called through with the listing of retirees, therefore the Marshals will be asked to call the CCM to let him know about any crews that have not passed through the Control, so he can inform the Marshals at the next Control. Text messages can be used for this task.
Marshals will be supplied with CT vinyl banners, CT hi vis waistcoats, Entrant checklist and a copy each of the Road Book.
This all sounds quite onerous, it is not. There is some responsibility, but all very simple once one is in the swing of things. It affords one the chance to get involved in this great event and hopefully see what the fuss is all about. Many who Marshal will take part in the next RBRR.
Please talk to me, Tim Bancroft if you are interested in helping out on either 07966 289 782 or firstname.lastname@example.org
It goes without saying that without Control Marshals the event cannot be run, so if you can help out, please let me know.
