Treasure Hunt Success

The Treasure Hunt on Sunday the 15th of Oct was a complete success, all the entrants managed to find the start, complete the route and more importantly find the finish for the carvery. The weather stayed dry so some people came in their classics, it was a great excuse to go for a drive down some roads you never knew existed. We had some people who had never had a go before and some who were trying to retain their title as the winners from last year.

One team turned up on the day without pre booking, luckily we had a spare slot for them, however they managed to finish IN TIME, brought back all the bits we asked for – which was a helicopter, a well-dressed lion and a feather, which meant that they won the day!

Well done to team ‘GILBERN!!!’

We should also give thanks to the King William Inne, you provided us with a fantastic selection of food for the carvery, everyone was very impressed, it went down a storm.

Thank you to all of you who came along, we hope you enjoyed it and hopefully we will see you again next year.

Thanks,

Kristian and Natalie

2016 Marshals training and accreditation

MSA launches online marshals’ training and accreditation

Legendary co-driver Nicky Grist helped the Motor Sports Association (MSA) launch a new online training and accreditation scheme for rally and cross country marshals today at Autosport International.

The scheme is part of the RallyFuture campaign to further enhance safety on UK stage rallies. Its purpose is to ensure that all Rally marshals have a common understanding of their roles and responsibilities, the management of spectators and how to handle an incident.

The online training takes less than an hour to complete, and has been designed as a supplement to – not a replacement for – the high quality face-to-face training sessions currently being delivered across the UK.

Nicky Grist said: “Safety has become a highly contentious issue. This new scheme will dramatically speed up and improve the quality of new marshals, and it’s exciting that they can now do it online and so quickly.”

Jon Binns, Marshals’ Representative on the Motor Sports Council, said: “I wholeheartedly support what the MSA is striving to deliver with the new online marshals’ training and accreditation scheme. It will help to ensure that everyone who marshals on a rally stage will have received a common level of training relating to their personal safety, managing spectators and what to do if an incident occurs. This not only better equips them to do their roles but also demonstrates to external third parties that we take safety very seriously.”

Existing and prospective Marshals can undertake online training and accreditation by logging in or registering atmembers.msauk.org.

FAQ

Why do experienced marshals have to do this?
All marshals should have a common set of basic skills to protect themselves and others on the stages. This includes first-on-scene training. The MSA aims to ensure that the training is useful and relevant to everyone.

What are the contents and how long does it take to do?
There are three modules: Roles & Responsibilities of the Marshal; Spectator Management; and Incident Management. It should take a maximum of one hour to complete, including the online assessment.

What is the process?
Simply register online via the MSA’s members’ site at members.msauk.org. Then follow the links to the learning management system and proceed.

What will happen if you do not pass?
You can simply retake once you have re-read the sections you didn’t quite manage first time.

Do all Marshals have to complete the on-line scheme, regardless of status?
Yes but you can apply to register at the grade for which you are most experienced. If you wish to apply for a grade higher than trainee you will need to supply the MSA with an application form endorsed by your club and a CV covering your motorsport history.

Do you have to complete the online scheme every year?
No – it is a one-off for everyone.

When do all Marshals have to be registered by?
From now on, online training and accreditation will be compulsory for new/first-time rally and cross country marshals. Existing marshals are encouraged to complete it as soon as possible and will need to do so before renewing their 2017 registration.

If a Marshal chooses not to register will he/she still be able to marshal?
There will continue to be a buddying system, which will allow non-accredited marshals to join accredited volunteers on events. This will also help to ensure we don’t lose opportunities to recruit new volunteers. All marshals will need to complete the online scheme before marshalling unsupervised – a non-accredited marshal will not be able to man a junction on his or her own, for example.

Will marshals still require a club endorsement on the application form?
For 2016, new marshals will not require club endorsement. However, they will need endorsement when they come to upgrade.

How will the grade be decided for existing marshals?
In the same way as for race, it will be decided by a small committee upon submission of a CV and an application form endorsed by the club.

Marshal registration

Hello all current and potential new marshals. The MSA will soon be bringing in new ruling that all marshals must be registered, in order to help out initially at rally events, but eventually in all disaplins. This is a free process, and just requires a form to be filled in, and your motor club official, to endorse it for you.

You can download the form from the following link, or from the MSA website

Many thanks for your partisipation.

Club quiz

Hi everyone.

I just wanted to jog your memory regarding the motor club quiz on Friday 4th of December. I’m sure you’ve all seen the ads for it, but it is easy to forget or overlook, so please let Pete or Myself know if you can make it, through the usual channels, or just reply to this. I’ts open to friends and family as well, so don’t worry if ‘you’re not a team’, just turn up at 7pm for a 7.30pm start, and team up with others. A sumptuous buffet is available at £12 pp, which you can let us know of when you book places.
Look forward to seeing you there.
Matt.
