SCHEDULE "C" 

The Promoter is required to supply  some of the following personnel: (please read carefully)

  1. THE STARTER: (Supplied by NWMRA) This worker starts each vehicle's pass on the track and must be visible to both drivers.  Once the vehicles are staged, the starter must check with manual timers on each lane. Then the starter checks with the head electronic timer prior to activating the starting light signaling the vehicles to start each race.  The starter must ensure the staging and shut down areas are clear before flagging the vehicles to stage.

  2. TIMING VOLUNTEERS: (Supplied by the promoter) We require six manual timers for the back-up timing system  and two flaggers.

  3. TWO STAGERS: (Supplied by the NWMRA) The NWMRA supplies several workers for this duty (the starter often acts as one of the head stagers) but two additional volunteers are required to assist in organizing the pre-staging and staging areas.  The additional volunteer  stagers also assist with vehicle tow-outs.

  4. EQUIPMENT OPERATOR: (Supplied by the promoter) An equipment operator must be available at all times during the race to avoid lengthy delays.  Quite often they are required to clear the start and finish lines during the event for reasons of safety and equipment is required for tow-outs.

  5. TOW VEHICLES: (Supplied by the promoter) We request two tow trucks to assist with the removal of disabled vehicles. (skidder or 4X4 tractor and min of 100ft of cable recommended).

  6. REGISTRATION: The NWMRA supplies one volunteer to assist with the registration of race vehicles if required.  For insurance purposes, the NWMRA requires that our standard registration form and waiver be completed and these forms remain the property of the NWMRA.  Copies are the responsibility of the promoter and should be available within five (5) days to one week of the event.  The NWMRA requires signs to be posted at the registration and admission gates with an enlarged copy of the waiver.  The NWMRA also requires signs posted at all entry points of restricted areas that read, "Entry Restricted.  Pit Passes Required Past This Point".  

  7. ADMISSION GATE: This gate is the sole responsibility of the Promoter, as the NWMRA does not supply personnel for this duty.

  8. ANNOUNCER: (Supplied by NWMRA) The NWMRA supplies a reliable volunteer to work with the announcer.  The volunteer assists with supplying the announcer information on the vehicles and racers, and relays the race times and standings as they are recorded.

  9. SECURITY CREW: (Supplied by the promoter) During race hours there must be a minimum of two security officials checking the pit area for people without passes and substance abuse, there must be at least three additional officials to assist with the general public. (Totaling 5 security provided by the promoter).

  10. AMBULANCE or ETV: (Supplied by the promoter) If required, an Ambulance must be onsite during race hours and there must be two (2) fully trained level 3 attendants.  The attendants must have experience with vehicle rescue and have the required first aid equipment including neck braces, back support, burn treatments etc.  There must be phone or cellular contact with emergency services and the local emergency services must be notified of the event prior to race start. *It is highly recommended that a first aid qualified person be in attendance after race hours.

  11. Although various volunteers can assume multiple duties it is suggested that the promoter supply a minimum of 15 volunteer at all times during the race.

 

Prior to each race start, a meeting will be held with all the track volunteers, officials and directors so duties can be issued and the safety procedures can be explained to first time volunteers.  It is important that everyone attends.  This allows us to have every worker in place and prepared so there are no delays at race start.
