TALL PINES VOLUNTEER NOTICE – Oct. 28-2016

Worker registrations have been coming in steadily; we are now at 127. We need about 20 more for Friday, Nov. 25, and 100 more for rally day, Saturday, Nov. 26, so if you have been procrastinating, please sign up ASAP.

If you registered, but did not receive a confirmation email, it likely means that your registration did not go through, so please try again. If you have any problem doing that or have any questions about anything, contact the Worker Registration team at [email protected] and one of us will get back to you.

BTW, how about convincing some others to come with you?

In particular we are still in need of help with HAM radio communications, stage timing marshals, traffic control marshals (blockers), crowd control marshals and media marshals. Note – we can accommodate those of you who can only help out for part of the day on November 26.

So to recap - to register as a worker for this year’s event, go to the Pines website at http://www.tallpinesrally.com then to the ‘WORKERS’ tab then to ‘Register’ and follow the cues from there.

Subsidized Worker Accommodations
Have you booked your room yet? We can only hold those rooms for so long, then will have to let them go. The online subsidized accommodations registration process is now active. Remember – you must stay at one of the approved locations to receive a subsidy. Note – you must have logged into the website to see the full menu.

If you have any questions, Trish Groom, our Worker Accommodations Coordinator, is waiting to assist you. You can contact her at [email protected]

Accommodations Payment – you can sign up directly on the Pines website at http://www.tallpinesrally.com then follow the tabs to Worker Info Centre, Accommodations, then Accommodations Payment Form to purchase an accommodations package. Accommodations must be paid in full prior to November 17. Basically if you stay at one of the approved facilities listed on the website, you pay for the first night and the rally will pay for the second night. For approval of extra nights beyond that for people coming early, contact me directly at [email protected].

Note – paying for the subsidized accommodations is a bit different than before, as we have switched to Paypal. But if you want to pay by credit card, just go to the bottom of the payment screen and pick the credit card you want to use.

Second note – before payment will go through, you must click on the box agreeing to Paypal’s terms. This does NOT mean you have to create a Paypal account

Worker Information Posted
We are posting much more of the worker information in advance again this year, so that you can access it before the rally and read it through carefully. In fact the entire revised Worker Handbook is now online. We urge you to read it completely. To access it, go to http://www.tallpinesrally.com, log in, then follow the tabs to Workers, Worker Info Centre, Worker Documents and then Worker Handbook.

About one week before the rally, we will be posting all the worker assignments.

Worker Meeting
The official WORKER’S MEETING will be held at Rally HQ at the Dungannon Recreation Centre at 9 p.m. on Friday evening.

I hope more of you are signing up to work Tall Pines. We have some MCO teams* running this year, and it's always fun to cheer them on!

Look for:
Peter MacDonald / Ferdinand Trauttmansdorff -- Car 29
Mathieu Ayotte / Tom McCabe -- Car 38
David Lamarre / Vincent Aze Trudel -- Car 19

We're up to 25 teams as of today. EDIT: 30 teams at seeded draw.

* With at least one member belonging to MCO.

This year will be a new experience for Jim and I. Jim will be crew chief for BIA Motorsports (Mathieu and Tom, Car 38). I'll be doing scrutineering on Friday and crewing for them on Saturday. :mrgreen:
