Event Traffic Controller course for 22 June 2019
The next ETC Training course is on Saturday 22nd June. YOU WILL NOT HAVE TO PAY – ACT Government is funding the training.
We currently only have about 40 ETCs from a club of 300 members. Members need to share the burden of helping to run races. Having enough traffic controllers available in the club is critical to our ability to run races in the ACT and it is likely we will need to have ETCs for NSW races in the future. ETCs are eligible for reimbursement of $100 for marshalling at ACT road races.
Course details are available on Blended Learning’s web site – http://www.blendedlearning.edu.au/home/courses/programs-courses/event-traffic-controller/.
Upcoming Marshal Roster
Thank you to those who have already volunteered to help. Nominees, in blue have been selected based on results from the previous race season and the period since they last helped at a race. Nominees are requested to advise their availability/unavailability to the race committee (firstname.lastname@example.org) as soon as possible.
Summer series crit races are held at Stromlo Forest Park on Tuesday evenings and road races are held on Sunday mornings.
