This scheme is designed to ensure that the Clubs Members
and Competitors support the Sport, the Club and its events. It is an
expectation of all Competitors to support the Club. This scheme is designed to
ensure that everyone does so and that it is managed in a fair and transparent
All JMC & LCC events are part of this scheme.
Every time you enter an event one point will be deducted
from your account. You can earn points for your account through ‘commitments’
and volunteering to ‘supply’. Account scores will run for life.
Event Entry & Voluntary Supply
Event Entry & Asked To Supply
Grass Track, Sand Race or ½ Day Trial
All-Day Trial / Jersey Rally (per session) / Hill Climb /
Moto-X / Multi-Surface Rally / Sprint
Late Entry (if
permitted by the Event Chairman)
Prior to entering your first event of the calendar year
you must complete a Commitment Form and return it to the General Secretary for
your entry to be accepted.
You (the competitor or parent of a junior) must complete a
minimum of +8 points worth of ‘Commitments’. The eight points can be earned at a
single all-day event or by a combination of shorter half-day events. In the
event that your preferred commitment(s) is already full then you will be
advised by the General Secretary and you will have to submit a new Commitment
Form. When signing the form you will be confirming that the event relies upon
your attendance and the appropriate penalty score will be deducted for
non-attendance, regardless of the reason.
You can use another adult to complete your commitment and they
do not have to be a Club Member. If you chose to do so you will be asked to
supply the name of this person before the event.
In the event that the person who you use to complete your
commitment fails to attend then you will be prevented from entering any future
events until you yourself have completed commitment(s) to the value of 8
Forms can be downloaded from the Club website and you will
be notified closer to the event of the time and place to report.
You can amend your commitment(s) by submitting a new
commitment form to the General Secretary, but this must be done before the
event entry closing date.
Supplying Marshals / Officials (voluntarily)
Event Entry Forms have a tick box where you can indicate
if you would like to supply at the event. For online entries please state that
you would like to supply in the ‘Comments’ box. If you book ahead with supplies
you are more likely to get your choice(s). You can only do this by submitting Entry
Forms ahead of time with post-dated cheques.
Supplying Marshals / Officials (asked)
If after the event entry closing date the total commitments
and voluntary supplies received is not enough the remaining Marshals/Officials will
come from Competitors who will be required to ‘Supply’. The competitors will be
chosen based on those that have the lowest scores in the Marshal Scheme.
Once informed that you are required to ‘Supply’, the event
will be relying on you doing so. If you cancel your entry after the closing
date you will still be required to ‘Supply’. If you don’t, then penalty points
will be deducted from your account regardless of the reason.
If you are competing and your ‘Supply’ does not turn up
you will not be allowed to compete and you must cover the marshal/official role
allocated. This also applied to if you volunteered to
supply and then don’t compete, you will still be required to ‘Supply’. The deduction will be -10 points.
First Come First Served
All requests for Commitments and Supplying will be dealt
with on a first come, first served basis.
Commitment Forms are required before your first event of
the calendar year as a Competitor.
If it is your preference to ‘Supply’ at your events please
send in your Entry Forms early as described above.
To avoid disappointment please try to plan ahead and
submit your forms in good time.
As Juniors Members are not old enough to marshal or carry
out official duties at many events, in order to manage their accounts their
parents/guardians will be required to do this for them. They can either
volunteer to help at an event where the junior is competing or commit to an
event where the junior is not
competing to earn the appropriate commitment points. When more than one child
of a parent rides/drives at the same event, or if the parent and child ride at
the same event, the 1 entry point will be shared equally between the competitors.
i.e. 2 family members racing = -½ point for each for entry. Likewise, if a
parent who has two children that compete carries out a Commitment the points
earned are awarded to both children. This ensures that the parents of multiple entrant
families are not burdened with an impossible task to keep their points in
to the Club will not be required to complete a commitment form and will not
lose any points for event entries during the calendar year in which they join
member is anyone who is not listed on the master Marshals Spreadsheet held by
the General Secretary.
If your score reaches 0 points you will have reached the
overdraft limit. This means that you won’t be able to enter any events until
you have increased your score. This can be done by either volunteering to ‘Supply’
or completing Commitments.
If the event is cancelled before the day no competitors or
marshals/officials will receive or lose any points. If the
event is cancelled on the day but prior to signing-on only those officials who
have completed duties prior to the cancelation will be awarded points.
the event of an event which takes place towards the end of the calendar year
being cancelled any commitment requirements will be carried over to the
following year, however these must be completed before a competitor’s first
event of the following year.
Queries / Appeals
Please call or email Marshals Committee Chairman with any
questions, suggestions or just for advice on how you can work with the scheme
to your best advantage.
Points will be published on a quarterly basis on the
website and with event entry paperwork.
It is your responsibility to ensure your points are correct. Queries will be heard for the previous
quarter only. Once the next set of points
are published then it will be deemed that there are no queries outstanding.
The scheme is designed to ensure that all events can take
place with the required amount of skilled and experienced personnel. Without
the support and assistance of all the competitors to the Club there would be no
sport to compete in.
TOP TIP: - If you think there is a good chance that you
will be asked to ‘Supply’ at an event, volunteer to ‘Supply’ instead. It will
earn you one point and could reduce your chance of being asked at your next
These rules can and will be amended if deemed necessary by
the Marshal Committee.
