TALL PINES VOLUNTEER NOTICE Sept 26, 2021
It's time to start getting you volunteers registered for the 2021 Lincoln Electric Rally of the Tall Pines. Please be sure to mark the November 19-21 weekend on your calendar. That is the weekend for the 2021 Rally of the Tall Pines. The Tall Pines committee has been hard at work and it's time to get the volunteers signed up.
As the Pines keeps growing and adding exciting new features, our needs for volunteers are greater than ever. So please pass this message on to others.
Check out the Pines website at www.tallpinesrally.com for details.
While on the website, if you have not already registered for 2021, please go to the worker section and register. We have tried to keep the process very straightforward for you. So whether you registered as a worker previously or are a first-time registrant, you can go directly to the Volunteer section of the website at www.tallpinesrally.com/volunteer/ , then follow the instructions from there to either update your profile or to create a new profile. If that doesn't work, contact one of the worker registration team at firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance. Note - be sure to answer at the top 'Yes' to "I am registering as a worker for the Rally of the Tall Pines 2021. When you have completed your registration or update, click on 'Submit' at the bottom of the page. We need all of you, including committee, stewards etc. to register, as we work extensively with the database to make plans. Note - our volunteer needs on Thursday are very specific and mostly require experienced help. Contact us directly about Thursday tasks.
As in the past we are assisting volunteers with subsidized accommodations. See 'Accommodations' in the Worker section for full details and for online payment. Subsidized accommodations will be provided once again at Elmer's Hunt Camp, at Limerick Lake Lodge and at some cottages. If you stay two nights, you pay for the first night and the rally pays for the second. Anyone staying three nights should first check with Ross re subsidy. To assist workers in the Registration process and in finding accommodations at the Pines we have Jane Leonard waiting to assist you re accommodations and Greg McGrath re other Registration questions. If you have questions, one of us will be sure to reply. You can contact Jane directly at email@example.com or Greg at firstname.lastname@example.org
With a super compact Route Plan and Schedule, we are able to squeeze two passes of recce for all stages into Friday, so we will need helpers to supervise that all day. Meanwhile we will be doing the usual final route preparation, so we will need just a few helpers on Thursday and lots of helpers on Friday. In addition Shakedown is scheduled on Friday evening. The rally runs all day Saturday as usual, however one of many changes in response to COVID-19 (more about that coming), there will be no Awards Banquet on Saturday evening.
Rally Headquarters will be at the Dungannon Rec Centre on Hwy. 62 south. Almost all activities will take place there. Note also that Technical Inspection of the competitors' cars will take place at M & M Parts & Service (the big building behind M & M ESSO on Hwy 62 S) on Friday afternoon and evening. The official VOLUNTEERS' MEETING will likely be held at Rally HQ at 9 P.M. on Friday evening or we may do it entirely virtually earlier in the week, but under a different format (no monster group in-person meeting). Still working out details how we will do that virtually or partially virtually.
We also need lots of help on the WORK DAY on SATURDAY, OCTOBER 23. We still must deliver letters to residents, do some work on the stages and other things. Please advise if you can attend then by e mailing Ross Wood directly at email@example.com Note - competitors are invited to assist on the Work Day. This not only offers them an opportunity to contribute to the event, but also affords a chance to preview the stages.
Note - we will again be using EZTrak for tracking and timing and the RallySport Ontario electronic timing equipment. If you already have experience with the equipment and would like to work with it at the Pines, be sure to indicate specifically what you would like to do on your Registration form.
If you have any further questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me or Greg or Jane.
Re COVID-19, there will changes to reduce risk to everyone. A few of the changes were mentioned above; lots more information to follow in upcoming messages.
