Jumbo Javalin Targa Sunday 20th May - Marshals Final Instruction

Marshal Registration closed a few days ago , but all the Registered Marshals should have received their Final Instruction yesterday.

If anyone hasn't recieved theirs please contact me immediately.

Amazing that the event had a dozen reserve entries a week ago , and now there are just 3.

Fabulous

Yet again, a brilliant weekend at Wethersfield for the Javalin's Jumbo Targa. At the Finish of Tests 1 and 6, and then the Start of Tests 15 and 19, we did not hear a single whinge from any competitors - always excepting of course the occasional overheard "Why did we go right when I said go left at FF ?? " coming from a car.  Such success is always due, of course, to the prior planning and attention to detail that Chelmsford MC is well known for,

For future events, can we ask that the caterers are required to be able to offer something other than bacon or burger ? Although she loves marshalling as much as I do, Mrs Dryhen has been a veggie for over 30 years and only agreees to be out of bed at 06.00hrs on a Sunday when she's promised a double-egg roll and coffee on arrival at Wethersfield. Frankly, to call yourself a caterer and not be able to fry an egg or two for someone who will not eat a piece of an animal is simply not acceptable !

Targa Marshal Thanks & EA Classic Marshal plea + Eggs

May I pass on my thanks to my co-organisers and marshals for your hard work,   and to the competitors for your good humour , on what was a tough and competitive event yesterday.

Tony Burchnall is looking for marshals on the clubs next event - the East Anglian Classic on Saturday 16th June.    THIS IS AN IDEAL OPPORTUNITY FOR TARGA COMPETITORS THAT DO NOT MARSHAL ON THE CLUBS OTHER EVENTS TO "GIVE A IT BACK TO THE CLUB" - PLEASE.

George - your Caterer comments acknowledged.  It was a late call in finding Clearwater Coffee and I know they could have done a more varied offering - if I'd asked them. They were happy with their day and if they come again I promise to arrange a veggie option.

EAC Road Marshals

JIM,

Thanks for the pitch for EAC Marshals. This year we have several more IRTC crews needed in addition to test marshals.

We would be very pleased to hear from anyone with Road Rally marshalling experience, or experience as a competitor on 12-cars, to deal with Regularity controls. It isn't a difficult job but you will need to be able to find your controls reliably from a map. Otherwise it's pretty similar to other road timing and we'll explain it all and make sure that you are happy running your control.

It is best done with two people as a crew as there may be navigation handouts to issue as well as looking after a time clock and checksheet.

We do also need some more test marshals for Thorpe Abbotts, as timekeepers and spotters on the tests. It won't mean a silly-early start, nor a very long day and you'll have time to see the great little museum and use their cafe too.

Please register on the webpage or, if you have any questions post here or pm me. Thanks.

Tony Burchnall EAC CM.
