GUIDELINES FOR MARSHALS

Field and Club Marshals are very important in the successful running of your event and all car clubs are asked to assist in these two areas. Clubs are requested to supply at least one Field Marshal and Club Marshals as listed below. These marshals must be legally qualified to direct vehicles. If you would like to qualify, you will need to attend a S.A Police Training session, for session details refer to Marshall Training below. Then register your intentions in the Event Assistance section of the All British Day entry form.  

FIELD MARSHALS

These marshals must be legally qualified to direct vehicles. Some of these marshals will be rostered from 7.30am to sort and direct the entrant and other vehicles into and around the recreation ground and ovals. Some marshals will be rostered to deal with the entrants coming in from 9.00am to 10.30am. At 3.00pm we will also require some marshals to assist with the orderly departure of entrants from the grounds in conjunction with the CFS. The Field Marshal’s duties are all quite straightforward and volunteers will be contacted prior to the event.

CLUB MARSHALS 

These marshals must be legally qualified to direct vehicles. All clubs with more than 8 entrants are asked to supply a Club Marshal.  25 entrants or more requires 2 or more Club Marshals.  A Club Marshal’s duty is to place their own club’s vehicles in the allocated area on the oval. The Club Marshal will receive the club’s Oval Position Numbers and the size of area allotted per vehicle, prior to the event. The Club Marshal should arrive about 8:30 am so that their club’s vehicles can be parked quickly and efficiently in the allocated area when the gates open at 9:00.

MARSHAL TRAINING

Friday February 2nd 2018.  Each year, on the Friday night a week before the event, we hold a Police Marshal training class.  Starting at 7.30pm, it is a short course and will finish approximately 8.30pm.  Once you have participated in this training you are a recognized Marshal for life. Well worth the effort as you can then use this qualification for your own club events.  Clubs and individuals are invited to attend regardless of participation in the All British Day event and should contact the ABD Committee. (See About Us page)
