Scottish "Borders" Hill Rally - Volunteers Require

Scottish "Borders" Hill Rally - Volunteers Required - 21st & 22nd November 2015
The "Borders" is an exciting, fast paced Off-Road Rally through the flowing tracks of the private Forrest Estate (near St John's Town of Dalry, DG7 3XS) and takes in many of the technical, natural quarries and man-made off-road sections.   The competitors will be racing in excess of 100 miles, through 13 special stages over both Saturday and Sunday.
This year's event offers the climax to both the 2015 Hill Rally Championship and the Defender Challenge Series with competitors travelling from all over the UK and beyond.
We are looking for a large team of Marshals to ensure the event can run safely.   Marshals are required to assist with start and finish time controls, to be flag marshals at key locations along the special stages, ensuring cars pass through the stages and don't get lost in the under-growth, get stuck or crash out, act as Radio Marshals and generally ensure the successful running of the event.   You will be in the thick of the action!!!
If you can volunteer please comment below, message me or email dean.pugh@virgin.net
Do you have to be a Registered Marshal with the Motor Sport Association (MSA)?   No, whilst MSA Marshal Registration and experience are useful they are not mandatory.   Even if you have never marshalled before, you will be made very welcome and can be teamed up with more experienced marshals if desired.
Will Training be provided?   Yes, there is a formal training evening on Friday the 20th of November which will be run by the MSA.   Whilst this is recommended, again it is not mandatory.   Experienced marshals and other officials are always on hand to offer support and guidance throughout the weekend.
Do you need a 4x4 to help out?   All the main areas are accessible along the main forest tracks by normal road car, so no problem.   If you do have a 4x4 you can take the easy access routes or follow the more challenging rally route!!!   In either case, you will be amongst some of the most stunning scenery the Galloway Forest has to offer.
Do you need to do both days?   No, we would love to have you help out both days, in which case we can ensure you have a variety of tasks to do.   But, if you would prefer to only commit to one, that would be great too.
Is accommodation and catering available?   Free "Rustic" camping is available on site for Caravans and Tents , but no drinking water, so please ensure you bring your own.   A catering van will be in the main Service & Rally HQ area.   Toilet facilities will be there too.   Otherwise there are plenty of accommodation options in St John's Town of Dalry and the surrounding villages.
Who should I contact to volunteer or ask questions?   Me, by commenting below, messaging me or emailing dean.pugh@virgin.net .

A couple of guys from the Disco 3/4 forum across the page came up last year and had a great time. If you can help out, please get in touch.

Many thanks,
