Pines Worker Notice Nov. 15, 2015
We are less than two weeks away from the 2015 Rally of the Tall Pines. The roads are in great shape, the Routebook and Notes have been finalized and printed and the Start Order has been set. Check it out on the Pines website at www.tallpinesrally.com in the Competitor Section.
Excellent competition is shaping with entries from all across Canada and the northern U.S. Check out the battles shaping up in 2WD also.
The RSO OPRC Championship has been hotly contested this year and will be settled at the Pines.
At this point 185 workers have signed up. We are fine for Thursday & Friday now, but we could still use quite a few more helpers on rally day – Saturday, November 28th, including HAM Radio Operators, Traffic Control blockers, Start/Finish Control workers and Spectator Area marshals. If you are available but have not registered, please go to the Pines website at www.tallpinesrally.com then to Worker Registration and complete your profile. Note, if you have changed your email address since last year, enter as a New Registrant and mention it also under Suggestions for me to update it on my group email list. If you have any difficulty doing that, contact me directly at ross@tallpinesrally.com. We rely heavily on the database for making our worker assignments, so please complete the registration. If something has changed in your plans, remember to update your profile and send me an email. We can accommodate requests for late arrivals and early departures. Do not hesitate to contact me to discuss your requests.
There are two draws this year for HAM radios, courtesy of Justin Cohen and Mat Janiak. Be present at the Worker Meeting for the draw and you might win one.
I have been exchanging e-mails with many of you already about specific assignments or to follow up on information that you posted in your Worker Profile. For those of you who have not heard anything yet, our committee meeting to finalize assignments is Wednesday the 18th. We will be posting a full list of assignments within a day or two after that. I can assure you that we read your comments carefully and that we will be trying to match your requests if possible. If you are not certain whether you signed up or not, just email worker_registration@tallpinesrally.com  and we will check.
Trish Groom has been very busy helping workers arrange accommodations, but a few of you have not signed up yet. Limerick is full, but we still have some subsidized spaces available for workers at Elmers and Cedar Ridge Camp. So sign up ASAP. For assistance contact Trish at accommodations@tallpinesrally.com
HAM operators will want to get your radios set up in advance. Repeater frequencies will be 147.285 with a tone of 118.8, 146.610 with a tone of 100.0 and 147.180 (no tone) and 147.000 (no tone). In addition we will be using several simplex frequencies – 146.520, 146.550 and 146.580. These are all the same as last year except for 147.000. Remember that the Rice Lake repeater will be linked in for workers coming from up from the south. It is 146.895- (tone 162.2).
We are becoming more and more active on social media. If you haven’t done so already, why not join the Facebook page (Rally of the Tall Pines)? You can also follow the rally on Twitter @TallPines Rally.  In addition we will have several other neat features, including a Tall Pines Live page that will put a number of great links on one page, including live tracking throughout the rally provided by Mark Williams and his EZ Track system plus 15 live podcasts during the day provided by Lawrence Partington of TV2GO. More details about all of this in the next Worker Notice.

If there is enough interest, we are thinking of running a training/refresher meeting for electronic timing equipment operators. If you interested, send me an email ASAP. It will likely be run on Friday evening before the general Worker Meeting.
Remember – the Worker Meeting is on Friday the 27th at 9 PM at Rally HQ.
More news to follow soon.
