Volunteer Notice Nov 18 16

Tall Pines Volunteer Notice November 18, 2016

We are just a week away from the 2016 Rally of the Tall Pines.  At this point have 228 volunteers signed up and we will be fine if everyone shows up. The only group we could use a few more of is HAM radio operators - could still use about another 5 radio operators for mid-stage Traffic Control positions. We are fine for Thursday and Friday.

We have just posted your Worker Assignments on the Tall Pines website, but in the interest of protecting your privacy as it contains all your full names, for the Worker assignments list, we have created a hidden link at

If you find any problems with your assignments, get back to us ASAP. Note – preparing the assignments is a very complex task. A change for one volunteer almost always has a domino effect, so unless there is a real problem with your assignments, we would appreciate if you would accept them as they are. We really did try to accommodate all your requests, as best we could.

As you will see when you check the Assignments list, Saturday’s are pretty much completed and Friday’s are well underway. If you see a blank by your name for Friday, rest assured that we  need you, but that is still a work in progress. In fact we have found that it is best to leave some unspecified until you arrive to give us a bit more flexibility in covering off our needs. When you arrive on Thursday or Friday, first see Carole Koch to get registered, then if you need clarification re your duties, see Greg McGrath.
All Thursday volunteers will receive instructions directly from me by email early next week.

As for the Subsidized Worker Accommodations , Limerick Lake Lodge is full, but there are a few spots left at Elmer’s Hunt Camp. Sign up in the Worker Section of the website. If you have problems, contact Trish at accommodations@tallpinesrally.com
Note – for those of you who had difficulty paying online, you can also do it bay an e transfer to treasurer@mlrc.ca  

We can still handle a few more participants in the e timing refresher/training session. It will be held on Friday evening at 7 PM before the General Worker meeting. Contact Ross  ross@tallpinesrally.com if interested and I will send you details.

Arrangements have been completed with a caterer to have food and drink available at Rally HQ  on Friday from 11:00 AM – 7:00 PM and on Saturday from 8:00 AM – 4:00 PM. We will try to have more details in the next Worker Notice week.

The roads are in great shape and all gravel at the moment. At this point I wouldn’t want to predict if they will be snow-covered, part gravel or what next weekend, although the forecast is calling for a good dump of snow this weekend. Early next week we should know better. Nevertheless we highly recommend that you have your winter tires on.
For those of you who will be working controls, be sure to bring suitable clothing, food & drink and a flashlight or headlamp and spare batteries

For the HAM operators, the main frequency for the weekend will be 147.285+ with a tone of 118.8. The two other repeater frequencies are 146.610- with a tone of 100.0, and 147.000 (no tone). Simplex frequencies are 146.520, 146.550 and 146.580. Be sure to have them all programmed in your radio.

For those of you who will be around Bancroft on Thursday evening, Robbie’s Hobbies at 29640 Hwy. 62 is offering a great discount to rally volunteers.

A majority of the Worker Documents have now been posted on the Pines website at www.tallpinesrally.com  Go to Workers, Worker Info Centre and Worker Documents. Please take the time before next weekend to go over these documents carefully.

Things are shaping up really well for next weekend. The Start Order is posted in the Competitor section of the Tall Pines website at www.tallpinesrally.com  Really hot competition is shaping up.

Remember that the general Worker Meeting will be held at 9 PM on Friday, November 25 at Rally HQ in the Dungannon Rec Centre.   For those of you coming for the first time, Rally HQ is located on the E side of Hwy 62 S about 7 km S of Bancroft (street address is 26596 Hwy 62 S, L’Amable, ON – coordinates N45 00.873 W077 47.164 phone 613-332-1325).  
There will likely be one final Worker Notice next Tuesday or Wednesday.
Looking forward to seeing you all in Bancroft.

Ross Wood, Clerk of the Course
