MEMBERSHIPS
If you have not renewed your ACTMCRC membership you will no longer be eligible to receive the discounted membership racing fees.

You can renew your membership by completing the Membership Form found on the website http://www.actmcrc.org.au/membership.htm and paying your fee (either in cash to Dan at the Canteen OR via direct bank transfer (details on the Form):

$45 for full members $25 for Concession and Full-Time students $60 for a family

The next membership year ends on 31 March 2008. If paying via Direct Deposit, please email Dan at Treasurer@ACTMCRC.org.au and tell him that you are paying via direct deposit.

Also for Family memberships a new rule has passed where the first racer pays full price then if your Son / Daughter / Partner races they only pay $5 for each class.

Marshalling
We are noticing that the marshals after having their race are just going back to the pits and sitting down. Starting Tuesday after you finish your race you must put your car AND transmitter in parc ferme and heading out to marshall. On the last Clubman night we had to hold the next race numerous times because of this.
