QuoteI would like to help do tech in, or registration. How does one go about being a safety stewardess
Quote from: twisted_nutIf you've got the red flag, you are responsible for protecting the car and corner workers downstream of (i.e. already past) your position. The car upstream (headed toward you) is obviously important, and you want to keep it in your peripheral vision, but it is the course _downstream_ where you have to have part (1) of your attention. You have to watch that the car downstream does not develop a problem, like stalled, and that the cone chasers aren't falling over or dawdling with the cones. You have to take all that in, and make the decision to _not_ flag the oncoming car _if_ everything is OK. The other part (2) of your attention is to be aware of where that upstream car is in relation to the place where you're standing (i.e. don't get hit) and where you can safely do the flagging thing if need be. D'oh. Well, that's pretty obvious, I suppose. But I was just wondering aloud...
Quote from: stevers on March 30, 2010, 11:34:59 amWith the season fast approaching, I'd like to remind everyone about course working. I'm looking for some people to step up and learn some new worker assignments. Particularly grid (and starter but it's pretty straight forward). I'd like to get more people "trained" in other work assignments besides shagging cones. Plus I would like to mix things up and not give the same people the same assignment at every event. If you are up to the task, please let myself, Frank, Justin, or anyone on the board know. I will try to put you with an experienced worker to shadow for an event (if numbers allow us to do so).Thanks
