Send my thanks to your brother.
What do you think would be fair compensation for "volunteering" as a marshal? Bearing in mind that we want to keep costs down to make events accessible to as many people as possible?
What about donations to organisations who provide provide marshals like lions etc?
Personally I think SARRC members should support their club. If every member volunteered for only one event per year there would be ample volunteers for all events. Unfortunately times are changing so perhaps some sort of compensation should be given. What about discount membership, say:
volunteer for one event in a year and get 10% off membership the next time it is up for renewel.
two events in a year 20%
three events 50%
four events 80%
Five events and you get a years free membership?
Do you think that would encourage more members to "volunteer"?
Rachel49 called me from Mildura and said one of their local runners won the full.
