New member - New marshal

Hello.
Found this forum having had a dig through the web and seems a good place to be!
I have recently signed up with BARC and do my first day on the 1st March, training at Thruxton.
What are your views on joining BMMC??
Will no doubt have lots of questions, Cheers.

Hi there, I too am new to this forum, but have been marshalling since July 07, only done 1 event though. The forums are good and friendly. You will enjoy it.

Hello to both of you I'm another newbie, I started marshalling in August last year and since then I've done eight events. I've found this website to be a great source for answering questions - everyone seems to be very willing to share their knowledge and experience, so don't be afraid to ask!

Welcome to the three of you, and all other trainees. It was good to see so many at the recent training days.
Please feel free to ask any questions you want, there is no such thing as a stupid question, we were all in your position once.
Especially went you are on the bank, or where ever, if there is ANYTHING you are not sure about, ask. We won't bite and we need all the marshals we can get.
Above all stay safe and have fun!

Welcome to the newcomers to the great family of marshalling . Sonic asked about joining the BMMC - it's the only club existing solely to promote marshals' interests and in my view deserves support. It also provides extra insurance cover while at or travelling to/from events

Hi to all of you, welcome the mad world of marshalling and tenths. As previously said, ask any questions you like, even if they seem trivial. I am the '' New Marshal Liason Officer'' for the South Mids region of the BMMC, a club certainly worth joining. If any of you find your way to Silverstone, Rockingham, Mallory Park or Donington Park just ask someone to point me out, and I'll be glad to be of any assistance I can

Hi

I'm also new to the forum, attended this and last years training events and 2 events last year.

Just sent my volunteering form for this year and looking forward to this season at Oulton.

I have been a member of BRSCC all of last season and just joined BMMC, they give lots of support for the marshals and there membership is a small amount opening up discounts on things like overalls therefore would recommend it.

Well thanks for the replies...what a friendly bunch you are!!!
I think I will be joining the BMMC, I spoke to a chap on the phone from the BMMC and a lot of what he said made sense.
He also told me to download and complete an MSA marshal registration card from the site and they will send it on to the MSA suitably endorsed.
So off to get some funky orange waterproofs and then get myself a pair of snazy overalls....
Any advice on the overalls front, I have seen the ones available from AWS and also BARC but is there a favourite/best type?
See I said there would be questions!!

Overalls...Aaaaaaarrrrgggghhhh
Probans you mean .......

They say orange is all the rage this year
Its a case of 6 of 1 half a dozen of the other.
they all vary in price some with logo`s some not.
I got a BARC pair,good fit,nice logo`s & you can get you name put on them for a few extra quid.
also you might wanna think of getting a pair of welders gloves,comes in very handy when having to push a car,pick up warm bits of exhaust ect
they`re usually a few quid.

I got mine from AWS using my BMMC membership discount. Very comfortable. If you can afford it get made to measure, you get a 50% discount on that, as you need to be really comfortable in them as you could have them on for over 12 hours in a day. There are other makes/brands but I can't comment on them as I've never bought them. AWs also do gloves as well. I've got a couple of pairs & again never had any problems with them.
Overall (no pun intented) I can't faut AWS, really helpfull & patient on the phone. Good quality materials. Very very quick delivery. If you need them for a certain day they do their best to get them to you.

Off topic a little but does anyone know who supplies Racesafe with the probans that they give their members?

Welcome to the forumn & the mad world of orange. I'm new as well & all questions I've asked have been answered really quickly with a good sense of humour & a family like atmosphere.
