• Responsible for new attendees. The Chief of Novices should coordinate with mentors and novices to make sure that novices understand the registration and tech process, how to walk the course, and may give the novice a ride along, and offer in-car instruction to the novice.
  • No set up
  • Generally, hangs out by the waiver station, and keeps an eye out for first timers. If you are not sure, ask. We do not want first timers to slip through the cracks.
  • Assemble the team
    • Should be done by event chair, but as chief, ultimately the responsibility is yours
    • Team will consist of experienced drivers.
    • May need up to ten volunteers, it is better to have to many and not use them than not enough.
  • Assign novices to a mentor
    • A mentor may have as many novices as they can handle. It is up to the Chief to know what the mentors want, and what they can handle
    • Try to assign novices to mentors in the same heat.
      • Normally, Mod, Prepared, PAX, and ST will run together, and street will be an entire heat.
      • This won’t be perfect, but do your best.
    • Make sure that your mentors are being thorough.
      • Help the novice get car ready
      • Help novices through the tech and registration process
      • Help with the course walk, explain the obstacles and cones
      • Make sure mentor and novice can ride together
        • May need to make arrangements with timing and registration.
