1) Invitational Events
Some years the Northern Combine (NC) fixture includes some invitational events hosted by non-NC clubs. These are 'fixture sharing' in nature and run on a reciprocal invitational basis. The NC does not control entries to these invitational events and as a result, these are excluded from this offer.
To be recognised as a volunteer, you need to register for a volunteer duty.
The Volunteer Coordinator then confirms you in a duty, and hopefully is able to accommodate your preferences.
You are expected to complete one duty at some point in the season (noting that you give up vol status if no mutually suitable duty can be found between yourself & the vol co-ordinator).
You cannot race on the day you perform your duty (unless - see next)
You can have someone else perform your duty on your behalf (must be as capable and willing as you are)
All vols are briefed prior to their roles so do not necessarily need direct race volunteer experience.
This is a season pass, and that season offer is in the context of COVID. Riders are asked to bear some risk themselves if race cancellations are required due to COVID. The Northern Combine is NOT looking to offer pro-rata discounts if the full season cannot be delivered due to COVID cancellations, especially if the refund amount is immaterial and the admin effort high. Having said that, a 'fair & reasonable' approach will be taken with respect to partial refunds if a large part of the season is not able to proceed.
See volunteersignup.org links in table above.
Once the volunteer roster is full, we'll be closing this offer. NC club members will be given preferential entry (but still need to be quick).
Yes - you'll still need to enter races, you just won't need to pay any more. This is to prevent "no shows" impacting the integrity of the startlists for individual races - especially handicaps.
Sorry, no refunds or partial refunds (noting we will always meet legal requirements).
Yes, volunteers can enter & pay race-by-race ($15) as normal.
The Season pass is completely optional and offered as a special reward for those who give back to racing through volunteering.

As long as you volunteer for a duty during the NC season, you qualify to buy the season pass (i.e. can be a member of any club).
