Addition of a Beach Marshal
We have an important development to share with you. In an effort to improve the organization of our events, the TGSA has decided to replace the traditional tallying position with the newly established Beach Marshal role.
What Does the Beach Marshal Do?
The Beach Marshal will play a pivotal role in ensuring the efficiency and fairness of our surfing competitions. Their responsibilities encompass:
Competitor Check-In: Beach Marshals will oversee the registration process, ensuring that competitors are checked in and ready for their heats on time.
Distribution of Contest Jerseys: They will be responsible for handing out contest jerseys and ensuring that each competitor receives the correct jersey color. This is crucial to maintain the accuracy of judging.
Providing Event Information: Beach Marshals will be available to address any questions or concerns from contestants and provide guidance on special instructions or event logistics in coordination with the Competition Director and Surfer Rep as needed.
Alternate Entries: In collaboration with the Competition Director, Beach Marshals will ensure that alternates are correctly integrated into heats, ensuring a seamless competition flow.
Jersey Collection: Following the completion of heats, Beach Marshals will collect and check back in the jerseys. It is imperative that competitors promptly return their jerseys. Failure to do so will result in a charge of $40 for the missing jersey.
This transition to the Beach Marshal position is a strategic step to enhance the overall experience for all involved in our competitions. We believe it will contribute to the efficiency and accuracy of event operations.
