2007 Points System

Folks,

The advisory committee came up with the following point system after some meaningful input from all its members. The following is recommended and we encourage all its members to view the document and any suggestions can be discussed at the next meeting.

In an effort to bring closure to this document, we request that you make recommendation(s) to the suggested point system and this will be further discussed by the committee and once agreed will be adopted and finalized.

Please do not criticize the document without any suggestion as this will delay and discourage any positive action( s) by committee members and can further result in non participation of members. This is not isolated to this committee but to all the committees that have been set up thus far.

Regards...Raff.

Objective:

To adhere to the List of Objectives as outlined in the Trinidad and Tobago off-road club constitution and promote these objectives to the extent of membership participation.

Preamble:

As the New Year approaches, it is incumbent the Events Manager presents to the members of TTORC, a calendar of events for the term January 01st.2007 to December 31st.2007.

Firstly, the Events Manager would like to thank you for placing the confidence on him to lead a team of esteem people into a challenging term of events and shall surely encourage the inputs of all its members in developing and supporting the vision for this term.

Initiatives:

The New Year vision is not very different from the previous years events, in-fact, although it might be structured differently it is consistent with the previous years and more importantly it is structured around the constitution of the club.

The Methodology for the structure is in the following form and is consistent with Clause 16 of the clubs Constitution which allows for Subcommittees to be considered for specific terms of reference.

These are:

a. Off-Road Events –Grade 2 and above. Clause 2a and 2d of the Constitution.
b. Grade 1 and Family events. Clause 2g of the Constitution
c. Exploration Trails and Charity Events. Clause 2b of the Constitution
d. Environmental Programs. Clause 2i of the Constitution
e. Special Advisory committee Bye-Laws 2, Part B- Specific Duties, Events Manager Clause 5.

To assist in the management of the stated events and the planning activities, I have sort the permission of various members of the TTORC family to head these Sub committees and select voluntary support from club members.

The following summarizes these events and identifies the Sub-committee heads.

a. Off Road Event - Grade 2 and Above Committee Head - Shane Blackwood

A schedule of trails will be developed with new initiatives and working with other groups in organizing combined efforts to benefit members of TTORC.

b. Grade 1 and Family Events Committee Head – Roll Babooram

This committee will seek out grade-1 trails and encourage participation of new members and potential members. In addition, in order to in-cooperate family members, spouse and children, events will be planned with the involvement of family members and associates.

It is the intension of this group to bring families closer to the TTORC Family.

c. Exploration Trails and Charity Event Committee Head – Gauph Nandoo

Mapping out and grading new trails will be one of the challenges of this committee. The other challenge is to identify the contribution that can be made by TTORC to any Needy Organization such as, Homes, Churches, Schools ect. and making recommendation for these contributions.

d. Environmental Programs. Committee Head – Sheldon Mohammed.

This committee will work closely with other agencies and identify avenues by which TTORC can support any cause that can be beneficial to the development of Health, Safety and the Environment and also bring recognition to the club by its efforts.

e. Advisory Committee Committee Head – Paul Tiah

This committee shall in addition to its advisory capabilities, review, rationalize and document the contentious point system after approval by the membership. In addition, this committee shall recommend to the events manager competition plans for the year 2007.

Conclusion;

The Above mentioned Sub – committee Heads will therefore work closely with other executive members to ensure compliant with policy guidelines as outlined in the TTORC constitution and other interest group.

For example, Safety being an important aspect in every sphere of our programs, the exploration team will need the input of our safety and training officer as well as our Scrutineer to ensure that dangers and hazards are minimized.. Environmental programs team will work closely with the Sponsorship Officer for the generation of funds for projects etc.

If at the end of the 2007 term we are able to mobilize group efforts and encourage participation, team building, and family togetherness, we would achieve however small, part of our objective.

Thank you ..... TTORC – Event Manager 2007. ..............Raffick Mohammed.
