Congratulations to SMMC members Aaron Ferguson and Kenny Wilson who passed their Stage Commander's assessment earlier this month at the Kingdom Stages rally at Crail.
Already highly experienced Senior Stage Marshals, they had completed the necessary upgrade requirements involving not only marshalling but undertaking duties as a supervised Stage Commander, Deputy Stage Commander and Stage Safety Officer along with completing the Stage Commander training module.
The final part of the upgrade involved being assessed ‘in role’ by an Examining Stage Commander. This was arranged for the Kingdom Stages organised by Glenrothes Motor Sports Club, when Kevin Dawson travelled up from England to complete the assessment. Aaron took control of the early batch of stages before handing over the reins to Kenny. The assessment really was hands on, with late crew changes meaning that Kevin and his wife ended up acting as the start radio.
Well done to both Aaron and Kenny and here’s hoping that more members follow in their footsteps.
