Vehicle Usage at FGA Events
Due to an increase in the use of vehicles by competitors at events, particularly at the Nationals, FGA at State level have formed a policy on vehicle use. This covers all forms of motorised transport by competitors regardless of the reason and includes as example, cars, quad-bikes, golf carts, mobility scooters etc.
Competitors will not be unreasonably denied the use of these vehicles where a genuine need exists, but will need to apply annually to FGA to do so, and comply with rules for competitors relating to vehicle use when using vehicles on any FGA ground.
The nature of the discussion that has lead to this was based on issues such as competitive advantage for competitors who were not walking between stations and were less fatigued by activity as a result, safety for competitors using vehicles, and for those around them, and insurance/public liability issues arising from incidents with vehicles.
If you have any questions regarding the policy please see one of the club executive (Karl Hales, Dave Jones, Mick Crane or Reg Biggs) and we will attempt to answer them, or seek the answers for you. We can also assist with the application.
Note: This policy applies to competitors vehicles only and does not apply to vehicles being used by club officials and staff for the purposes of running, preparing or packing up from events, or general work required for the running of the club (working bees etc.)
