Hi Habib, did you request to any Marshal or Explorer member to do your tool check? After the tool check only you will get your first star. If the tool check is over
mention Marshal/Explorer member's name and send a request to the concerned Marshal/Explorer and admin.

Hi Habib,

Be on the look out in the NEWBIE drive threads for an upcoming drive.

Check to see who are the registered marshals/explorers in the trip and send them a PM to REQUEST to meet them before or after the scheduled drive to have your tools inspected.

This however does NOT grant you the chance to join that drive as you need to be registered in that particular drive as per our club rules.

If your tools are in check and complete then you get your 1st star after the recommendation of the marshal/explorer, and your ready to join the nebie drives this coming winter season.

Hope this helps

Hello members,

Please make sure you go thru the tools list as required to get your upgrade. It would be a pain to drive all the way out just to get inspected and not get the upgrade.

Read and comply guys. Thanks
