How to Correctly Lay Tracks (July 2023)

We are hosting a seminar July 29-30, 2023.


This seminar is the start of a new DVG America initiative to increase training for track layers. Every competitor deserves to have a 100 point track laid for them in a trial and we need to make sure that track layers have the skills to do just that. Led by Joanne Fleming, our vision is to have a program similar to the Helper Program, with track layer books and track layer certification (club, regional, and national level). In this very hands-on (boots on the ground) seminar, we will cover the skills, planning, and tools needed to go out there and lay a 100 point track.
Please contact Rukmalie Jayakody (jayakody@email.com) with any questions.
