Officials Positions and Officials Travel Subsidies

Officials Travel Subsidies

We appreciate that many of you drive a long way to get to the different venues to help us out with our Championships therefore we will compensate officials at the following rate.

35c per KM and up to $150 for within the same Island and $300 when crossing Islands. These subsidies will be calculated and paid into your bank accounts 2-3 weeks post event. Please be aware that the Event Manager will request your bank account number so the subsidy can be made into the correct account.
