Why does the club have a Volunteer Points System?
The SFTC Volunteer Points System was designed to recognize and encourage volunteerism within the club.

What Volunteer Service Qualifies?
To be considered in the SFTC volunteer recognition program, volunteer service must be performed at:

* SFTC-owned events includes races, social events, and board meetings. In addition, annual points are awarded to named SFTC posts such as board members, course measurer, etc. The full list of named SFTC posts can be found on the SFTC Board page. See the SFTC calendar and use the "SFTC owned/hired" or King/Queen filters to see which events qualify for SFTC Volunteer Points.

Who is Eligible?
Only SFTC members can receive volunteer points. A volunteer must be a SFTC member on the day of the event in order to qualify for volunteer points. All members are automatically included in the volunteer points program.

How is Volunteer Service Reported?
Race directors or liaisons at qualifying events should report volunteer service to the SFTC Volunteer Coordinator after the event is over.

Annual Awards:
Each December SFTC will recognize the top volunteers based upon volunteer points for that year. All points including redeemed points will be included.

Gift certificates will be provided to the top 3 volunteers for the year:
$150 - first place - "SFTC Volunteer of the Year"
$100 - second place
$50 - third place

After the top 3 awards are presented, 3 drawings will be held from the remaining volunteer pool for $50 gift certificates. The top 3 volunteers are not eligible for this drawing. You must be present at the awards banquet to win this drawing. Weighted drawings will be based on volunteer points. That is, a person with 10 volunteer points has 10 times the chance of being drawn as a person with only 1 volunteer point.
