    5. There will be a limited number of loaner helmets available on a first-come, first-serve basis, at a rental price of $2.00 each. Loaner helmets will be issued to a single person for the duration of the event, and are not to shared with other persons during the event. Priority for use of loaner helmets will go first to competitors, and afterwards to riders. Users of a loaner helmet will be issued a disposable balaclava, which is required to be worn while using the loaner helmet.
    6. If there is a change to your registration, make it in advance to avoid lines on site. If you believe that you may be unable to attend the event for any reason, it is strongly encouraged that you cancel your registration to free up space for others, or allow persons on the waitlist to gain entry to the event.
    7. To help minimize contact at the event, please sign up before the event for the SCCA Annual Waiver at SCCA
    8. For non-members, and members who have not completed an Annual Waiver form, you will need to sign the normal waiver form. It is preferred if competitors who need to sign the normal waiver form are able to bring their own pen to sign the form, but if not, a pen will be provided for the competitor to keep after signing.

    3. GENERAL GUIDELINES AND INFORMATION


    1. If you are fully vaccinated against COVID-19, masks are no longer required indoors or outdoors.
    2. If you are not vaccinated, you may still attend and participate in GRR events. However, in line with the latest CDC guidelines, it is recommended that you continue to wear a mask indoors and when near others.
    3. All individuals remain free to wear a mask in any setting at any GRR event, should they choose to.
