We need your help at the start/finish, entries, terrain or as marshals. We will try to accommodate requests for specific placements as far as possible, but decisions might be trumped by the available positions in each area.

Those members who are interested in keeping their numbers from 2019, are requested to mail Hannes Nel at 

There is no guarantee that we will get the same license numbers for 2020 as requested, especially for members who joined late in the year, as numbers issued by AGN later in the year might be additional numbers and do not fall within the numbers allocated for Magnolia.  This will specifically pertain to numbers consisting of 5 digits.
