TBYC’ Dutyman’ web–based duty roster management system has been live for 3 weeks and some duty swopping and updating of personal contact details has already taken place using the system. Click on ’ DutyMan Race Roster’ at the left hand side of this web-page to view the roster.
All those members (up to 260) with one or more duties allocated should have received from DutyMan a welcome email ( with a password) and a second email listing out their allocated duties.
However, you will not have received an email from DutyMan if the club does not have an up to date email address for you.
If you know that you have duties allocated and have not received an email from Dutyman please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org letting us know. Your name and correct email address will then be added to the DutyMan database.
If you have had your email from DutyMan giving you your password please enter the site and confirm that you have noted and recorded your duties by clicking on the ‘Confirm you duties’ heading . This will greatly assist the Duty Officer for each race.
DutyMan will send out an email reminder for each duty 3 weeks and 1 week before each duty date. If you do not wish to receive these reminders then you can enter the site with your password, ‘confirm’ and record your duties, and cancel the reminders. However, please be certain that you have transferred the duty dates to your diary and that you are sure that you do not need reminding.
Please remember that whether or not you confirm your duties in DutyMan, you are expected to do your allocated duties. If you are unable to do your duty then it is your responsibility to arrange a suitable replacement. The simple rule is “no race officers or support boat crews – no sailing”
Please use DutyMan to arrange or confirm swops or to get a volunteer – the Duty Roster is then automatically updated and you do NOT have to inform the Duty Officer. DutyMan may help you arrange a swop but swopping cannot be guaranteed.
Please let us have any feedback on how this new system is working. You can email email@example.com with any queries or comments on DutyMan. Or you can phone Graham Dare on 07946 413923.
