New Report Forms for 2012
The C1 and C2 Stewards will now have separate report forms. Starting on December 1, 2011 reports submitted on any outdated version of
the report and not on the correct 2012 C1 or C2 Steward?s Report form will not be accepted. The new reports will be available
soon online and orders for the triplicate, printed version may be placed now. To place an order for the new versions of the 2012
Steward/TD Packet and the 2012 Competition Packet, please use the attached, new 2012 Packet Order Forms because there have been
several changes made to the forms available and the ordering process. Please note that orders placed for the paper versions of
