How to Join

Thank you for your interest in joining Performance Handicap Racing Fleet - Lake Ontario (PHRF-LO).

We are always willing to accept new clubs to our organization and look forward to having you join in the future.

We are a non-profit group with sister organizations throughout North America. All our members are volunteers who work diligently to ensure fairness throughout the system. Elected members to the position of President, Vice President, Secretary Treasurer, etc., as well as, the Chief Handicapper and the 6 District Chiefs direct us.

Our only source of income is from annual certificate fees and we rely on our members to support our ongoing success by adhering to the Bylaws as outlined below.

7.3.4  The MEMBER and their HANDICAPPER(s) will use their access to PHRF-LO’s proprietary information (a) for the specific purpose of issuing valid certificates for all participants in racing events.  Use of PHRF-LO’s proprietary data to provide a handicap rating without compensation to the ORGANIZATION is contrary to the mutual benefit of the ORGANIZATION.     

Once we receive your New Member Application, your club will be accepted as a “Provisional Member” upon approval by our President and endorsement by the District with which you are assigned.

An initial membership deposit fee of $404 (Canadian) is required. This amount is equivalent to 10 certificates and shall be reconciled against the actual number of certificates issued at the end of the year, and the balance applied to the following year’s deposit. Annual deposits are based on the previous years, actual, number of certificates issued. We offer a $5/certificate credit for each certificate issued to your club on submission of your race results for analysis.

Certificates must be renewed annually to be valid.

Membership provides up to 3 club-designated handicappers with, full web access, which includes copies of the PHRF LO Handicappers Manual, appropriate forms and material. This ensures that your club is provided with the most up-to-date information as it comes available.
