QMA has moved to an online membership process. This means almost no paper has to be used which saves on costs (and space if you're the secretary!). For the online forms, your typed name counts as your signature; you will physically sign one form with the club secretary when you renew with WQMA.
Memberships expire at the end of the calendar year; there is a $15 penalty for late renewals. Family Memberships cost $260 and single (Alternate/Handler) memberships cost $75. The QMA portion will be paid online when you renew (Family memberships pay $150 to QMA and $110 to WQMA; Alternates pay the entire amount to QMA).
Before beginning the membership renewal, make sure you have any necessary documents ready for uploading. If you have new novices, you will need to have a scan (PDF) or photo (JPG) of your child's birth certificate to submit to QMA.
To start the membership renewal process, go to the national website at www.quartermidgets.org and select the Join QMA button at the top of the page.

Your membership is complete and valid once the confirmation form is signed and returned to your club secretary. A QMA Membership ID card will arrive for your family several weeks after your membership is complete.
Forms for Your First Race of the Season : At (or before) the first race you participate in each season, you and your child will have to fill out an annual waiver for racing at WQMA (this waiver is for our land owners, the Evergreen State Fairgrounds). Please click here for the forms. You can also turn in these forms with your membership application to save time the day of the first race!
If you have any questions or concerns about membership, please contact our current club secretary: Trina Humphries.
WQMA is an all volunteer based organization. We are always looking for volunteers to help out during the race day. Many positions require you not volunteering when your driver is racing. This is a bonus to volunteer and still watch your driver.
Tower - manually record race cars per lap. (Very easy and the tower is willing to train).
Cafe - take orders or cook and prepare food. Accept cash or credit cards.
Scales - assure all drivers and cars are within the required weight of their class. Mark tires.
Pit Boss - Double check drivers for all safety measures to include helmet, seatbelts, brakes, stirring wheel. Ensure timing devices are in place. Work with transceiver operator to make sure drivers have their transceiver working.
There are many other opportunities to help keep the race day moving. Volunteer sheets are posted at the back of staging on the board.
