The RCP process for changing rules in the NAR Sporting Code a.k.a. “The Pink Book” is defined in the sporting code under section “F” of the appendix. The process can be reviewed online at http://www.nar.org/pinkbook/ the cycle for proposed changes now runs on a one year cycle. A dedicated online RCP Forum for proposals to be reviewed commented on and finally voted on is now being used to and is available for all NAR members here: http://www.nar.org/contest-flying/rules- revision-process/rcp- cycle-2015- 2016/
You must sign up on the forum page to post comments and to vote on the proposals. If you have forgotten your username and or password, go to “My Membership” at www.nar.org
Twelve proposals were received prior to the August 31, 2015 deadline. Each of those proposals is posted in the online forum for you to review. The comment period has now closed and the ballot is now available.
Take the time to read the proposals carefully. I also recommend that you discuss the proposals with fellow contest flyers for the pros and cons of the proposals. Some clubs even have discussion at business meetings to allow for opinions to be shared amongst members.
The ballot is now available in the same location as the comment forum. You have UNTIL midnight EDT June 1 st , 2016 to place your ballot. When the proposals are voted on, they will require a 66% vote for the proposal to be passed and become a part of the pink book effective for the new contest year July1, 2016, but they will have no bearing on NARAM-58.
