On September 1, 2016, a draft of the new rule book for NAR competition will be available for members to download. Click this link to go to a page containing both PDF and HTML versions of the draft rule book.
The page containing these two downloads also presents a “Forum” through which NAR members will be able to input suggested changes to the draft rules. The Forum presents the rules in the order in which each section is presented in the draft rule book. So for example, if you wish to suggest a change to the rules regarding “Altitude Data,” you would post your suggestion to Section 14: Altitude Data on the Forum webpage.
The Forum is moderated. Because input to the Forum can be read by any NAR member, input that contains unacceptable speech may not be posted (viewable). Input must be suitable for our youngest members to read. Please focus your input on how to improve and/or clarify the draft rules- the ECS wants your input.
The membership will have until November 30, 2016 (90 days) to provide input via the Forum. On December 1, 2016, the Forum will no longer accept input and the ECS will begin the task of integrating member input into the draft rule book. A timeline proposed by the ECS has a final draft rule book going out to the Board for review prior to NARCON- 2017, with a final up/down vote at NARCON. If accepted, the new rule book will become effective for the 2017-2018 contest year and will determine the results of NARAM 60.
