From: Vern Richardson NAR# 91272 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Type of Proposal: Regular
Brief Summary of the Proposed Change: If a division only has one contestant, then they would not compete in another division, but would get a first place if and only they have a qualified flight.
State the Logic of the Change: Since the mixing only applies at NARAM now, then there isn’t a real need to mix divisions. Mixing penalizes the group that has multiple contestants by bumping down those who get beat by the individual contestant.
Effect if any on Current Competition and NAR Records: None on records. But, would be beneficial to the group that has multiple contestants.
Exact Wording for the Rule Revision as it should Appear:
9.6 NARAM Minimum Entries An entry must make an official attempt before points may be awarded in an event.
Add rule 8.3.4 Competition Divisions shall not be combined.
