From: Jennifer Ash NAR # 61415 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Type of Proposal: Regular
Brief Summary of the Proposed Change: This change will prevent the same NRC event to be held 2 years in a row. This will not prevent the NARAM CD from picking the same event for his/her additional events for NARAM (i.e. Scale, or R&D), but the event cannot be an NRC selection.
State the Logic of the Change: There are 8 different events in the NRC list (13.1.4). When you include the engine class, you have 22 different combinations to choose 6 events for the NRC. Why repeat an event from one year to the next? A model can be used for different events, so that should not be the deciding factor. Example: C Egg Altitude can be held one year, B Egg Altitude can be held the next year, but C Egg altitude could not (Engine class can change).
Effect if any on Current Competition and NAR Records: None
Exact Wording for the Rule Revision as it should Appear:
Section # 13.1.2 Event Selection NRC events will be selected as follows:
- The Contest Board shall select four (4) NRC events.
- The NARAM Contest Director shall select two (2) NRC event
- The same NRC event and motor class cannot be flown in consecutive years
3 Comments on RCP# 2018-09
The perceived need to keep changing the events every year is as arbitrary as someone's decision to hold the same events as last year.Â
This RCP asks, "Why repeat an event from one year to the next? "Â
Maybe we're flying C Eggloft Altitude again because we like the event?Â What's wrong with that?Â
This rules attempts to fix something that isn't broken.Â Holding the same event over again for the first time ever in the history of the NRC, and we already have an RCP against it.Â Give me a break!
