Brief Summary of the Proposed Change: Change the requirement to have at least two competitors in a division or they get combined into another division.
State the Logic of the Change: When there is a combining of divisions, the single competitor get all the points awarded in their division regardless of how they place. The detriment is with the division in which they are combined. They often get less points.
Effect if any on Current Competition and NAR Records: This will effect NARAM competition only, points will be distributed differently in divisions that would have been combined.
Exact Wording for the Rule Revision as it should Appear: Section #9.6 – Delete the first sentence and the second paragraph. Delete the words “attempt to” in the second sentence. That leaves the following, “An entry must make an official flight before points can be awarded in the event.”
