Results for the 2019-2020 Rules Change Proposal Cycle
Posted July 14, 2020.
The 2019-2020 RCP process concluded as of June 15, 2020. Appendix “D” in the sporting code states that proposals must receive a 51% yes vote in order for the proposal to become a part of the sporting code. The proposals that did pass become a part of the sporting code that will be revised and effective as of July 31st 2021, for the new contest year, but have no bearing on NARAM-62. A total of 122 ballots were received which is up from last year when we only had 88 ballots. Some voters abstained from voting on all of the proposals. If you submitted a proposal and or voted thank you for taking the time.
