Possible Rule Change for next year
I saw this on the Texas forum and I though it might be good to get feed back from Nor Cal riders.
During the Town Hall meeting in Park City, Utah and in the preliminary email feed back session the USCF board of trustees heard many USCF members wishing for changes to be made to some of our rules. One of the changes that came out of the feedback was to restructure prize opportunities allowed in races for prizes of commercial value. To address this issue the trustees will debate at least 5 different possibilities during our annual meeting in October. REMEMBER, these are PROPOSED rule changes. No more than one of these rule changes could be passed IF ANY of them are passed. This is your chance to provide feedback to the process. You can provide feedback publicly through this forum or privately via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Before you reply, please take time to think of all the far reaching implications each change might make (Encouraging people to Cat. up out of Cat. 5? More racing possibilities due to lower promoterâ€™s cost? Changing attitudes of racers at races for the better? Lower entry fees?)
