Here goes! Over 10 things went wrong for this to happen, I'll try to keep it simple. 14 shot the pre-match. On a particular stage competitor 13 realized you could see part of a bobber before hitting the activating popper, so he shot it stationary. I was his RO, I did not order a re-shoot, I think it was a smart strategy on the competitor's part. The next day I am about to shoot the stage when I realize there's now a vision barrier blocking me from doing the same. I make my protest know to the RO and scorekeeper, who say they'll talk to the MD as the RM is only arriving latter that day (it's Friday AM). I shoot the stage, under the belief competitor 13 will have to re-shoot. Nobody is disputing that a modification was made. That afternoon, competitor 13 and RM arrive (carpooling to match) and I let them both know there will need to be a reshoot. Competitor 13 says, "not my problem, I'm done the match, my gun is at home". The RM goes to talk to the MD, no action is taken. Saturday, no action taken. I bring my concern to the RM again, he asks "why are you complaining? you smoked his time on that stage" I replied, "I'm not aware of the results, my competition should have to shoot the same stage I shot, maybe I'd beet him by more?" Sunday morning I filed an arbitration on this stage and another (nearly identical scenario, fault lines moved making stage more difficult before I and the other 35 competitors shot) I referenced rule 126.96.36.199, as the actions of 1 competitor, caused the modification, I asked that a re-shoots be ordered for competitor 13. The arbitration committee, gave me back my money but they tossed both stages, stating it was impossible for everybody to re-shoot the stages, referring to rule 2.3.4 Obviously, I didn't win the match and finished a very close 2nd. Questions: 1. Can a committee do anything else but uphold or deny my arbitration? (I asked for competitor 13 to be ordered to re-shoot, to me it was clear that his actions led to the modifications. I got my money, but they didn't uphold my arbitration) 2. Is "I don't have my gun" not refusing to re-shoot? (188.8.131.52 a competitor who refuses to re-shoot gets zero....) 3. Should an RM ever be looking at stage results when disputes over modification and unfair advantage arise?
