"11.1.2 Access - Appeals may be submitted to arbitration in accordance with
the following rules for any matter except where specifically denied by
another rule. Appeals arising from a disqualification for a safety infraction
will only be accepted to determine whether exceptional circumstances
warrant reconsideration of the match disqualification.

However, the commission of the infraction as described by the Range
Official is not subject to challenge or appeal.
Challenges to the construction
or layout of the course, safety, or shooting conditions may not
be submitted after the competitor attempts the course of fire. Should a
course of fire be changed after the competitor completes the stage, he
is entitled to the process under appeals providing that no DQ has
occurred."

Here is the rule. How does that fit your scenario?

Later,

Chuck

no malfunction. he missed an activater, activated it fifteen feet farther downrange, turned and shot the drop turner. over twenty shooters saw it. yes she was the rm. she wasted twenty minutes trying to convince the ro that he had not seen, what he saw. Then she overruled him.

So, you have 3 impact points and know where the competitor was standing?? Should be pretty cut and dry to me... Then again, I'm not and RO but I do value my own safety..... Personally, I think the RM was wrong to overrule the RO if facts presented are true....

The RM was wrong. Period.

I read your second comment that the shooter was the RM?

I would think that when the RM is shooting as a competitor they have no authority due to the conflict of interest.

I have never RM'd for a RM or MD that overturned a safety based DQ. Nor do I think I would RO for them more than once!

Shot broke the 180...3 times. Bunch of witnesses. RO called it. Right? My opinion is the shooter has no honor. That being said...I believe either the MD is completely unqualified or mentally challenged. When they overturned it did they even investigate ?

I was on the squad behind the squad in which the shooter in question was shooting. There were, literally, 20 people standing around watching. Shooter broke the 180 with 3 shots. The RO immediately called a stop and DQ'd the shooter. The shooter then proceeded to protest. The RM was called, a 20+ (most likely more) minute debate was had, and the DQ was overturned.

There was no doubt he broke the 180. Not sure how I would feel if I were the RO and had that call overturned.

I'm going to point this out because it's important that people know the difference. Range Masters are in charge of the match after first shot and until last shot. Match Directors put the thing together, turn it over to the RM to run, and take it back as the match is finalized.

Match Directors, MD's' have NO responsibility here what so ever, until it's time to put the arbitration committee together.

Please discuss the right officials' responsibility when talking about a match such as this.

aztec. It was the range master, who made the call. the md, was not present. I aproached the md about it later, and was blown off.

Well, I can't speak to the approach, but he didn't have much more to do about it unless someone is going to file an arbitration. Rm is the final authority at that point. Sorry to hear its a controversy.

Aztec,

speaking to the MD is still a good idea -- while the MD has no authority in the current situation, he does have the ability to hire a different RM in the future....

RM...MD. Semantics. Bottom line is its unsafe...and who ever was in charge was not able, or refused to see it. It could have been Bobo the widget salesman..does not change the fact that a very dangerous act was condoned...and possibly encouraged. I would possibly contact NROI.....
