Appendix A – Resolutions for Changes to Class Championship Rules
7 – Changes to Class Championship Rules
7.1 – Change CCR 8.6.1(ii) to accommodate the increased number of NCAs potentially sending members to World and Continental Championships – Proposal from Events SC :
Change CCR 8.6.1(ii) from :
Current Wording
(ii) For World Championships, two places to each Member NCA, or for Continental Championships, two places to each Continental Member NCA and one place to each other Member NCA which has declared interest as in 8.2.
Proposed Wording: (changes in red)
(ii) For World Championships, two places to each Member NCA (one if the number of certificated owners at the previous AGM is 50 or below), or for Continental Championships, two places to each Continental Member NCA (one if the number of certificated owners at the previous AGM is 50 or below) and one place to each other Member NCA which has declared interest as in 8.2.
Discussion :
With an increased number of NCA within IOMICA (which we welcome ! ) the allocation of places gives less importance to previous championship results and participation. For example, with currently 27 NCAs, at a world championship 54 places are distributed at stage 1 + 4 to host country + 5 for guests + 1 for previous World champion, so 64 places from 76 available.
So only top 12 competitors NCAs of previous event will get additional places at first stage.
Proposed change will allow more countries to get places based on previous results and ensure that participating countries are rewarded for that.
