NEHA: 2016 Season Rules Submission

----------------------------------------------

HERE are the official rules submissions for the 2016 season.

----------------------------------------------

It is that time of year again to think about changes that you would like to see in the NEHA series to improve our events.

Deadline: Proposal are accepted up to January 25, 2016
By February 1, we will post the Adobe PDF file at the link above with all the proposals to be heard at the NEHA Rules Meeting.

Hosting club: Make sure you make copies of the proposal document for the meeting

Submission Process
How to submit a proposal: E-mail me at SCCVermont@aol.com with the e-mail subject of "2016 NEHA Rules Proposal". I will respond to all submissions confirming that I received your e-mail; if you do not receive confirmation, send me a Private Message on the forums.

It is okay to use a Word document for your submission.

This is how the proposal will be read at the meeting:

Rule type (General Regulations, Classification, Technical Regulations)
Your name(s)
Rule section letter or number
Your proposal exactly how you would like to see it written in the rules (may be a deletion)
Optional but helpful, please include a brief description of your thoughts behind your proposal.

Example:
General Regulations
Frankie Slowpokeski
5. General / B. Fuel System / Section 3
Change "metal can" to "can made of old milk cartons"
My thinking on this matter is that blah blah blah.

I do not plan to bring copies of the rule proposals to the meeting. I will leave that to the hosting club and you (as an individual) to make that happen.... mainly because I know I will forget.

It is officially time to submit your proposals!

Make sure you read all the instructions; this makes it easier for me to put together the final document.

Thank you

No submissions yet? Looks like we'll be able to get partying a little earlier.

They will all roll in at the last minute.

We do need to change the helmet rule from

C. Helmet
1. a. Snell SA2005 or newer, b. FIA 8860-20XX with manufacture date less
than 10 years, or c. BS 6658-85 type A/FR with manufacture date less than
10 years.

to

C. Helmet
1. a. Snell SA2010 or newer, b. FIA 8860-20XX with manufacture date less
than 10 years, or c. BS 6658-85 type A/FR with manufacture date less than
10 years.

A couple other organizations (NASA, SCCA) have extended their helmet change an extra year because SA2015 helmets were released late (and I believe some are still not out yet). Would be nice to have the same extension for NEHA.

Just checked, many SA2015 helmets are available to order but some won't ship until late spring at the earliest.

Its been the norm to change the oldest accepted Snell date the year after the next iteration is released, and that is because it has been the norm for very few helmet to be available complying with the newest date. While some brands may be late making the 2015 conforming helmets available, we dont start using our helmets until mid-May. I suppose if someone can document that their SA2015 helmet has been on order but is not yet available at spring Ascutney, we should allow their SA2000 for that event, but I dont think we should delay implementing the rule change to SA2010 or newer because of it...Says the guy who got his new carbon fiber SA2015 in late December.

Ooops. I should have said: "...should allow their SA2005 for that event..."

Just one example I know, but just throwing it out there.

Note the change would be from 2005 to 2010. My SA2005 helmet (bought on clearance in 2010) is only 6 years old...

Also, I wasn't posting for sake of argument, just sharing the policy multiple other organizations are using as an exception this year. If the rule changes, guess I'll have to buy a helmet sooner than I'd like.
