Nothing to stop you staging a mock protest based on a real incident...

At our club we run a highly competitive sunday series and a more relaxed thursday eve series.  I take part in both and we haven't EVER had a protest comitee.  To be hounest nobody knows what to do.  Is there a guide for club race officers on how to deal with protests.  We'd like a go at it, as i believe it gives you a better understanding of the rules, but it just dont see it happening.

Anybody know the best route into 'friendly' protest procedings?

In Merlin Rocket class training events, the organisers held mock protests for incidents in practice races. It definitely helped me know what to expect the first time I did one for real.

Its very simple really,commitee (made of usually 3 people) hear both cases, find facts from that, then call you back in hear some more then make a decision to who was in wrong and what action to take. I've been in quite a feqw and it's not as daunting as you expect
