    Re: [RC] What Constitutes a Start? - Truman Prevatt

    Of course it is rule 12 Bob. ?What seems at issue is the definition of the word "start." ?Some seem to have problems because it's not defined in the rules. What do I think of that argument - pretty vacuous. There is also a federal judge in Arkansas that has the same opinion concerning that type of argument.

    says Truman: Using your logic and drawing from this
    particular incident
    where the
    party was seen about five miles into the ride then every RM
    in the
    country could just set up a point 5 miles down the trail and
    let all
    those that for whatever reason didn't want to go on pull
    from the ride
    without any record. If 5 is okay, then why is 10 or 15 or
    20? Are you
    telling me you think this is in the letter and/or sprit of
    the AERC rules?

    No, I think it is a pretty standard procedure to count
    anybody that begins
    the physical course as a 'starter'. But in order to file a
    protest or
    grievance, you need something more concrete than 'but this
    isn't the way
    it's supposed to be done. '

    I'm probably getting myself into deep trouble here ... and I
    am NOT
    promoting the deletion of 'sort of starters' from the
    official start list.
    But I don't see any rules being broken. Just protocol, and
    maybe a 'by
    default' policy. I don't see that there is anything concrete
    to be
