Proposal 84: Flatland Director + Chief Judge new definitions [ Revision 2 ]Committee: Flat & Street
Submitted on 2017-01-15
Status: Passed on January 22, 2017
Often in smaller competition the Flatland Director and Chief Judge are the same person. I thought it would be important to indicate this. Here are some updated definitions with a goal of making them shorter and clearer to what their purpose are.
Note: 10C.3.3 Judging Panel May Not Change is already a section, so this text can be removed from these sections.
10C.1 Flatland Director
Flatland Director is the head organizer and administrator of Flatland. With the convention host, they are responsible for the event logistics, the equipment and the system used to run the event. They must select the Chief Judge. They are in charge of keeping the event on schedule and answering questions about the event. The Flatland Director is the highest authority on everything to do with the Flatland competition, except for decisions on rules and results.
10C.2 Chief Judge
The Chief Judge is the head Flatland official. They are responsible for selecting the judges, overseeing the competition, handling protests, ensuring the event rules are followed, and answering questions about the rules and judging. The Chief Judge is also responsible for the accuracy of all judging point tabulations and calculations.
An interruption of judging can result from material damage, injury of a competitor or interference with a competitors by a person or object. The Chief Judge determines if the rider is at fault. If they are not, the Chief Judge chooses when to insert the rider back into the competition, along with the rider's remaining time. The Chief Judge may be the same person as the Flatland director.
10C.1. Flatland Director
The Flatland Director is the head organizer and administrator of the flatland competi-tion. With the Convention Host, the Flatland Director determines the system used to run the event. The Flatland Director is responsible for the logistics and equipment for all flatland events. With the Chief Judge, the Flatland Director is in charge of keeping events running on schedule, and answers all questions not pertaining to rules and judg-ing. The Flatland Director is the highest authority on everything to do with the flatland competition, except for decisions on rules and results.
10C.2 Chief Judge
The Chief Judge is the head flatland official, whose primary job is to make sure therules are followed. The Chief Judge oversees the competition, deals with protests, and answers all rules and judging questions. The Chief Judge is responsible for seeing thatall judges are trained and ready. The Chief Judge is also responsible for the accuracy of all judging point tabulations and calculations. The Chief Judge will remember to consider language barriers, and that riders may be engaged in convention work to slow them down. A rider may not perform before a different set of judges than those that judged the rest of their age group. An interruption of judging can result from material damage, injury or sudden illness ofa competitor, or interference with a competitor by a person or object. If this happens, the Chief Judge determines the amount of time left and whether any damage may be the fault of the competitor. Re-admittance into competition must happen within the regulatory competition time. If a routine is continued and the competitor was not at fault for the interruption, all devaluations coming forth from the interruption will be withdrawn.
All info up there.

Clarify that the Chief Judge is in charge of the accuracy of the tabulations; they are not required to do the tabulations themselves. Also, better wording of the interruption rules.
