Who do I ask about rules questions?
The very first step is to utilize the rulebook. You can download it here
You can browse through it or use Ctrl+F and use the FIND function.
Type in a few keywords and you will see every instance of the term in the Rulebook.
Questions about sanctioned matches?
Use the Match Administration Rules. A download for the MAR is located on the right side of the FAQ page along with several other downloadable rules files.
Nearly all questions can be answered using this process.
If you can’t find the answer, the next step would be to contact your local Match Director or Safety Officer Instructor.
The last step in the process would be to contact your Area Coordinator (AC) or International Point of Contact (IPOC) with your question and the rule number that you think may address it. You can easily locate the contact information for your SC, AC or IPOC from the Coordinator Map.
PLEASE NOTE: Rules questions can not be answered by posts on social media or by calling IDPA Headquarters.
