New Rulebook, MAR & Equipment Appendices
Good Afternoon. I’m excited to announce the release of our 2022 Rule Book, Match Administration Guide, and Equipment appendices. Hundreds of hours of work have preceded these documents with input from our State Coordinators, Area Coordinators, Regional Area Coordinator Leads, International Points of Contact, our Headquarters staff, and myself.
We have also based some of the changes on the information we gleaned from surveys of the membership.
I think this rule book is the best that has been produced for the sport to date. I understand that not everyone will like or appreciate the changes that have been made. Others will wish that we had made more changes. As stated in the IDPA’s Fundamental Principles, ‘IDPA can never be all things to all people’.
My core philosophy is to put the good of the sport ahead of the good of an individual member or myself. I feel we have accomplished this with a vision for the future as well.
My heartfelt thanks to all who have worked so hard on this project.
We will expect all matches to be run under the new rulebook effective June 1, 2022. We are making changes to the website to accommodate the new rules and guidelines and will be sharing more about that information soon.
