RULES PROCESS

The SSA Rules Committee executes a process to evaluate and modify the SSA Contest Rules each year.

This committee executes a process each year to poll the pilots on the US Pilot Ranking List, works together to evaluate the existing rules, then proposes a final set of revised rules for the comming racing season.
