IJSBA is pleased to announce the formation of the Speed Control Committee. The goal of this committee is to explore the need for implementing top speed control measures in Closed Course competitions. Members will assist IJSBA in evaluating whether speed controls are necessary and, if the need is found, then the amount of control and the methods for controlling the speeds. IJSBA is noting that there has been an increase in the baseline speeds as well as the top speeds in all Closed Course classes.
Persons interested in joining this committee should be very familiar with all aspects of current PWC technology. If you are interested in contributing to the research of speed controls please be willing to commit your time and respectfully discuss ideas that may be contrary to your own. The goal will be to have a cohesive plan to submit to the second Congress of the Rules which will take place, this October, at the 36th Annual IJSBA World Finals.
Committee meetings will take place both in person and in an online discussion environment. Several physical meetings will take place beginning with a short introductory meeting on Saturday, February 11th in Lake Havasu City, Arizona. Committee members are not expected to participate in all meetings but are expected to continue to participate in the process all the way through the conclusion of the project.
If you are interested in being part of the committee, please send a short resume and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please indicate whether you will be present in Lake Havasu City on February 11th.
