Text Box: Appeals Process  on the Line

As stated in the RO II handbook, “In the event a call is challenged at the line, the Range Officer should know the chain of command for directing the shooter to the next higher authority to settle the dispute.  It is just as important to observe an appropriate chain of command for a match as in any other organization.”
	Therefore, it is important to note that the chain of command at Coyote Creek is as follows:
		(1)  Timer/Operator
		(2)  Posse Leader
		(2)  Range Master -  Rattlesnake Blake
		(3)  Match Director -  Crazy Emmitt
		(4)  Should an appeal be necessary, this would be the final step.


Why Take A RO Course???	

Perhaps the thought of taking an RO class has crossed your mind, but you asked yourself the question, “But why?”  If you have no plans to be a posse leader, you may have wondered if there is a need for you to sit in on an RO class.

Any time we play a game, it always make us better players when we know the rules.  Ours is a sport where the rules of the game sometimes change from year to year.  In addition, you need to know the rules of the game to perhaps personally support your position if a call is may against an action that you have taken where you feel you were right in how you handled the situation.

There will be two upcoming RO classes (RO I and RO II) held at Coyote Creek in the coming months.  If you have not participated in a previous class, contact Rattlesnake Blake to register.  If you have participated in a previous class, it is recommended that you to occasionally review your material — or you may sit in and audit the class (no charge) as a refresher.
