The new WAWSDA Encourage rule as passed by the majority at the 2023 AGM.
Encourage workers are allowed five encourage runs with a mentor to assist them, and five additional runs, either in the novice or improver events depending on what is convenient to the worker.
Once the worker’s encourage status is completed (ten runs in total), the worker has the opportunity to enter the novice, improver, and open events as the trial committee determines.
Encourage events are usually run on Saturdays to allow people to participate if they are working.
