History of the NWDRC

The Northwest JROTC Drill & Rifle Conference (NWDRC) was established in 1970 as the Puget Sound Drill and Rifle Conference with four members. The name was changed in 1984 as more schools east of the mountains, and from other states were added to the conference. The conference members adhere to the Washington State Interscholastic Athletic Association rules and regulations and the applicable Oregon interscholastic rules and regulation.

Purpose of the NWDRC

The "NORTHWEST DRILL & RIFLE CONFERENCE MANUAL" (the manual) is designed to provide the policies and procedures for the conduct of the NWDRC. The policies and procedures will be made by majority vote of the members present at a conference meeting called by the conference commissioner. Any situation that occurs at a NWDRC meet that is not specifically covered by the manual will be resolved by the division coordinator at the time unless it can be postponed until it can be referred to the conference commissioner or a conference meeting.

By-Laws of the NWDRC

  1. The governing body of the NWDRC is composed of all instructors from the member schools.
  2. The governing body will meet annually at the end of the competitive season. Next meeting will be held: as soon as possible after the Conference Championships but NLT May; date and location are TBD but the Conference Chairman and Division Coordinators will let you know NLT at the conference championships.
  3. Business will be conducted by the governing body using Robert’s Rules of Order as a guide.
  4. Any instructor may introduce a motion. A simple majority of the members present is sufficient for passage or defeat. Each member school will have one vote. The conference commissioner may vote to break ties.

Conference Goals

  1. To provide a format for drill and marksmanship competition among the JROTC units in the Northwestern United States.
  2. To encourage maximum participation by the largest number of students consistent with good competition, and recognizing that each school may have a unique situation.
  3. To provide a competitive format, annual schedule, and suitable awards to be presented at conference meets.
