On the day at the event the outcome of a protest is determined by the sponsoring club’s referee and not the club.  Exception: In those circumstances when a WORRA official has sufficient knowledge of the facts of the protest (such as personal observation) and feels the safety and/or competitive outcome of that event or subsequent event may be in jeopardy, the WORRA official may overrule the referee.
