As with every year, the rules are tweaked to suit the event and the course. This year the rules have had a major facelift, we’ve simplified them, reducing the document by 20% and made some important changes.
Important changes are listed below:
-Simplification and speed of complaints (have to be made within 3 hours of last team finishing)
-Water on the course and rules surrounding
-Inclusion of the maps we’ve made to be counted as an option for compulsory maps
-Female coach requirement
-Removal of light cord and groundsheet from compulsory items.
-Categorisation of penalties for missing equipment.
-lowered some penalties (for losing ID card and other equipment)
-Pushed the cutoff time back to 7pm, cutoff to be enforced strictly unlike previous years.
-Modest changes to scoring to help to disincentivise ‘stacking’ of lower divisions.
Most of these changes were flagged and discussed at the consultation over a year ago.
