Default 2008 Turtle Ridge Rock Challenge Rules/Updates

Just wanted everyone to know that I have posted the rules and guide lines for the 2008 TRRC on Drummond Island on my website(which will be host to all the info and entry forms for the competition.) Our TRRC committee met several times to discuss these new updated rules and feel they are realistic, practical, and most of all fair to everyone.

So, please go check them out and start getting your self ready if you plan on trying to enter for this next years competition. Thanks

Umm....it's against the rules to not have a locker? That is a strange rule.

Simply put, if you don't have lockers you aren't even going to finish in the top half...........if at all. Well, I guess you could pull cable on every event, on every rock, three or four times.

Point was that it's a strange rule. I mean you don't say anything about having tread on your tires or a clutch that doesn't slip.

I think that he means that it is strange in the sense of it being a no brainer. It is like saying that a helmet is madatory in NASCAR. There doesn't need to be a rule, you should just have a locker if you want to compete.

That's what I meant. Not that it was an unreasonable rule, but sorta one that need not be there.
