RULES OF THE GAME

HELMETS ARE REQUIRED

This event is competitor judged. Each group will vote on the winner of their categories at the conclusion of their Heat.

In the event that the participants in the Heat cannot name a winner, the Event Director will call for a 1-3 hit Re-Jam for the top finishers!

In the event of any conflict the Event Director will have final say in any disputes.

Participants will indicate they are ready to take their turn by announcing they are DROPPING. COMPETITORS MUST ATTEND RIDER MEETING @ 9:45 for more details about format.

No using features during the feature maintenance periods between heats as STICKS ZONE specialists will do course maintenance.

No sandbagging. If you a beginner, you know it! Same goes for Expert. Otherwise you are an intermediate. It will be immediately obvious to the event crew and your fellow competitors if your intention is to under claim your abilities.

No inverted tricks are permitted. If you have a question about a specific trick please ask the Event Director prior to start the competition.

Participants under the influence of drugs or alcohol will not be permitted to compete.

Unsportslike conduct will not be tolerated. Unruly behavior or offense language will get you ejected.
