Raingutter Raingutter Rules
These are general rules and speed rules. Violation can mean
disqualification from a specific race, from a competition or from the
event. In the spirit of Proverbs 19:11, "A man's wisdom gives him patience;
it is to his glory to overlook an offense.", we will over-look violations
unless they affect the outcome of a race or competition.
