PREAMBLE: These Rules are written on experience obtained by the Association over many years of operating. They are presented primarily in the interest of SAFETY, and to encourage good fellowship amongst Members.

 

The Association appoints Safety Officers on an annual basis, the job not only ensuring safe conduct at the field, but to report breaches of the Rules to the Committee. A Safety Officer is empowered to ground for a day anyone considered having knowingly breached the Rules. Every Member has a responsibility to act SAFELY while at the field, and see that others do.
