General Rules for the Casual Competitor (GRCC)

By Jeff Vincent, NAR Northeast Regional Contest Board Chairman

While Jennifer Ash-Poole's Guide to Competition for the Casual Competitor (GCCC) gives a good "taste" of the rules for individual events, it doesn't cover some of the general rules that control competition flying. These general rules are covered in the first 18 sections of the Pink Book. This summary is intended to explain "just enough" of the rules for a new flyer to get started flying his or her first few meets. It is not comprehensive and, as always, you should refer to the Pink Book for the full and official rules. I've included cites to specific rules, so you can look up the pertinent text in the Pink Book.
