2015 AWS Rule Debate?

Post by TeamCrash » Sun Jan 25, 2015 8:15 am

Is there going to be one because AWS isn't that far away.

the current rules debate is still open at the moment as far as i know ( 2014 ). if you want to discuss a rule, that's probably where to go unless your told otherwise. :)

The rule debates mainly happen between committee members and most rules have already been debated on time and time again. There is no point whatsoever in having a rules debate just before an AWS. If you want anything clarifying, just ask, but usually so called 'debates' just go round in circles.
All the rules can be found on Oliver's website, www.antweight.co.uk, and the only addition to this will be the banning of commercially available vehicles and toys.

Having said that, we should probably find a new host for the rules as Oliver is so busy now. Gary? Do you have the file to alter?

Hopefully once coursework is out the way (just 2 pieces left) I can start working properly on hosting things and such.

are we going to add the no commercially available verhicles rule into the rules document or leave it unwritten?

No, it will be added. There's no such thing as an unwritten rule.

Don't we usually have a vote before changing the rules.

In the other thread I called for objections and everyone just posted unanimous support for it. But I can ask again if you want?

I know Scott, Andy and Craig are fully behind it after conversations at the last event. I know Haz, me, Alex, Rory and Dave W are fully behind it from asking here, and I know Dan or any of the other more regular attendees didn't object either. So the only people left to 'vote' that I can think of would be you Peter, and maybe Gary or Pete C, but even if you all object it would still pass...
