And he is right, and SASS recognizes it. By not penalizing everyone that earned the penalty, everyone that did comply with the regulations was penalized. Not a knock on anyone, that is just the organization's statement of fact. Ignorance of the law is no excuse for breaking it. OK. If we're viewing it from the perspective of the TO, is ignorance of the rule an excuse for not penalizing? In other words, if there is a question in your mind about whether something was a violation, do you assess a penalty? You're at a match, you're the TO, you can't get clarification from the SHB, you're out of cell range so you can't call Buck, you think it 'might' be a penalty, but you're not sure. Next shooter. That's all I have to contribute. I understand the rule now. Thanks all. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
