Item 3.  Addition to Statute to clarify when restrictions on team movement begin.
Submitted by the Entry Clerk. 27 January, 2007.

Section 16.D. (New) The restrictions on player movement and roster changes given in this statute do not become effective until the Pairing Posting Deadline (PPD) of round 1 of the tournament being conducted. Prior to the PPD, teams may make as many changes to their rosters as they wish, so long as they continue to meet the Section and player eligibility requirements.

Explanation by the Entry Clerk, as presented to the Rules Subcommittee:

For several years, at least since T13 when I became entry clerk, I have taken the thus far unchallenged position that the rules of Section 16 are to be applied once the Pairing Posting Deadline (PPD) of round 1 begins, such as 22:00 Jan. 16 for T32.

Prior to the PPD I have allowed all changes to a team roster to be made without any consideration of Section 16, except that an entered team has to limit changes to those that keep its eligibility to the section they entered, and the limits on player eligibility by his or her RR.

This is not uniformly known, and occasionally captains have misunderstood what they can and cannot do prior to the PPD.

My reasoning is simple. No unfair advantage, or harm, comes to any team until the competition actually begins.
