SC T55-56 Agenda Item 2 - Editorial revision of Section 10.G.i.b.
A rules committee member has suggested that Section 10.G.i.b be reworded to show the penalty (forfeit) for failure to reschedule a game instead of the consequence of the forfeit (RR reduction).
“If no rescheduled time is reached, resulting in the game not played, a [Reliability Rating Point must be deducted from] forfeit must be charged to the player who originally asked to reschedule.” Remove brackets, insert underlined.
4 March 2013
One concern expressed about not mentioning the RR reduction, but that is covered in 10.G.iii
