After careful consideration it has been decided to amend the playing rules concerning Trios where the result is a Tie. Previously Joint winners in Class 1 and 2 have been promoted. From now that practice will cease and be replaced by the following:-
Joint Winners, if a player is joint winner in 2 Trios in the same Class he will be promoted to the Class above. This also applies to Trio semi-finals. Players start at 0 following relegation if they have one draw and then get relegated that draw is cancelled out.
Multiple Entries are now allowed only in Class 1.
Entry rules – All players start in Class 1 unless their ICCF Rating is > 2000 in which case they will start in Class 2 or Class 3 if rated >2200
