  • F/TR Rules to be included in the SSRs

    • June 2, 2014
    • 1 minute read

    At the November 2014 Annual General Meeting of the NRAA, the States and Territories passed a motion that the F/TR Discipline be included in competitions available for Organisations wishing to include it. Also that the F/TR Rules be included in the SSR’s.

    The F/TR Rules were extracted from the ICFRA Rules and are as much as possible a copy of ICFRA. Other rules have been included to enable the F/TR Rules to fit in with Australian conditions, such as Time Limits, Safety procedures, Targets, Scoring Procedures, Super V’s and other values etc.
