If you haven’t seen these they’ve been out for a few days. I wanted to share the links and offer them up for discussion in the forum. The first link is to a pdf with proposed rule changes for 2019. I can’t imagine no changes or additions will made so it will be interesting to see what makes the cut, what does not, or if they all do. The second links to a pdf of the distance report.Continue reading
