I’d rather have one than any WaterSkier mags. Put your advertising in the rule book.

    Digital rule books available on line. I keep the two rule books open in my phone’s browser and can open them in a jiffy. No need to walk around with a printed version unless you are CJ. Once you understand their organization, they are pretty easy to navigate.

    Its pretty easy to find online. I would much rather print my own than have the expense of an organization printing and mailing only to have 98% of them go straight in the trash.

    Anything that AWSA has that can be digital, should be digital. I don't look at the regional guide, I go the USA waterski and register for events in my area. I don't read waterski magazine... because secretly I can't actually read. Like most skiers I haven't read the rule book but know what I need to know to maintain my assistant judge and driver ratings.

    How about another option: “ everyone should read and understand the rules, and review changes from prior year”

    If nothing else people may start to understand the level of complexity involved in the sport. Every one of the sometimes absurd rules is due to something that actually happened.

    I don't need a rule book. I just call Richelle whenever I have a question.

    This 2018, I don't need a hard copy. I was Chief Judge at Tournament last week. I had a digital copy downloaded on my tablet as part of my Tournament kit that I carry.

    I do use the printed Regional guide as my primary tournament planner. Please keep it.

    Waterski magazine is fun.

    I print out the rulebook when I'm putting on a judges clinic. It's a good prop for the instruction. I might hook up a laptop to a TV next time. The online version works great when acting as chief judge or when answering questions on site.

    Richelle causes the problems @Bruce_Butterfield mentioned. But that's usually in response to some proposal I submitted.

    @disland you do know that all the international rules that apply to ELR are also in our rulebook?

    @Horton Yes, my post was a a jab at my continued frustration that we have two rulebooks and governing bodies
