idea to let the officials know in advance so they can ensure everything is in
place and provide lap scorer forms (or even a scorer if necessary).

- Don't forget, if you have your own implement, it should be weighed prior to the competition and put in the 'pool'.
- Centre records must be claimed within 30 days of the event.
- We will endeavour to review official Masters Championship results to identify
