rules 2010

Fri Jan 15, 2010 7:04 pm

mostly the same rules apply with the addition of (see below)

to make this fair so no cheating can happen, some part of the shore/beach must be visable.. also piece of paper with your 'username' and 'SAI Shore Comp 2010' printed in large bold letters must be in the photo too.
in effect from the 20th jan 2010

well if people are going to cheat its totally up to them, but as long as they realise that they are the fools for doing so and it really shows what their character is really like,
so you can play honest and win an honest prize.. or cheat and get a prize that you don't really deserve..

Well said Steve, i've heard the stories about people who cheated in comps all those years ago,,,,,,,,,their cheating is still remembered and being talked about all these years later :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll:. Thats what they'll be remembered for and not their wins in the comps,,,,,,,,is it worth it??

Well said dave and steve, you can fool everyone but your self, people compeating in these comps have scope to cheat and its up to each individual to be true not only to the other compeditors but to them selves.I dont believe there is any glory in a prize or title won by cheating.Just my tuppence worth.

P.S. good luck to all in the species hunt 2010.

Would posters please stop using the words “cheating” or “cheaters” or similar word to that effect.

If you want to express an opinion on some suspicious reports then please treat them as suspicious unless you have enough proof to defend yourself before the “Man in the Wig”.

Defamation of character is a serious offence and you may end in court for it. Penalties could see you in jail and or paying out a lot of money in compensation.

So please if you have a problem with a catch report contact a Mod first before you post something you may regret

Andy, the rules are as above. make an exception for you and someone else will come up with another reason while their fish should be included

Hi Lads. Put something together for myself there. Print it off and stick your name on the top if you want and hunt down a laminator. When you print it be careful not to select "fit to page" or you 28cm will infact be 26.

Please read the above again. If you do not understand what it means then ask an adult.

At this stage there seems to be a personality clash between some posters. My best advice to all factions is to be very careful what you put on a public forum.

A precedent has now been set in the Courts to deal with these issues. viewtopic.php?f=12&t=25734
