  SPECIAL ATTENTION PLEASE FROM ALL JUDGES AND UNLIMITED POWER COMPETITORS

The IAC Board of Directors has acted to make a mid-year modification to the
IAC Official Contest Rules book in the area of Unlimited Power Free Program
versatility. This change was made in keeping with the IAC policy of
synchronizing the CIVA and IAC competition rules for the Unlimited categories.

BACKGROUND

The current IAC rule 6.3.2 requires that all Unlimited Power Free programs
have at least one and not more than four Family 8.1 thru 8.4 figures.
Although this rule has been in place for at least the last four years, it
was recently noted that the CIVA Part 1 regulations require a minimum of one
Family 8 figure (any catalog number) with a maximum of four Family 8.1 thru
8.4 figures.

In light of this difference, and the policy of synchronizing rules for
Unlimited competition, the Board acted. Please note: THE FOLLOWING RULE
CHANGE DOES NOT IMPACT THE LEGALITY OF ANY UNLIMITED FREE PROGRAM CURRENTLY
IN COMPLIANCE WITH THE ORIGINAL IAC RULE. If the Unlimited power Free was
legal before this change, it is still legal and no changes or new approval
need be made.

THE CHANGE

Please make the following change to your 2002 IAC Official Contest Rules book:

(1)  On page 6.4, under rule 6.3.2 POWER, UNLIMITED, change the words in the
left-hand column which begin "Combination of Lines....." to:

"Combination of Lines, Angles and Loops (minimum of one Family 8 figure and
a maximum of four Family 8.1 - 8.4 figures)"

(2)  Same place, but right-hand column, change "8.1 thru 8.4" to:

"Family 8"

THIS RULE CHANGE IS EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY.

Please direct any questions regarding this change directly to me.

Best to all,


Brian Howard
Chairman, IAC Rules Committee
