Title: Rulebook
Post by: Jack Gifford on December 15, 2017, 12:15:38 AM
Does ECTA publish a rulebook, or are rules all based on SCTA?

Jack,

     They have in the past.  Some what of a reorganization is currently underway with the latest changes in venue and leadership.  Indications are that more specific info on the coming season will be coming our way sometime after Jan 1st.

     ECTA and LTA rules and classes are very similar to, but not exactly the same as, SCTA.  There are many subtle differences between all 3, it helps to have all 3 in hand for prep and participating.

Thanks Ed. Anybody no longer using an out-dated ECTA rulebook they want to donate (or sell?) to me? Same question for LTA?

The 2016 version of the LTA rule book is online - http://docs.wixstatic.com/ugd/3bd111_e855c8b54e6f471fa9bbc5a5ebcdca37.pdf

What class or classes are you planning to run?   Maybe someone can offer some help on a particular class - rule wise - for ECTA and/or LTA.

Thanks for the replies.
Jim- sent you an email.
Littleliner- I've started reading the online LTA rules. But I'll still be looking for a printed copy, which is easier for me to compare with the SCTA book.
I'll run F/BFL, if anyone wants to point out differences from SCTA rules (in ECTA and LTA) for that class.

IMHO if you build and equip to the SCTA Book, you will be fine at any venue. with that said, you will be way overbuilt for some.

Yeah, I realize they are all based on the SCTA rules. While I've got time (very wintry here!) I want to look for any rules differences- hoping to avoid surprises.
