competitors must line in a prone position evenly prior to the starting procedure. The starter will give the
“heads up, heads down” command and then blow the whistle to start. Two false starts by a competitor will
be grounds for a disqualification from the event. Competitors are not to build sand mounds under their
chests. When given the heads down command, the palms of their hand must be on top of one another.
Any intentional physical contact such as grabbing, elbowing, tripping, or pushing will be grounds for
disqualification. If two or more competitors grab the same flag stick, the competitor with the hand closest
to the mark on the flag will be deemed the winner.
*** Any discrepancies may be discussed between the lead instructors from each team. However, the head
judge will make the final decision on any discrepancy. All decisions are final and there will be no appeal
process.
