Rule Interpretation Rule 8.2

After consultation with the SCOA Regional Directors we have agreed to interpret the last line of Rule 8.2 to also allow replacement of the upper shroud retaining screws with a through bolt and nut. The screw holes can become worn like the spreader retaining screws and replacement with a through bolt and nut conveys no advantage and avoids having to replace the mast.
This interpretation shall be in effect until the next Class ballot when a revised rule will be proposed for membership approval.
