After spending some time training for the 2-way VFS part of the Gauntlet we realized that there is some important info left out of the rules. This info is specific to part 14 in the rules.

Here is the updated part 14. Please find attached the undated version of the 2-way VFS rules and info.

14. Performance Requirements:
14.1 The speed routines consist of a number of randoms or blocks drawn from the pools as described in dive pool.
14.2 The round will consist of 4 or 5 points for the open class and 3 or 4 points for the Intermediate class.
14.3 The order in which teams must perform their randoms or blocks is drawn.
Once the 4 to 5 points have been completed, they should be repeated, in order, until the working time has ended.
14.4 It is the competitors’ responsibility to show the points to the judges and not the judges responsibility to look for the points so stay in view of the judges.
14.5 In Open round 1 will be drawn from the back / flat dive pool, round 2 will be drawn from the head up dive pool and rounds 3-6 will be drawn from the mixed head up and head down dive pool.
14.6 In Intermediate rounds 1-2 will be drawn from the back / flat dive pool and rounds 3-6 will be drawn from the head up dive pool.
