Where to Start the Joust
A while back, we converted to starting the joust at the back boards. The problem here is that many think it should be okay for someone to track stand behind the goal line before the whistle blows in order to get a better jump. It is impossible to do this with your rear wheel touching the back boards for any amount of considerable time. Maybe we could move the starting line back to the goal line and dictate that courts for the 2014 season must have goal lines extending across the court. Maybe we should leave it because it makes it easier to see if someone is cheating? What do you think and why? Go:
§3.1 – Start of the game
§3.1.1 – Players are stationary, on their bicycles,with rear wheel touching the boards behind the net.
