Answered: Placement of rings at the start of the match


I tried looking at the rules and found nothing. Does anyone have clarification on where the rings start. One of my teams are trying to start the rings 1/8 of an inch away from the posts but still in the correct order. Last year the students were able to face the hex stars the right direction. Has anyone seen clarification of this? Is the placement of these rings ok for competition?


We apologize for the delay in answering this question. No, this would not be a correct starting placement for the Rings. The correct locations of the Rings can be seen in Figure 2 of the Game Manual and page 7 of the Field Appendix. The left-most Ring (in your picture) should be contacting the support structure of the Post.
