Answered: Rule 7 Clarification

A previous version of the Sack Attack Game Manual specifically listed Garolite as an allowed material under Rule 7(f). I noticed that the updated manual (6-22-12) does not list Garolite. Is Garolite still allowed? is it one of the following Acronyms? Thanks.

No, Garolite is not allowed. Here’s a post describing why <R7> was edited:

It was determined that the cutting of Garolite could be problematic and cause unnecessary safety issues.

Thank you.
