A motion for a vote for the second time to accept version B of the double green rule
Motion Mike Bell
Second Bill Torki

Version B (Variable penalty):
... Any section of the trail marked by a pair of double over-and under GREEN arrows on both sides of the trail indicates the competitors must ride between the two sets of arrows and cannot ride outside either pair of arrows. Any time a rider leaves the trail as defined above, (either by “line picking:’ overshooting turns, failing to pass between GREEN arrows, emergency, etc.) that rider must return to the trail and re-enter at the point they left – failure to do so is a rule violation.  Any such violation reported to the FTR Referee, Associate Referee, or Scorekeeper prior to the end of the protest period in writing on official DQ/penalty form available at FTR trailer, shall result in the rider being docked by one finishing position or more, up to Disqualification from the event, in accordance  with Article XIV of the FTR Constitution. A violation of this section does not automatically constitute blatant “course cutting”, as discussed in Chapter VIII, section B-1a.
Markers must be visible one to the next
