Deer Park Club / J Spiteri lodged a letter seeking further  clarification on ETS clocking procedure.

Response is as follows:

The placement of ETS was discussed at length at this meeting in line with previous extensive deliberation in August BOM 2014. This racing by – law was amended in August 2014 to provide a fair and equitable playing filed for all members. The rule was updated from its initial inception in 2005. Rule 13.9 reads:

Amendment   reads:  Electronic pads must be underneath the common roof line and built into the face wall of the loft. The sensors / antennas of an EBSS must be within the entrance of the loft.

(This includes an entry into the face wall of the loft, as long as it is considered the entrance.)

Time does not permit any changes to this by law in 2015 racing season.
