Can someone talk to me about the MTFCI Judging Guidelines? What are they?
Are they basically considered the 'authority' and the 'best of our knowledge' on changes to the T over the years? Is it pretty reliable information?
Russ Furstnow and the MTFCI do a great job of publishing the guidelines and keeping them up to date.
Yes Jason, it's a great guideline. It gets updated periodically and represents the best of what is currently known about the T. That said, I'm sure that there is some debate about some of the data contained within, but that's only normal as we continue to learn.
Yes, there are bound to be some errors. But Russ knows his stuff, and I expect the the other folks involved do too. You can't totally eliminate misteaks, but in this case the odds are they're mighty few.
I really love this quote of yours!
