Lodges are reminded of the following overall rules that apply to all Quest Events:

  • If at any time during a competition a lodge is caught cheating, they will be automatically disqualified in that particular Quest Event.
  • Cleats or other studded shoes are not permitted in any Quest Event. Failure to comply will result in immediate dis-qualification of the offending lodge in that Quest Event.
  • A total of 100 points will be deducted from the total GOLDEN ARROW competition score of any lodge that does not provide the requested number of judges.
  • If a lodge has a question or concern about any ruling made by an event Judge, such concerns may only be voiced to the event Judge by the Lodge’s Team Captain (i.e. no one besides the Team Captain should engage with an event Judge over any ruling). The Quest Conclave Vice Chief is ultimately in charge of all Quest Events.
