Circular logic...of a sort.

The issue (it appears) is how to ENFORCE the rules...not what the rules are.

So, whether the rule states no more than the amount of power allowed by LOCAL rules/regulations or no more than 1000watts <period>...HOW do you enforce it?

Rules can be written all day long...but UNTIL there is a method to ENFORCE the rules...they are worth...well, you get the picture.

Of course, 98+ of the participants hopefully are following both the spirit and the law. Figure 2% of 4000 entrants = 80 cheaters out of the crowd...
