1. The KBF Event Rules Addendum on this page and the KBF Competition Rules Standards are in effect for this event. KBF uses TourneyX and Facebook for informational purposes only; to communicate instructions and additional details. If discrepancies or inconsistencies exist between this Calendar Event Page and those other two references, the information on this page takes precedence.

2. Autumn mornings mean fog, especially in river bottoms and lakes, where warm water and cold air collide. Some areas of Chickamauga will be shrouded in fog, while others will be clear at start time. KBF makes no provision for adjusting start times due to fog; just exercise caution, keep your whistle close at hand, and stay out of boat traffic lanes until visibility improves.
