TAKING A LETTER
42
43
You receive a letter after you do not post a video of yourself doing the trick before its due date or you 'pass' on the trick before the due date. Due dates are noted on the Google Doc spreadsheet.
44
45
46
If the player(s) is unsuccessful at posting the trick video by the due date, , then they will receive a letter. For each unsuccessful match, the player receives an "R" "O" "L' "L" "E" "R" "S", "K", "A", "T" or "E" Depending on how many tricks a player fails to post, respectively. Once a player receives a second "E" they are out of the game.

TRICKS
51
52
The beauty of video! You do not have to post a video of you landing it on the first try. You have at least 2 weeks to learn it and post it depending on when the previous trick was posted.

STANCE
56
57
You will find throughout the game that quad skaters are few and far between the earth with various skate backgrounds, experience and influences.
58
59
60
Some of us skate side stance while others skate parallel. The goal of the game is progress as skaters and with respect to everyone.
61
62
63
The stance that is displayed in the video is the stance that you are expected to use unless otherwise specified by the trick owner.
64
65
FAILING POSTS
66
The player that sets the trick- owns the trick. Your version of the trick may have be a slightly different variation of the trick, but the OWNER of the trick (the person that first posted a video of it) will be the ultimate judge of whether it passes or fails.
67
68
You must not fall or take a knee or drop a hand to the ground where it should not be in order to pass a post without receiving a letter.
