Thanks to Thilo and Toby for providing contest details to me. I have run the German text through the proverbial internet translator(s) (3 actually). I am impressed by the responsible and well thought out approach presented in the rules. I would like to pass them along to others contemplating organizing competitions in other parts of the world. I think these rules will set the trend for the future. Unfortunately, the internet translations are lacking as always.

I have reproduced the original German text below and one of the better translations. Help in cleaning up the translation by someone fluent in German would be very sincerely appreciated.

Thanks!

btw, some of the text sounds really horrible. This is because legal-minded German is very difficult to translate into english.

Thanks again,
