Competition Regulations 

Please refresh your browser each time you visit this page to assure you are looking at the most current information.

Members unable to print from the web may obtain a copy by sending a check for $5.00 per section (General Section included) to the AMA Competitions Department. A complete copy (all sections) may be obtained for $20.00.  

The latest versions of the Competition Regulations are now online. These incorporate all of the rules proposals that passed final vote of the Contest Boards. Note that these new versions no longer have a date listing on the front page. This is because they now include an amendments page that lists all recent changes. This listing will be updated as necessary. Hopefully, this will make it easier for competitors to see what rules have been changed and quickly find them. A table of contents will also make finding what you are looking for easier.

Also, you will note that we have given the Competition Regulations a much-needed facelift! We hope you like it!

Note: At the July, 2015 Executive Council meeting, the Council voted to dissolve the Electric Contest Board. To read more about the changes, click here.
