Competitors are expected to complete competition regardless of their record thus far in the competition. If a team defaults part way through the competition, the results of that team will be removed from the standings. The organizers shall have an extra team available to play as a “floater” team in case there is an uneven number of teams or in case a team defaults. This team’s results will not count in the final standings.  If there are any questions about rulings, the OSGA Summer Games Technical Manual will be considered correct.
