Fwd: RC: TOP TEN TIPS!!/water bottles

Ride Campers: It used to be when Vetting In at the Tevis all water bottles 
had to be removed from saddle. All Riders are weighed in. Same thing if 
weight was taken again later in the ride. I always thought this was a AERC 
Rule? Is there a fast uniform Rule on this? Vetting In has nothing to do 
with Best Condition but establishes a beginning parameter for those who do 
stand for Best Condition at the end of the ride. Now I am curious. Hope
