I went to the Ocean State National last weekend. I was 3 weeks out of knee surgery and on Antibiotics. I was blind sided by the "New" rule of on No canopies or umbrellas, even hand held. I was in the mist of cleaning my car and was holding it to shade myself from the sun as per doctors orders. I told this to the wonderful person who told me I had to put it away. So now I'm stuck. I can't finish cleaning my car because I can not stay out in the sun even after taking a bath in sunscreen. I've won 6 firsts with my car and received a 3rd this time around. This I'm not complaining about,I knew it wasn't as clean as it could have been.
My question is, Will the MCA cover a persons medical expense for sunburns because all shows are held out in the open and hopefully on sunny days?
I know why there shouldn't be any canopies on the show field, but hand held umbrellas? Not like it's going to fly away from a persons hand.
I believe the "New" rule, which by the way wasn't written in any of the show material, should be modified to allow hand held umbrellas.
