    - Buffs will be provided for all Racers in the front section of the Kaadara Theater ("Guild Hall" on the map) which is on the way to the beach from the starport.
    - Just before the start of the race, all Racers will line up, on their kaadu mounts, on the Naboo 5600 Lat line on North Kaadara Beach. There will be a brief overview of the rules, and the Race Waypoints will be sent to any Racer who needs them. Just after sunrise, there will be a short countdown followed by a fireworks display signaling the start of the race. Any Racer who jumps the start will be asked to go back and tag up at the Start Line before continuing on.
    - The race course is laid out using a series of waypoints. Race Waypoints will have indicators (< and >) to let Racers know which side to pass the Race Waypoint on. Some Race Waypoints will have special instructions to follow.
    - If a Race Waypoint does not appear on screen, use the Race Waypoint location on the overhead map (ctrl-m).
    - Racers must travel, by kaadu mount and ONLY kaadu mount, to each Race Waypoint, in order, pass them on the correct side, and follow any noted instructions.
    - There will be a volunteer riding on a swoop with the lead pack as well as volunteers stationed at various Race Waypoints to make sure the course is being followed correctly.
    - Using speeders of any kind to cover race distance is prohibited. Burst running to cover race distance is prohibited. Using shuttles to cover race distance is prohibited. Cutting the course is prohibited. Any Racer found to be breaking these rules will be disqualified immediately.
    - There is a /gallop command that will make kaadu mounts run faster for a 2 minute period. After that, Racers will have to wait 10 minutes to be able to use it again. Racers may use the /gallop command whenever they like.
    - Any racer caught pack herding will be disqualified! Racers may only have one kaadu out at a time.
    - It is advised that all Racers be On Leave while participating in the event.
    - There are aggressive mobs along the course. It is the Racer's responsibility to either attack or avoid them. Kiting mobs into the path of competitors is a perfectly legal tactic.
    - If a Racer is slain while competing: 1) Create a new waypoint at the corpse location, 2) Clone at the nearest cloner, 3) Travel back to the corpse waypoint (ok to use shuttles/speeders), 4) Continue on with the race.
    - If a Racer's kaadu is slain while competing: Simply close and reopen the kaadu mount and continue on.
    - If a Racer gets stuck on the course (can't move, running in place): First try dismounting and remounting the kaadu. If that doesn't work, try storing and reopening the kaadu. If that doesn't work, try the /unstick command. If all else fails, try relogging. Once able to continue on, do so.
    - Glitches, disconnects, server lag, hiccups, rubberbanding, blinking, ghosting, etc happen and are all beyond our control. Deal with it the best you can and continue along. If something does happen, don't give up! You never know what might happen to others in front of you.
    - If the server crashes or is shut down for any reason before the completion of the race, the race will be rerun at the same time the following day, and so on until it is completed.
    - The race winner will be the first Racer to complete 100% of the race distance, passing every checkpoint, in order, and to cross the finish line, all while riding a kaadu mount.
    - In the event of a tie... If the tie is for first place, the tying kaadus will engage in a fight to the death until there is a single winner (There is only one jetpack so there can only be one winner!). Keep this in mind when purchasing your kaadu! If there is a tie for second to fifth place, the winnings will be split among the tying Racers.
    - There may be more added to this section...

    You can get the Race Waypoints in the following ways:
    1) Email Xaeni ingame and request a copy. He'll send you an email with all of the waypoints.
    2) The day of the race, they will be mailed out to anyone who needs them.
    3) Head to Naboo (very important!), copy the following text, paste it into your ingame chat box and hit enter:
    /waypoint 5600, 6900 Start - Stay N & E of WP; /waypoint 4800, 6900 01>; /waypoint 4800, 2700 02< Stay out of the ocean; /waypoint 2050 2800 02B<; /waypoint -300, 2850 03> Stay on berm thru Keren; /waypoint 1215, -1250 04>; /waypoint 5300, -1585 05< Cross over bridge; /waypoint 4025, -7150 06<; /waypoint 2400, -3900 07>;
    Then do the same for the following:
    /waypoint -1950, -5425 08<; /waypoint -6550, -3300 09<; /waypoint -5850, -100 10>; /waypoint -6150, 4325 11<; /waypoint -5500, 4840 12< Stay uptop on grass; /waypoint -4625, 4200 13< Stay uptop N of buildings; /waypoint -4700, 4025 14< Cross over bridge; /waypoint -4800, 4100 Finish Line!;
    If you don't know how to copy/paste ingame, do a search for setting keymaps.

    Important Note!
    If you are planning on buying yourself a kaadu deed from a Bio-Engineer, know that they will take about a week or so to grow to full size, and you will need a Creature Handler to train your mount for you if you do not have the skills to do it yourself. Creature Handlers can supply you with full sized, fully trained kaadu mounts if they have any available. Don't forget your racing suits and helmets!
