The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

So what does everyone think about this?

Starting in 2010 if you want to compete in a National Tour event you will not only have to be on your game but you will have to demonstrate your knowledge of the Rules of Play as well. At this year's Fall Summit the Board of Directors voted that all NT participants will be required to pass a Rules Proficiency Exam before being allowed to tee off.

The exam will be an online test consisting of 15 questions which are taken from a much larger pool of questions. In order to pass the exam the player must answer 12 (80%) correctly. There will be no limit to the number of times a player can take the online exam. The questions asked will be similar to the certified officials exam which is also an open book format. Players are urged to have a rule book available while taking the exam.

An open book test with unlimited attempts seems to be more of a token gesture in my opinion. I appreciate what they're trying to do, but I'm not sure that this will lead to better or more frequent rule enforcement at a tournament. I'm assuming that's what they're going for, right?
Do we know if Certified Officials are exempt from the test?
I don't see a problem with it honestly, I mean it is 15 questions and you have to get 12 right and can take it as many times as you want. I'm sure that anybody who has been playing this game for as long as most of the pros, it'll be ez-sauce.
If It's Free , no problem.
