What does “Right of Choice” mean?


A “Right Of Choice”is determined by measuring the distance (on a well-travelled road.) from:

· the end of the players' laneway to the post office in Shallow Lake and

· the end of the players’ laneway to the post office in the next nearest Centre(s).

The difference between these two distances must not exceed eight (8) km. If it does, the player does not have the "Right of Choice" and must play in their closest centre.

If it is less than 8 km, the player has the right to choose which centre to play in and must complete a [Right of Choice] Declaration.


There may be more than one centre that needs to be taken into consideration.

Once a R.O.C. is completed, the player must play in that centre unless released.
