United we stand, divided we fall is a well-known fact to mostly all of us.
The fact that matters is if we really believe on this.
If you really think, you can work up as a great support for your team, then show it out to the
others who are already on their marks to go. Tug of War, the battle which demands the best of team
coordination and game spirit to fight it with flying colours.
So, don't be late in pulling the rope to your domain and get your teams registered for the same ASAP and show the
crowd that you and your team deserves a stand out of the crowd.
According to the rules of tug of war
each team can accommodate a maximum of 8 members.
The game involves usage of single equipment i.e. a rope.
There is a red mark made in the middle
of the rope.
This red mark on the rope needs to be at a perpendicular angle
to the exact center point on the ground, before the commencement of the game.
A white mark is made exactly
13 feet from the red mark on either sides of the rope.
The game is won when either side with this
white mark crosses the center point.
Lowering your elbow below the knee level while pulling the rope is considered to be a foul and is called 'locking'.
Touching the ground for a longer period of time is also considered as a foul.
The tug of war competition requires a judge.
The judge first announces 'Pick up the rope', he then says 'Take the string', and finally he tells the players to 'Pull'.
Once the pull command is said out the teams start pulling the rope.
If a member of the team falls down that member is given a caution.
Each team is allowed two cautions before getting disqualified.
On either sides of the rope at the distance of 4 m from the center line,
2 more marks need to be made.
This is the point where in the first member of each team will stand.
