Rules Violation Consequences

If any egregious infraction takes place, such student will be sent home the
following morning at their parents’ expense and may not be able to
attend next year’s event. Students who are outside after our designated
curfew and are resistant to committee and sponsor direction to return to
their dorm will be considered in violation of their promise to “abide by all
rules determined by the RYS Board.” The students’ convention experience
will be concluded immediately. The student becomes the full
responsibility of the sponsor.
These rules were printed on the registration form and electronically
signed by everyone.
