In an effort to do our part for the environment, RIHA is no longer mailing out
rulebooks and has reduced the number of other mailings sent out. Please download and print the rulebook from the
Rules page, check this website frequently, sign up for email alerts, and join the RIHA Facebook
group for up-to-date information on the annual banquet, point standings, calendar changes, the annual meeting, RI Finals
information, etc. Every little bit makes a difference!
