When you click the link to the North Carolina Swimming Rules and Regulations you’ll notice that the document has a new look and some very nice enhancements. Thanks go to Wayne Shulby who updated the format while he was bringing the document up-to-date with recently passed legislation.
Not only did he add colored headings to highlight the various sections, but he also created a clickable Table of Contents! Both features will make the document much easier to navigate.
