Fenceposts with Concrete Bases Define Out of Bounds. RoG, Definitions, Out of Bounds; Decision 24/3 and GoRaC 4.2. Local Rule. Revised 2015-01-13. 
IN DEPTH: Boundary-fence posts are sometimes set in concrete bases. Such a base is part of the fence and thus no part of it is an obstruction (see Definitions, Obstructions). If such bases are at or below ground level, the boundary line is determined by the nearest, most inside points of the concrete bases posts at ground level.
If any base is above ground level, the Committee should clarify the location of the boundary line either by using a local rule (see below) or define out of bounds with white stakes inside the fence posts and in that case there is no need for a local rule.

Suggested wording. The title and the penalty may be removed when this Rule stands together with other Rules under a specific headline.
