I applaud the regulations and think they definitely have their place, especially when you open up the invites to a much more diverse crowd, much more likely to have the young and stupid interested (ok... old and stupid is possible, too).
Not saying I disagree, I just think it's funny that it's managed down to the position every car has in the convoy. I've seen various local meets go awry, meets that weren't vehicle specific. One meet in particular, half the convoy got split up and didn't know where the other half was going, and then someone got the bright idea to stop the entire convoy of 50 or so cars at a tiny gas station, inundating the parking lot. Then of course during the middle of the cruise, they decided to stage impromptu drag races *while* the cruise was ongoing.
But yeah, rules are needed, I agree.
