2.4 Line-Of-Sight

line-of-sightIn the situation of the Deed being an outdoor activity, you may not call Shotgun until the automobile is within your sight. This rule should be used when the passengers are outside for a long time and have traveled long distances from the car, as with a day of back country snow skiing, a day at the beach, or sporting event not located in a stadium.

2.4.1 Sitting outside at a restaurant or at venue with an established entrance, gate, or arch is not considered an outdoor activity. If you are at one of these facilities or venues, Shotgun can be called once you have left said facility through the established entrance. You do not have to see the vehicle to call Shotgun when leaving these types of venues.

    I need an official ruling on whether line of sight applies when leaving a restaurant but the vehicle cannot be seen

      The Line of Sight rule only applies to outdoor events. Coming out of a restaurant is not an outdoor event. Line-of-Sight does not apply.

  2. […] you are wearing your ski boots, as is everyone else in your party, you may call Shotgun as soon as you can see the vehicle. Once at the vehicle you can change into your shoes without loosing […]

  3. […] 2.1.3 If majority of passengers’ change of shoes (50% or more) are stored in the vehicle, you are all deemed to be on a level playing field and Shotgun may be call when the Deed is done and you can see the vehicle. […]

  4. […] 2.3.2 At Sporting events that take place outdoors and not in a stadium, Shotgun may be called at the final whistle or horn or agreed upon end of game/event, if you can see the car. […]

  5. […] outdoors, even if they are underground and connected to the building, therefore they fall under the Line of Sight […]

    I once asked the guy who was driving if I could see his car from where i was standing, and he said yes. I then called shotgun, but my friends said it didn’t count because i didn’t know which car we would drive. Still, i claimed my front seat seeing as the rule clearly states you have to be within sight of the car when calling, and i was. I was right, right?

      Geir, you are right! You get shotgun. The rule says you must be able to see the car.
