The general basic rules for the NRAU Activity Contest, also named NAC, will be published here in due time. But, at present, no formal decision is known to have been made whether this webpage should contain detailed information on the NAC, or not.
The rationale behind this hesitation is that more non-NRAU sites already cover this at present. Hopefully this will be sorted out in the very near future, so stay tuned for updated information ...
