Flag Order 87 is titled "Titles of Address (Add Etiquette)", not "Rocks
and Shoals". FO 87 is where the definition of "rocks and shoals" given in
the Tech Dictionary is taken from. It says: "Rocks and shoals, in most
Sea Organizations a list of penalties is called rocks and shoals and is
read out to the crew at muster. The conditions are our rocks and shoals."

The penalty could be just about anything ranging from "overboarding" of
someone, galley duty, removing barnacles from the ship, or cleaning out
the bilge. The penalty was almost always something very unpleasant, and
the penalty (amends) are done in addition to one's usual post duties,
which is to say *after* 10:30 PM in most SO orgs.

The Flag Order 3434 Series covers the RPF Program. The are numerous issues
numbered beginning with FO 3434, 3434-1, 3434-2, 3434-3, etc.

In PAC, the RPF ran around the Complex Building. In the desert an RPFer
would probably run around a tree or pole or rock - whatever. Per LRH tech,
the important part to him was that the RPFer *ran* _everywhere_ he/she went.

The running program is part of the RPF. I don't believe ElRon "invented"
it as part of the RPF. He claimed that it caused a person to extrovert or
"exteriorize". In reality it exhausted people.

Realize that if you are a Scientologist reading this, your cult's policy says
that you are committing a "SUPPRESSIVE ACT" by doing so, unless it is your "hat"
to be a "terminal" on a "post" whose "duty" is to "handle PTSes and SPs"!!!
So, are you an "Ethics Officer", or are you an "SP"?
