Un-heated fans are not illegal. If they were, nobody could use any sort of computer controlled stoker fan system. This rule is specifically about heat sources, and according to this latest ruling, the team using a blow dryer to give the turn-in box one last blast of heat would be DQ'd.
The way I read the minutes, this ruling merely clarified the existing rule and is in effect immediately upon approval by the board. Could be I'm wrong... wouldn't surprise me one bit.
