Rules Question: Mulligan Sanctioning

Is SN board approval required for SN mulligan selling events?

Are these the rules relevant to that question?

PDGA 805. Tournament Procedures
PDGA 805.02 D. The scorekeeper shall record the score for each player on each hole as the total number of throws, including penalty throws.

SN 6.9.2 The PDGA Rules of Disc Golf (801 Conduct of Players, 802 Equipment, 803 Rules of Play, and 804 Tournament Procedure) apply in regards to individual round play ...

SN 6.9.3 No other rules may be stipulated which conflict with the PDGA Rules of Play, unless approved by the SN Board. Examples: the use of mulligans as a fundraising tool in charity tournaments.

The use of mulligans has been used at many SN tournaments in the past. If the TD asks if they can be used I don't see the board having a problem with them. The use of mulligans and how they plan to be used should be information provided in the tournament information so the players can make an informed decision on whether to go to the tournament or not. I'm all for charity but myself am not fond of unlimited mulligans.

I don't like it and never will! I think it is bad for SN.

Thanks John. I understand the board favors charity Mulligan use to some degree. My question is how the rules express and apply that favor. What does a TD need to do to use Mulligan sales for a charity in a SN event? I can't tell whether event specific advance approval by the board is required or if they are just automatically approved. Also, which rules are we supposed to glean the answer from if not the rules I cited?
