I have a friend who wants to play in the Valley league, but she can't seem to find the rules. I went to the VNEA web site (http://www.vnea.com/), but can't find the rules there.

Does anyone know where we can get the official VNEA rules?

After looking at these, there is a question I have. Let's say you stroke the cue ball and durring the shot you pull back and hit a ball with your stick. Is that a foul?

Also, the 8 is only neutral after the break?

From what is called in the VNEA league I play in, no hitting an object ball on your back stroke is not a foul. You foul only if you cue touches an object ball at the same time as the cueball !!!

And yes the 8 is only neutral after the break, ie, if you put the 8 on the break it is considered as a regular object ball and you keep on playing. If no foul was done, it is the breaker choice to spot the 8 or rebreak, if a foul was done on the break shot, it the breaker's opponents to either spot the 8 and shoot or rebreak.
