Rulebook updated to Revision 3

There were a few errors in the last version of the 2009 rulebook. These were mostly mid season changes that were made in 2008 but did not get carried over to the 2009 rule book.

We have fixed the errors and posted a new PDF. Please make sure your rulebook is the most resent version, currently Revision 3.
