Macquarie Dictionary:

normally, adverb. as a rule; regularly; according
to rule, general custom, etc.

Law 81C prologue, second sentence:

The Director's duties and powers ++normally++
include also the following:

Nigel Guthrie:

>IMO this should simply say "The director's
>duties are". Otherwise you risk the
>interpretation: "these [few things] are duties.
>The rest are powers that the director may
>exercise if he feels like doing so.

Richard Hills:

My $0.02 worth is that the Drafting Committee
carefully chose the flexible "normally" instead of
Nigel's rigid "are" so that a Regulating Authority
or a Tournament Organizer could add and/or
subtract duties and powers from the Director's
++normal++ duties and powers as required by
the particular needs for a particular tournament.

Law 80 footnote:

* It is ++normal++ in some jurisdictions for the
Director to assume responsibility for some or all
of the tasks that the Tournament Organizer is
here required to arrange.
