Hi John,
Those ground planes are not INTERNAL but EXTERNAL. That was why I was confused as to what to do with the guard rings. Do I clear the ground away from the pads in questions so that the ground plane doesn't pour right up to the pads and possibly between them? Or do I let the copper pour do it's thing.
