POINTS SCORE SYSTEM

HOW POINTS ARE CALCULATED
Points are allocated as above.  Points from the top 5 shows for each entrant are added together, the rest of the show points are discarded (i.e if you go to 10 shows and won lots of 1st’s at 5 of them but didn’t do so well at the other 5, only the top 5 shows are counted).  This helps to even out the playing field for areas that don’t have many shows. 

 

RECORDING YOUR PLACINGS
It is the Rider’s responsibility to email all placings recorded to the High Points Secretary within 14 days of the show. Placings will be cross checked with official results received from Show Secretary. Points that are not received within 14 days will not be included. 
Placings to be emailed to:  dawnhighpoints@hotmail.com Dawn Runtle – High Points Secretary.  

PRIZES
There will be prizes 1st-6th at the end of the season for: Overall Highest Points earned across all classes. And for the top scoring combinations in each of the Individual Classes. Regular updates of the standings throughout the season will be emailed out to all entrants.
