General Information

The first six events will be run in 3 divisions: Under 18, Under 13 and Under 10.

Points are accumulated by competitors throughout the first 6 events

The Grand Prix prizes are presented at the conclusion of the End of Year Windup.
The End of Year Windup Blitz event does not count towards Grand Prix points.

A points tally is kept for each of the three divisions and is calculated as follows:
1st = 25pts, 2nd = 20pts, 3rd = 16pts, 4th = 14pts, 5th = 12pts, 6th = 10pts, 7th = 9pts, 8th = 8pts,
9th = 7pts, 10th = 6pts, 11th = 5pts, 12th = 4pts, 13th = 3pts, 14th = 2pts, Participation = 1pt.

The total of each player's four best results will be their Grand Prix total.
