POINT & SCORING SYSTEM

At each sanctioned tournament, the highest finishing member will  receive 150 points, the second highest member will receive 149 points, then descend from there.  

Scoring will be based on each tournament team score with results being obtained directly from tournament organizers.

Trail standings are derived from the accumulation of points received from each tournament.

If trail receives a Disqualification result on any team/members from the tournament, there will be zero points awarded towards the trail standings.

In case of ties, the tie breaker will be based on highest previous finishes for that year, i.e. number of 1st's, 2nd's etc.  If it still remains a tie, then the heaviest weight weighed in will prevail.  If it still remains a tie, then the biggest fish weight will prevail. 

In all cases the spirit of the rule will prevail.
