Grand Prix Series 2012

The committee have decided to introduce a Grand Prix Series into the club for 2012 as an added incentive to participate in club races and have some fun in the process.  At the end of the series, prizes will be awarded to the top scoring male and female.

We will be scoring the Grand Prix using the WAVA age grading system and your score for the race will be calculated from your age-adjusted time*. You may enter as many of the races as you would like to and all results will contribute to your final score.  Obviously, the more races you enter, the higher your score will be!

To be eligible, you must be a paid up member of the club and must race wearing a club vest. In addition to the 8 races listed below, you have ONE opportunity to play a wild card and have the points from a race of your choice added to your overall score.

In order to have your points counted, you must tell either Debbie ( or Mike ( your race at least 1 week prior to the event and the race must be before 30 November 2012. The league table will be updated and posted on the website so you can all see how you are doing.

Results table as at 30 November 2012 (final).

Good luck to you all, Debbie & Mike
