## WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:

Once an athlete has nominated a rodeo/event (prior to the start of rodeo), points will be awarded if/when the athlete places at the rodeo/event and earns money. Points are weighted differently for each division and are scaled for go rounds and final rounds/ aggregates. Points are awarded in each go around up to the top ten money winners.

Points are distributed based on the number of paid places at an event and begin with the base points in the last place hole paid out. There are base points for Go Rounds, and base points for Finals/Average Rounds. Each division base points are as follows:

### WCRA Divisional Rankings

**Rodeo Divisional Rankings **

**Finals & Average Base Points**

#### To determine how many points, you will receive for a placing, follow this method:

- Identify the division of the event you competed at, how many paid places there are in each round of the competition, and where you placed.
- Verify if it was a go-round or a final/average round.
- For the last paid position (up to 10 paid places), award the base points.
- Then, for every position above the last paid position, add the base value plus the value from the position below it.
- For the first place position, add the base points to the 2nd place value, plus the “bump” (which is the base points again).
- Repeat this step for every go-round/final round/average round in your competition.

Based on your points earned through your nominated performances, advance to one of the $500,000 Semi-Finals Events and possibly on to a one-day $1,000,000 major rodeo. Check leaderboard standing HERE.

## More About Points

Consolation points are available at alliance events. A list of alliances can be found here. Consolation points are awarded to those who nominated and competed in alliance events but did not earn a check. Consolation points are equal to one-half of the lowest based point total paid in any given round at that event.

Example: If the last hole pays 3.0 points, anyone who nominated and competed for the event but did not earn a check are awarded 1.5 points.

- Division 1: 7.5 consolation points
- Division 2: 4.5 consolation points
- Division 3: 3 consolation points
- Division 4: 1.5 consolation points

- Division I: 1.0 points
- Division II: .75 points
- Division III: .50 points
- Division IV: .25 points

In an instance where athletes tied, the total points for the tied places will be added together and split evenly between the total number of tied places.

Note: If several athletes tie for 10th place, they will split the base points for last place. If the points equal less than the consolation or nomination point total, the athletes will receive the greater value of points.
