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.
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.
WHAT TYPE OF POINTS CAN I RECEIVE?
Competition Points– Points earned for placing in up to 10 paid positions per the WCRA point system.
Consolation Points– Points earned at alliance events for nominations that do not result in earning competition points
Nomination Points– Points that are awarded when no competition points, nor consolation points are earned or awarded.
CONSOLATION POINTS BREAKDOWN:
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 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.
