4th 5 points
5th 4 points
6th 3 points
7th 2 points
Unplaced 1 point
Over the Series we will award the points each month but the
Final League Results will be taken from the best four results of each competitor during the Series.
Trophies will be awarded for 1st
- 3rd places with Certificates to 7th place.
