Your position in the League will still be used to decide their place but with a positive list it will save a lot of searching by the organizer in emails and snail mail not being responded to or ignored.

New Scoring system for 2007

We are going to change the system of scoring for the 2007 PR League to comstock. So instead of each competition winner getting 30 points and the rest of us getting one point less pro rata regardless of how well we might have scored, the comstock system will ensure that the difference in league points will reflect the difference in competition points and be a fairer representation of how a competitor has competed against his/her fellow competitors.

The League score for first place in any competition will be 100 and the rest of our scores will be worked out as a percentage of that. For
example if first place scored 300 and the second & third scored 200 & 100 respectively the league scores would be 1st 100, 2nd 66 and 3rd 33. In reality these scores will go to decimal places I'm sure you get the drift.

2007 Competition Dates

So far we have confirmation of two dates for next year's PR League, these are Bangor on the 2nd - 4th of March and the Southern at East Holme on the 31st or March.

Entry form for the Southern PR Competition is now available for downloading. Get it Here

PR League 2006
