Little Hollow Team Cup

A club (team) award will be given at each Northern division race.  The award is for quality not quantity and is intended to promote junior racing, club spirit, and unity. At season's end the top three overall clubs will be recognized and awards presented at the Over the Hill Gang race.  Club points will be calculated as follows:

    Men:  "Total men's points" is equal to the number of Northern Division junior clubs entered times four (regardless of the number of competitors representing a club, only the top four placing men from each club will be considered in calculating points).  Among the competitors representing Northern Division junior clubs, the highest placing individual is awarded a score equal to "total men's points" , the second place individual is awarded a score equal to " total men's points" minus one, and so on.  Once four members of a club have been awarded a score, no more members from that club will be awarded a score.  Club men's points are equal to the sum of the four individual points awarded. Club points are limited to finishing competitors there is not an average or handicap score awarded to the clubs with fewer than four finishing competitors.

    Women:  Same as men only change the multiple from four to three.  Once three members of a club have been awarded a score, no more members from that club will be awarded a score.  Club women's points are equal to the sum of the three individual points awarded.

Total club points are equal to the sum of club men's and club women's points.  The weekend series' club award will be given to the club with the highest club points.

Total club points will be accumulated over the season.  Season club awards will be presented to the clubs accumulating the first, second and third highest club points.
