  • BONUS POINTS – an extra 5 points per event (not per stage) entered and attended will be added to the mushers total
  • 6 STAGES PER CHOSEN CLASS need to be completed for inclusion in the 2015/16 AMWA CHAMPIONSHIP (NB: if certain classes fall below the min of 6 stages, ‘for ex. BKJ & DV’ ALL the stages will count towards the final Championship for those classes.)
  • The mushers best results from the season go towards the championship, so not all stages count depending on the number of rallies that year.

6-9 stages, 6 stages count towards the championship.

10-12 stages, 8 stages count towards the championship.

13-14 stages, 10 stages count towards the championship.

15+ 12 stages count towards the championship.

 

  • The Championship Co-Ordinator will collate the mushers best results and present them at the CHAMPIONSHIP PRESENTATION which takes place at the last AMWA rally of the season.

Example: The mushers best (ex) 10 out of 14 stages are totalled – Ex. Mr Hare (normally gets 1st place at every rally) decides he’s doing well and only enters a few, Mr Tortoise enters all the events and is rewarded for this by having higher points at the rallies where Mr Hare hasn’t attended – plus gets 5 bonus points for every event attended  –  The new system will still reward the fastest teams but will also encourage and reward attendance.
