2014 Performance Series D'Excellence

The idea and hope for this series is to promote travel, create lasting friendships while adding another level of excitement to our racing in District 1, with an end goal of bringing our district closer together.

All clubs that would like to participate are limited to have only one of their races entered into the series at this time.

Depending on the number of events a racer will be allowed to drop their worst race for any given class or miss one event and still be eligible. (e.g.. six events , drop one, five will count)
If we have four or less all events will count towards the final point total.

Points Awarded
Points will be added up after every event meaning that every heat , every buoy cut etc. will count towards your total at the end of the season.
The idea being it will make every heat count, hopefully this will keep the series closer and also be a more accurate total at the end of the season (showing performance and excellence).

Bonus points to be awarded for.

Attending all events in the series (promotes travel)
Win all heats cleanly in an event , perfect score (promotes performance and excellence ).

For a class to qualify it must make all but one of the race series events.(unless we have four or less then it would have to make all).
For a class to be eligible at an event it must have a minimum of four boats entered.
All classes are eligible including Open Classes as long as they meet the required amount of events.
Classes are not eligible if a boat is added from another class to help make the four boat minimum requirement (e.g. three Nitro Riggers and a Gas Rigger in F Hydro).
There is NO minimum heat requirement for an Event but there is a maximum of five heats.
If a club chooses to run more (time available) then only the first five heats will count towards the Performance Series regardless of the final outcome of the event.

**** There is NO minimum number of events a racer must be entered in to have their points count. If the class the individual is racing in meets the minimum requirements their points will count in the series.
The more events entered the better the individuals chances are.******

Novice class is the only exception, They will be recognized regardless , their only requirement is to have FUN.

The racer with the highest two boat points total at the end of the season will be awarded the Excellence of performance award.
In the event of a tie the points from the racers third highest points boat will be added to their point total in an effort to tally the highest points to award a final winner.

We would also like to have a Sportsmanship award.
The idea for this would be to have everyone who participated in the race series pick an individual who they felt portrayed true Sportsmanship throughout the season.
e.g Helping others at the events , lending equipment , just general helping others have fun.
This would be an email vote sent in to Luc , the name that receives the most votes will be recognized for their outstanding efforts.

Please if you have any questions or maybe something to add contact Luc or myself , we are all ears.

Thanks Tim

Change of plans. The wife wants to take a trip to Niagara Falls as part of our vacation. There is a good chance I'm in.:smile:

Looks like the race will be called the 2014 IMPBA CAN AM as per Terry on IW.
