Points are awarded for an athlete’s performance each
week leading to awards at the end of the season. The point scoring
system is as follows: - 1 point for competing, 1.5 points for
equalling a personal best and 2 points for achieving a personal
best. The four best events each week are counted for each competitor
and the points accumulated over the season. At the end of the
season, the four lowest scoring weeks are subtracted from the total.
This system, which has been used for many years, is fair in that it
allows for enthusiastic competition in both the track and field
events we conduct throughout the season.
Wet Weather & Extreme Heat Policies
In the event of wet weather,
we will make every effort to continue the normal program if the
condition of the grounds permit, unless the conditions become
extreme (e.g. lightning). If in doubt, please visit our web site for
up to date information.
Our Extreme Heat Policy is,
“When the temperature at 2.00pm, or any time throughout competition,
is equal to or in excess of 40 degrees Celsius,
will be cancelled.”These policies are for the safety and well being
of our members and visiting athletes.
