2014 Four Seasons Chase - FINAL STANDINGS ( Posted Mon December 15 )

The following are the final standings for the 2014 Four Seasons Chase after 11 events. For an event that was missed, the average of the three slowest times on the applicable course is added to an individuals time. The other adjustment is for those who get less than the full number of controls for a course, their average leg time for that course is used to extrapolate their total time at that event for all controls. For any DSQs (lost punch card etc), you will receive either your finish time or the penalty time, whichever is worse.

Only those eligible (missed 3 or fewer events) will be posted here.

Scoring for Club Award--Relay event November 15th ( Posted Wed November 12 )

With clubs gearing up for the relay this weekend, here is the scoring format for the CLUB RELAY AWARD. All teams entered will earn points toward their club. Take note--clubs need not have an official executive at this point. (i.e. Halifax Hustlers)... just choose your closest club to "join" for the day, and we'll have a little fun with this.

Clubs to choose from: Colchester Streakers (Truro area), North Shore Adventure Club (Wentworth-Amherst area), Halifax Hustlers (Metro), Annapolis Valley Orienteering Club (Valley), Four Seasons Chase (Valley), Cape Breton (CB), and Orienteering New Brunswick.

Here's how you earn points for your Club:
-each club team entered = 5 points
-each club participant = 5 points
(so a 3-person team would give the club 20 points, while a 2-person team would get 15, and a one person team would get 10)

-overall placing:
-1st place team = 100 points for club
-2nd place team = 90 points for club
-3rd place team = 80 points for club
-4th place team = 70 points for club
-5th place team = 60 points for club
-6th place team = 50 points for club
-7th place team = 40 points for club
-8th place team = 30 points for club
-9th place team = 20 points for club
-10th place team = 10 points for club

-most spirited club = 20 additional points added to your total

Let the trash talk begin!!
