Criteria to determine the Australian Champions

At last year’s Annual General Meeting an agenda item was tabled from Brad Cavanagh regarding the criteria to determine the Australian Champions. The agenda item read:

Just in regards to talk about the APRA finals going back to full season standings rather than sudden death finals, I was thinking about the following.

Have the seasons standings of money won in the year be converted to points once the finals commence and regardless of the prizemoney at the finals allocate points to competitors at the finals.

Suggestions of points allocated to finals would be

Rounds
1st - 5000 points
2nd - 3750
3rd - 2500
4th - 1250

Average
1st - 10000 points
2nd - 7500
3rd - 5000
4th - 2500

By having this points system in place it would give the leader of standings for year an advantage however still give the person in 15th place a chance at winning an Australian Title.

I believe by having this system in place it would encourage more competitors to compete at regular season rodeos as they can increase their earnings and have more of an advantage at the finals from the start.

I think at the moment once competitors believe they have won enough money in regaular season standings they stop entering as many rodeos but this may change this as it is an advantage to win more money at the regular season rodeos to have more of a lead going into finals.

I think if you go back to the old system it will bugger finals as you most likely will struggle to get the top 15 competitors there but the current system probably cost numbers at regular season rodeos particuarly when competitors have won enough money to qualify for finals.

So I was thinking this may be a solution in between.

[END]

The majority of members present were in favour of this amendment and it was passed on to the Board of Directors for further consideration.

At a recent Board of Directors meeting the following motion was moved by Stuart Frame, seconded by Glen Kent and carried, rule to take effect as of 1st May 2013 (this will not affect the NFR scheduled for 13-16 June 2013).

Amend rule 20.11 to read:

The Australian Championship Title will be awarded to the contestant who earns the most points based on 1 point per dollar won at the Championship Rodeos throughout the season plus the points earned at the NFR as per rule 20.17. Contestants must win money in 2 or more events to be eligible for All Around Titles.

Amend rule 20.17 to read:

For the purpose of determining the Australian Champions the following points will be awarded to the winners and placegetters of the NFR. Points for each round: 1st 4,000, 2nd 3,000, 3rd 2,000, 4th 1,000. Aggregate 1st 10,000, 2nd 7,500, 3rd 5,000, 4th 2,500.
