February 2016 Meeting
After much discussion, a motion was made to adopt a new format for the 2016 Championship Show. Motion was second. Motion passed.
Non Pro Class for illustration purposes:
• All contestants must be qualified having shown 4 times at one ACHA affiliate or 8 times at any combination of ACHA affiliates, or be in the top 10 for the season. Contestants must be in good standing.
• Each contestant will be required to pre-enter as in the past.
• Class will run 1st go on designated day 1 and 2nd go on designated day 2.
• Entry fee will be paid for each day / $1,000 added money each day.
• Payout on each day will be based on our regular weekend payout system.
• The Champion and Reserve Champion will be determined by the highest combined score from both days.
In short, every cutter will have a shot at the purse and added money on both days, a shot at the championship, and an overall lower entry fee to play.
