Some NOTES about the overall points:

2.  Participation points are awarded with placement points. Participation points are awarded everytime a YRS member competes in an event. 5 points are awarded for each event. For placement points, the best 5 out of 10 races will be tabulated at the end of the season. MORE points the better!! This gives all YRS members a chance to get a trophy or medal at the end of the YRS season.
