SCORING:

The 4 Sections are then added up for a total score out of 20 possible. In the event of a tie list of all clubs with same score will then be presented for a vote to the currently seated Division Directors.

 ***Special Note***
A Division Director may not vote for any club in that:

1. A club which they are a member OR

2. A club within their own division. If there is still a tie the District Director reserves right to be final vote but none of the preceding is disclosed in the same way judges are kept anonymous at contest.

In the rubric screenshotted below with a hypothetical scenario it shows clubs both Chuck’s as well as Robi’s respectively with 17 points indicating then that these 2 clubs would then be voted on by Division Directors for vote.
