NARAM-39 Contest Factor Computation July 16,1997 1. Add up all the weighting factors for the events at NARAM. If the events differ by division, i.e. if A and B fly different events than C and Teams, you'll end up with two different event WF to use. 2. Determine the maximum number of possible raw points someone can earn during the contest year. Regional meets produce the maximum possible points, so: 80 events WF per regional x 3 Contest Factors per regional x 4 regionals one can fly in a contest year = 960 raw points possible. 3. Divide this number, 960 (or whatever the current WF and CF limits are at the time) by the total NARAM event WF you got in step 1. 4. This is the NARAM CF. (rounded to two decimal places) So for NARAM-39 this year in Tucson, AZ.
