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.
Event Weight Factor;
1/4A HD 20
A SRD 13
C ClAlt 20
E DELA 29
D BG mr 26
A RG 20
1/2A SD mr 12
SpSc 20
R&D 36
___
Total 196
Regional Raw Point status;
80 WF x 3 CF x 4 meets per yr = 960
960 raw pts/N-39 196 WF = 4.8979591
Round this to two places.
The NARAM-39 Contest Factor will be 4.90
