--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

About the British Columbia Fly Fishing Leader Board:
The individual points that are recorded on the British Columbia Fly Fishing League's leader board will consist of the competition points that a competitor has earned at individual competitions throughout the competition season, which starts on January 1st and ends on November 10th, 2019 The results of the season will be finalized after that date, and medals and trophies will be presented at an awards ceremony and banquet that will be held on Sunday, November 17, 2019.

Competitors are free to compete in as many competitions as they're able to attend, but their total points on the leader board are calculated based on their 3 best finishes at the river competitions (maximum of 2400 points) and their 3 best finishes at the stillwater competitions (maximum of 2400 points) that are held within the province of British Columbia. A competitor's results from 3 day competitions with both river and stillwater sessions will be added to their total points (maximum of 2400 points) in a separate category. This system allows competitors the opportunity to improve their individual standing by culling poor performances at past competitions, and replacing them with better performances. At the end of the competition season all competitors will start out the new season with zero points on the leader board.

Fish Points System:
Fish Points System for Rivers:
The leader board's fish point system that will be used for river competitions is as follows: All eligible fish will be scored as 500 Point, which will completely eliminate the need to handle the fish and ensure a quick release for every fish caught.

Fish Point System for Lakes:
The leader board's fish point system that will be used for lake competitions is as follows: All eligible fish will be measured in water troughs and scored as 100 points per fish, and 20 points per centimeters.

--------------------------------------------------------

The Formula for Scoring Points:
Here's a breakdown on how many points will be awarded for all future competitions the points and how the new point system works. Please note that the Point Gap increases with each additional day that is added for multiple-day competitions, which recognizes and rewards the competitors based on the increased "degree of difficulty" and effort that's required in order to achieve a top finish at those competitions:.

The formula that's used for calculating the points at a competition with 24 competitors has been set as the maximum number of points that can be awarded at these competitions. A minimum of 12 competitors is required at a competition (A.K.A. a Mini-comp) in order for its results to be included on the leader board.

Competition Levels for Awarding Points:
Competitions will be scored using the following caps on the maximum points that a competitor can be awarded at a competition with 24 or more competitors:
1 day competitions (minimum of two, 3 hour sessions): 600 points for 1st place   ( base formula applies )
2 day competitions (minimum of four, 3 hour sessions): 900 points for 1st place   ( base formula X 1.5 )
3 Day Competitions (minimum of five, 3 hour sessions): 1200 points for 1st place ( base formula X 2 )

Here are the points that would be awarded at the following competitions:

Position      1 Day Comp    2 Day Comp     3 Day Comp
1st place=     600 points       900 points       1200 points
2nd place=    575 points       863 points       1150 points

5th place=    500 points        750 points       1000 points
6th place=    475 points        713 points         950 points
7th place=    450 points        675 points         900 points
8th place=    425 points        638 points         850 points

14th place=  275 points        413 points         550 points
15th place=  250 points        375 points         500 points
16th place=  225 points        338 points         450 points
17th place=  200 points        300 points         400 points
18th place=  175 points        263 points         350 points
19th place=  150 points        225 points         300 points
20th place=  125 points        188 points         250 points
21st place=  100 points        150 points         200 points
22nd place=   75 points        113 points         150 points
23rd place=    50 points          75 points         100 points
24th place=    25 points          38 points           50 points
                 (25 point gap)  (37.5 point gap)  (50 point gap)

-----------------------------------

25 points is used as the base score for a last place finish for all single day competitions, with 25 points being the gap between all of the positions for single day competitions with up to 24 competitors. This format will reward the competitors with a greater amount of points when there's a greater the number of competitors participating at that particular competition, but the base will always remain as 25 points for last place:

Single Day "Mini-comps" (18+ competitors):
1st place=  450 points   
2nd place= 425 points   
3rd place= 400 points   
4th place= 375 points   
5th place=  350 points   
6th place= 325 points   
7th place= 300 points   
8th place= 275 points   
9th place= 250 points   
10th place= 225 points   
11th place= 200 points   
12th place= 175 points   
13th place= 150 points   
14th place= 125 points   
15th place= 100 points   
16th place= 75 points 
17th place= 50 points 
18th place= 25 points

---------------------------

Single Day "Mini-comps" (12+ competitors):
1st place=  300 points   
2nd place= 275 points   
3rd place= 250 points   
4th place= 225 points   
5th place= 200 points   
6th place= 175 points   
7th place= 150 points   
8th place= 125 points   
9th place= 100 points   
10th place= 75 points 
11th place= 50 points 
12th place= 25 points

The new point system for 2016 and onwards will make it a whole lot simpler and require less effort for competitors to calculate their points and understand what's required in order to advance on the Leader Board.

--------------------------------------------------------

Point Gap for competitions with less than 24 Competitors:
The point gaps remain constant regardless of the number of competitors in attendance. The last place person will always be awarded the same amount of points, which are based on the number of days of the competitions: 25 points at a single day competition; 38 points at a 2 day competition; and 50 points at a 3 day competition.

The maximum points awarded for 1st place for 1 day mini-competitions with less than 12 competitors will be based on the number of competitors X 25 points. For example: 10 competitors X 25 points = 250 points for first place and the point scale.

Calculating the points is a very simple process with this formula - with little more effort being required than just a quick glance at the charts or doing your own math.

Point Scale based on number of competitors       1 Day Comp    2 Day Comp     3 Day Comp
1st place at a competition with 24 competitors=    600 points       900 points       1200 points
1st place at a competition with 23 competitors=    575 points       863 points       1150 points
1st place at a competition with 22 competitors=    550 points        825 points       1100 points
1st place at a competition with 21 competitors=    525 points        788 points       1050 points
1st place at a competition with 20 competitors=    500 points        750 points       1000 points
1st place at a competition with 19 competitors=    475 points        713 points         950 points
1st place at a competition with 18 competitors=    450 points        675 points         900 points
1st place at a competition with 17 competitors=    425 points        638 points         850 points
1st place at a competition with 16 competitors=    400 points        600 points         800 points
1st place at a competition with 15 competitors=    375 points        563 points         750 points
1st place at a competition with 14 competitors=    350 points        525 points         700 points
1st place at a competition with 13 competitors=    325 points        488 points         650 points
1st place at a competition with 12 competitors=    300 points        450 points         600 points   
Point Gap for each position after 1st place=        (25 point gap)  (37.5 point gap)  (50 point gap)

--------------------------------------------------------

Point Gap for competitions with more than 24 Competitors:
The Maximum points awarded for a 1st place finish remain constant, but the Point Gap at all competitions with more than 24 competitors decreases (tightens) based on the number of competitors competing at those competitions.

For example; at a 3 Day Competition with 50 competitors the following formula is used for calculating the Point Gap between the positions:
Step 1: 1200 (point scale for 1st place) - 50 (no. of competitors) = 1150.
Step 2: 1150 ÷ 49 (no. of competitors finishing below 1st place) = 23.47 Point Gap
Step 3: The Point Gap of 23.47 points is deducted in order to calculate the points for each position below 1st place

For example: 1200 Points for 1st place - 23.47 Point Gap = 1176.53 points for 2nd place (1177 points*)
* The final calculated number of points are rounded to the closest number, with .5 values being rounded up to the next number

1st Place = 1200 Points
2nd Place = 1177 Points
3rd Place = 1153 Points
4th Place = 1130 Points

14th Place = 895 Points
15th Place = 871 Points
16th Place = 848 Points
17th Place = 824 Points

36th Place = 379 Points
37th Place = 355 Points
38th Place = 332 Points
39th Place = 308 Points
40th Place = 285 Points
41st Place = 261 Points

For me, the quality of a trout is not measured in inches or pounds, but rather by the journey and circumstances that allowed our paths to cross...

Updated...

Please note that we decided to cancel the February "Deep Freeze" competition, due to the extremely poor angling results and unbearable weather conditions that we typically experience when fishing in February, and to encourage participation at the other events.

Thank-you,
Todd
