2017 World Qualifiers: Open · Teen/Youth
I WILL BE SENDING THE FINAL POINTS TO AUGUSTA FOR WORLD QUALIFIERS (YOUTH/TEEN, OPEN AND SENIORS) ON 12/20. PLEASE REVIEW THE POINTS NOW, AND IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS OR FEEL THERE HAS BEEN A MISTAKE, CONTACT ME RIGHT AWAY. THE TOP 10 IN EVERY OPEN AND SENIOR DIVISION WILL BE QUALIFIED… THE TOP 10 YOUTH, TOP 10 TEEN IN EVERY DIVISION WILL BE QUALIFIED BACK TO YOUTH WORLD.
AWARDS WILL BE GIVEN TO THE TOP 5 IN EVERY DIVISION – THE YOUTH CLASSES WILL NOT BE BROKEN OUT INTO YOUTH/TEEN FOR AWARDS. TIES ARE DETERMINED BY WHO ATTENDED THE MOST SHOWS. IF BOTH ATTENDED THE SAME AMOUNT, THEN THE LOWEST TIME RUN AT THE FINAL SHOW OF THE YEAR (FLAMMS) WILL DETERMINE WHO WINS THE AWARDS FOR THE YEAR.
I WILL BE DOING A SEPARATE FILE THAT WILL INDICATE WHO WILL BE QUALIFIED FOR WORLD SHOWS, AND ANOTHER REFLECTING WHO WILL WIN PLACE FOR AWARDS. IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT EITHER, PLEASE CALL ME AT 772-473-0791 ASAP SO WE CAN RESOLVE IT PRIOR TO YEAR END.

GREAT NEWS! NBHA has decided to once again allow the Top 10 Qualifiers for each division to attend Youth and Open World in Perry in 2018! Any ties for 10th resulted in all being qualified for World.
Top 10 Qualifiers for World in every Open and Senior Division, as well as the 10 Teen (13 or older as of 1/1/17) and 10 Youth (12 or younger as of 1/1/17) have been emailed to Augusta. If there are not ten on the list, it is because there were not enough Seniors of Kids in their division to place a full ten to qualify. Please remember that the Youth is divided into Teen/Youth depending on the ages of the kids as outlined above.
Any ties for awards for the Top 5 in divisions 1, 2, 3 and 5 will be determined by number of shows contestants competed in during 2017. If tied members have been to the same number of shows, the lowest time run at our show at Flamm’s on 12/2/17 determined the winner. The 4D listed in our points spreadsheet is for qualification to World Show ONLY There are no awards given for the 4D in Open, Seniors or Youth. This is an additional division added by NBHA so that more people may qualify for the World Show, but it is not paid out at our shows, nor are awards given.
