Divisions and Rules
This year we have 30 teams racing in two divisions- Competitive and Just for Fun. Teams will play in a round robin format in pool play and then advance to the finals.
In the Competitive Division, teams are split between five pools- A through E. Pools A and B have 5 teams who will race four times. Pool C, D, and E have four teams who will race three times. For the playoffs, the winner of Pools A, B, C, D and E will each get an automatic bid to the playoffs. The winner will be determined by pool play record and in the event of a tie, team fundraising results as of 5pm Wednesday, May 1st will be the tiebreaker. Then, three wildcard teams will be selected from the remaining teams. Wildcard #1 will come from Pools D and E, while Wildcard #2 and #3 will come from Pool A, B and C.
In the Just for Fun Division, we have eight teams racing in two groups- Pool F and G. The winner of Pool F and G will face head to head in the Just for Fun Division Championship in race #60. The winner will be determined by pool play record and in the event of a tie, team fundraising results as of 5pm Wednesday will be the tiebreaker.
