KWSR Grand Prix 2017?
It’s in your hands
We need a new Grand Poobah to take over this season-
Mark did all the results-
The Grand Prix a good event. It helps us all to be aware of who our club-
But if it’s going to continue, someone else is going to have to take it over. It's going to have to be someone else's turn.
So you’ll know what you’re getting into, here's what being the Grand Prix Grand Poobah entails:
> Choose the schedule, select the races.
KWSR supported races are preferred, naturally.
> Choose a point system. Continue with the current one, if you like. It's worked very well.
> After each GP race:
> Scan through the results, line-
> Assign the correct points to all of them
> Add those names and points to your Season Standings chart. (We already have an Excel spreadsheet that totals them up for you.)
> Publish the updated standings on the club web site.
> That's all there is to it.
Now, before you say, "That's easy!" like Sir Robin at the Bridge of Death in Monty Python and the Holy Grail, look over last season’s GP final standings.

Also, there are age groups to aggregate, new members to assimilate, expired members to eradicate, and controversies to ejudicate(i.e., when someone has a birthday and jumps to a new AG, what happens to their points from their old AG? Hmm? Hmmmm?)
The Grand Prix Grand Poobah is a job that requires enthusiasm for the task, a passion for stats, and a good eye for detail. If you have all that, you'll actually enjoy doing it.
If any among you feel like taking this on, please step forward. Otherwise, we will not have a GP season. Drop me a line at KWSRclub@aol.com if you have any interest or questions.
