We have a friendly competition to compete for age group awards at the end of our racing year. As you participate in races, you report your results online. You will receive points for completing races, and you will receive bonus points according to how well you do in each race. At the end of the year, points are calculated and awards are presented at the banquet. The race results are posted online and updated monthly at each Y location.
