Some of the details will likely change before these rules are put into effect. Overall, however, this new system should benefit S.W.A.R.M. It has traditionally been difficult for our members to gain many points in a year because of the lack of local events. Now, all it really takes is one good showing at an event to place in the national standings. We could even give our members more opportunities to try the six national events by holding more sanctioned competitions. This won't be difficult, as the events could be the same at each competition. The Harvest Classic could be run with the six national events as well as any others of our choosing, but we could also run the six national events at any of our launches, as long as we nofify our regional competition chair.
As with any type of change, there will likely be disagreements along the way. Regardless, I am very much looking forward to this new system and the possibilities it will open up for S.W.A.R.M.!
