Digital Competitions:

To encourage more members to enter competitions, there are two digital competitions:

  2. Digital Gray Competition will be only for members who in the previous year accumulated fewer total yearly points than the top 25% of the members who received points. (See Section 1.G for scoring rules.)
  3. The Digital Gray Competition is established to encourage newer members and less experienced members to enter the club competitions.
  4. Members who can enter the Digital Gray competition may also enter the Digital Scarlet competition unless excluded as detailed in section (2) above.
  5. Sometimes a competition subject is assigned; otherwise the competition is open (no limit on subject)
