CLASS SPLITS, PRO CARDS, & TROPHIES
Pro & Amateur Splits
*If the number of competitors in a division reaches 12 then the division will be split into two classes, according to height. If the number reaches 18 then there will be three height classes, 24 = 4 and so on.
*If there is more than one class within a division there will be an Overall round where the winner from each class competes against the other class winners. Judges will use a traditional judging system here and place them according to 1st, 2nd, 3rd and so on. The competitor that receives the most 1st place votes, wins the Overall.
One Pro Card (1st place) per class.
