Now the news you have all been waiting for! The Club scores did not have a complicated participation formula this season, instead they are calculated on a simple 3-2-1 score from all the Categories combined:

BO              10pts
KO                4pts
LOST           14pts
WOW          16pts

The Metro Series always attracts good numbers, and despite some hot weather and clashes with other sports this season was no exception. There were 1,243 entries, an average of 103.6 per event. The most popular event was Maylands with 154 entries, closely followed by Sorrento with 148. Casual Members made up 43% of the total entry.

Many thanks to all the setters, and especially to those who prepared new maps or did major map updates: Graham Braid (Bibra Lake and Bull Creek), and Ricky Thackray (Bannister Creek, Ballajura Parklands and Mullalloo).

Heaps of thanks also to the combined efforts of McCTeam and Jack Dowling for producing weekly results so promptly and efficiently.

Thanks to Healthway for sponsoring the Series and providing weekly and Series prizes.
