Points Based System
The points based system works as follows:  1 point per session attended.  Bonus point if all 4 sessions attended.  It is ok if participants do not attend all 4 sessions however there will be penalty deductions for example:
1 Class attended:      1 point awarded but 3 points deducted = Score -2
2 Classes attended:  2 points awarded but 2 points deducted = Score 0
3 Classes attended:  3 points awarded but 1 point deducted = Score 2
4 Classes attended:  4 points awarded plus 1 bonus point = Score 5
There will also be opportunities for bonus points during the sessions! 
At the end of the tournament, points will be tallied for each nation and divided by the number of nation participants to give a nation average.  The nation with the highest average will be crowned the winner! 
.Full name used at registration must be displayed on Zoom for all sessions attended. This will help to make sure you are awarded the correct points!
