Elite Applications will close, firmly, 30 days prior to race day.

- Your best 3 performances count in the final standings.
- You can only count a maximum of 2 races from your province/region of residence.
TIE BREAKING RULES are as follows. If individuals are tied on points after their best 3 performances, head-to-head competition will determine 1st vs. 2nd, etc. In the event that this does not break the tie, the Mercier Scoring Tables (for comparative performances) will be used to score the individuals' best 3 performances and the combined points total winner will be declared the winner.
To compete in the Open category you must be a Canadian Citizen, Landed Immigrant or have Canadian refugee status.
