The Rank system. On a points basis, where only IM distance or longer counts for points. Its not a knitting club. 1 point per IM finish. 1 bonus point for doing the extra hard ones (norseman, lanzarote and [but only if you get in by the honourable route, qualification] hawaii). 2 points for double IM finish. 3 points for Triple, 5 points for Deca. 1 bonus point for every time you win a shield or set a record (above). 1 bonus point for becoming "reasonably competent" (i.e. the first time you crack 12 hours). 1 bonus point for becoming "outstanding" (i.e. the first time you crack 10 hours). -1 point for a DNF (its not a quitting club). Note that if you miss cut off but still finish the course (even if it takes 20 hours) then you still get the point.

If I had realised the points system I would have entered the double next year to jump 2 places
Five points for a deca?
It appears I am aspiring to become Semen.
I guess that's the circle of life or something.
Always read the small print people!!
I seem to be missing Semen?
I think CRAB is a Commander as well, with 3x IM finishes, 2x Shield, 1x Lanza, 1x Reasonably Competent.

Oh and I got a shield once and broke 12 hours... so that's 13.... Candy you need to "seasonally adjust" the points system otherwise I'll catch you up.
