How does the MWPBA calculate Champions Supreme points, 2016?

The number of points awarded for 1st Place at a sanctioned competition is the number of bands or soloists in that contest up to a maximum six (6) points; each place thereafter receives one point fewer per placing through zero (0).

Points are assigned consecutively to the top placings, but only MWPBA member bands and member soloists are eligible to receive these points. Points awarded at MWPBA Champion Supreme Contests are double those awarded at Sanctioned MWPBA Contests.

At some games, there are multiple band events offered in the same grade. The total number of points available at each games remains unchanged.

Here's how the points are being awarded for the 2016 band contests:

Games Sanctioning Points Allocation
Alma Champion Supreme Single points per event (two events per grade for double points)
Milwaukee standard Single points per event
Chicago Champion Supreme Gr4, Gr5 - double points
Gr2, Gr3 - double points per aggregate placing over two events
Minnesota standard Gr5 - single points
Gr3, Gr4 - half-points per event over two events
Springfield standard Single points per event
Wisconsin Champion Supreme Double points per event
Kentucky standard Gr5 - single points
Gr3, Gr4 - half-points per event over two events
St Louis Champion Supreme Double points per event
