If a team has not fished in 10 or more events with the GHBT their rating will still be calculated but will be considered Wild.
Ratings are calculated by using the points totals per tournament. For every five tournaments fished the worst event is thrown out and the remaining points scores are averaged to determine the teams overall GHBT rating. Ratings will range from 80 to 100.
A team is first rated after having fished a minimum of 10 events or two seasons with the GHBT. If the team does not advance after 10 events (typically two seasons) with the GHBT the rating will be calculated based on the past 18 events fished (typically three seasons including TOCs). The past 18 events will be used from then on to estabilish the GHBT rating.
Once a team achieves a GHBT rating of 96 or above the team is considered "graduated" to Advanced status. At this time the team is no longer eligable to fish in the GreenHorn events and must move on to any Advanced Series. A team with a Wild rating that is 96 or above may be contacted by league directors for potential early graduation to the Advanced Series; although it is not required that the team move to the Advanced Status. If a team Advances early and during their first Advanced Season averages only 90 points or fewer the team may enter back into the GreenHorn Status for the following year pending a review by the league directors.
At the end of each calendar year GHBT ratings will be calculated and the League directors will e-mail the current standings for GHBT ratings. Teams who have graduated to Advanced status will be notified at that time.
Ratings will be calculated within the GreenHorn Teams to determine when a team is ready for Advanced Status.
Ratings will be calculated within the Advanced Teams to determine who is the #1 rated team in the Forest Lake Area.
Do you think you have what it takes to be the #1 rated bass angler in the Forest Lake area?
