Order Of Merit
Order Of Merit
The Order of Merit (OOM) competition continues to be popular and 2020 is the third year that it will be conducted.
It is conducted across the monthly events, commencing with our January event and concluding with the November event. OOM Prizes will be distributed at our final event of the year in December.
Prizes will be awarded to the winner of each age category, with an additional little gift for the overall winner.
Each month points will be awarded to all participants; firstly on a sliding scale down to 30th position with 200 points going to the winner and 11 points to 30th, followed by the allocation of 10 points to all other participants on the day. A further 30 points will be awarded to each of the four grade winners each month.
- Apart from determining the 4 grade winners each month, no count-backs are used in the allocation of points in the OOM.
- For example if two players should record the same "best score", on a particular day, then those players will share the points allocation for 1st (200) and 2nd (175), rounded up or down to the nearest whole number, i.e., both players, in this example, would receive 188 points.
- The minimum points that any player in the top 30 will receive is 11.
- Members must play at least 6 monthly events to be eligible for the annual prizes with their top eight points only being counted towards the the final OOM results.
Positions on the OOM table will also be used to select players to represent Hume Vets in the annual VVGA Teams Event in September.

71 to 75 Age Group - Kerry Bayly, from Kooringal, is the winner with 517 points (from only 7 counting rounds).

However, Terry was unable to do this, finishing just 19 points behind Kerry in the end.
76 Plus Age Group and Overall - Mario Silvio, Northern, led this category from the beginning of the year and never looked like being caught. Mario finished with 974 points to finish well clear of the second placed James Fernandez with 662.
