The selection of the original team will be based on the Standard Points Allocation criteria (1.1 -1.6). In the case of ties, and for selection from the official Reserve List, the criteria detailed in the Count Out Points Allocation (2.1 – 2.3) will apply.
1. Standard Points Allocation
a. Attendance and participation at Monthly games
It is recognised that the most important aspect of being a Nomad is to play in as many official monthly games that are on the Western Province Nomads calendar, as possible.
Therefore the allocation of points for doing so is:
24 games over the preceding 24 month period before closing date for Nationals Entry = 5 points
22 or 23 games over the preceding 24 month period before closing date for Nationals Entry = 4 points
20 or 21 games over the preceding 24 month period before closing date for Nationals Entry = 3 points
18 or 19 games over the preceding 24 month period before closing date for Nationals Entry = 2 points.
12 to 17 games over the preceding 24 month period before closing date for Nationals Entry = 1 point
b. Attendance at Previous Nationals
Attendance at previous 3 consecutive Nationals = 1 point per Nationals to a maximum of 3 points
c. Service to Nomads Golf Club Western Province
If you are a serving member of the current Committee = 1 point
d. Attendance at Committee Sanctioned Away Games
Seaboard tournament =- 1 point
Andrew Mentis Golf Day = 1 point
e. Attendance at AGM
Actual attendance not including apology at the most recent AGM, i.e., AGM before selection of the National team = 1 point
1 point per day (max 2 points)
2. Count Out Points Allocation
The count out procedure only comes into play with those on the Reserve List in the case of ties.
a. Service to Nomads
For serving as a Past Captain with W.P Nomads – 1 point.
b. Attendance at Other National Tournaments
Attendance at Botswana, Zimbabwe or Swaziland Nationals – 1 point for attendance at any one, and a maximum of 2 points for attendance at 2 or more a maximum of 2 points.
c. Captain’s Prerogative
The Captain at his sole discretion may allocate the following awards:
To a non-committee member who has contributed to Nomads over and above of what is expected – 1 point.
To a Member who has an upstanding history of playing monthly games but has been unable to participate in the required number of games as in 1.1 above due to serious injury/illness.
