Summary of motions passed:
|Adjustment to rules to clarify how points will be awarded in cases of unbreakable ties.||“In cases of unbreakable ties at a competition, series points shall be awarded equally to the tied competitors taking into account the placements held by the competitors involved (i.e. – if two athletes tie for third place, they will be awarded the point value equal to the sum of points awarded to third place and fourth place divided by two.)“|
|Purchase of 15 handheld timers for use at Difficulty competitions||To purchase 15 handheld timers to be used by judges at our difficulty competitions.|
|Adjustment to rules to specify how the OCF will deal with an athlete with a membership in another PSO who wants to compete in an OCF local event (as the OCF no longer sells day passes)||Athletes who do not reside in Ontario are exempt from the preceding rules regarding eligibility as long as they have a current competitive climbing membership from either their home province PSO, the CEC or a National Federation that belongs to the IFSC. (The purpose of this exemption is to allow athletes from provinces without a PSO or Foreign Nationals an opportunity to qualify for Youth Nationals via their placement in a PSO organized Provincial Championship, as well as to allow athletes from other PSOs in compete in OCF local competitions.)|
