The purpose of this point system is to provide a uniform method of determining award winners at Mid-America Conference of Clubs (MACC) leather run weekends.
The focus is on participation by individuals and by extension participation by clubs. Participation is any act whereby an individual performs or is involved in an activity designed to earn points for awards for him-self or herself and for his or her club where primary membership is maintained.
Any member of any leather club or a GDI who has completed a registration form from the host club, paid the registration fee for the leather run, and has checked in with the host club as being pre-sent for a leather run.
Any member of any leather club or a GDI who is in attendance at a leather run.
Any member of any club who has total voting rights on all issues brought before the membership and especially has the voting right to elect officers of that club and usually pays the highest amount of membership fees.
Any individual who is not a member of any MACC club or non- MACC club.
Any club that has a minimum of five (5) Full Members and belongs to Mid-America Conference of Clubs and is sponsoring the leather run.
a weekend of camaraderie and friendship which contains time for games, net working, socializing, entertainment, din- ing, and rest. All aspects are to be planned by a host club.
Mid-America Conference of Clubs whose membership is comprised of clubs located in Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Ohio, Tennessee, Wisconsin, Omaha, and St. Petersburg. Each club must maintain a minimum of five (5) Full Members to maintain its voting rights.
Any member of any leather club who is not in attendance at a leather run.
Any member of any leather club who is working towards fulfilling requirements of that leather club to be classified by that club as a Full Member; usually, this is a stage between Associate Member and Full Member.
The club to which each club member gives his or her main re-sources and support; usually but not always a club that is located closest to a club member’s home.
A Full Member of a host club who is responsible for tallying scores, re-cording scores, and reporting the scores to the Full Members of a host club.
Points and Awards
Only Full Members and Pledges can earn points for attendance.
Each Full Member earns two (2) points for attendance.
Each Pledge earns one (1) point for attendance.
The Tally Master will determine the final Attendance Points for each Full Member and Pledge. These attendance points are a part of determining the Club Participation Award.
Distance Points and Award
The Distance Award is for the Full Member attendee or Pledge attendee who travels the furthest distance to attend a leather run. No other attendees of a club are eligible for the Distance Award. However, the points earned by Full Member attendees, Pledge attendees and all other attendees of a primary membership club are counted by the host club toward club participation points which determines the Club Participation Award.
Travel is based on mileage between the city in which the host club is holding a leather run and the city in which an attendee resides.
Points are earned by each attendee based on a percentage of the total miles traveled by an attendee from his or her residence to the leather run site.
Points earned for each mile traveled by each Full Member attendee or Pledge attendee is doubled if he or she rides a motorcycle to a leather run.
The Tally Master will use a reputable and reliable source for determining the mileage and points for each attendee. Such reputable and reliable sources include but are not limited to mileage charts from Automobile Association of America (AAA), Map Quest or a current printed atlas.
The same source of mileage will be used for all distance determinations.
The Tally Master will determine the final Distance Points for each Full
Member attendee, Pledge attendee, and all other members of a primary membership club who are attendees.
This award will go to the Full Member attendee or Pledge attendee who has the highest distance points earned. In case of a tie, the host club will devise a fair method of breaking the tie or opt to present duplicate awards for as many attendees who are tied for the distance award.
To calculate the Distance Points, the Tally Master using a reputable and reliable source of mileage for each leather run attendee will multiply the mileage determined to be the distance for each attendee by .01 and carry the multiplication to two (2) decimal places rounding to two (2) decimal places where needed. This is the Distance Points for each leather run attendee.
Games Points and Awards
All attendees of a leather run may earn points for games.
Each attendee earns one (1) point for each game he or she plays for the primary membership club for which he or she had registered.
Each attendee earns additional points for each first place, second place, and third place which he or she receives for an indi-vidual game.
Each first place winner of a game earns an additional 10 points. Each second place winner of a game earns an additional 7 points. Each third place winner of a game earns an additional 5 points.
If a game requires pairs, the additional points earned for first, second, and third places are split evenly between the pairs participating.
In case of a tie in a game, the host club will devise a fair method of breaking the tie.
The Tally Master will determine the final Games Points for each attendee who participates in games.
Club Participation Points and Awards
Only MACC clubs or non-MACC clubs with at least five (5) Full Members can earn points for the club participation award. This paragraph applies to every calculation and determination of points in this section of the MACC Point System.
To determine the points earned for the Club Participation Award, use the following mathematical calculations for each club at-tending the
leather weekend providing that there are at least five (5) Full Members for a club:
Add together the number of Full Member attendees and the number of Pledge attendees for a club (Answer A)
Add together the number of Full Members (attendees and non-attendees) and the number of Pledges (attendees and non-attendees) for a club (Answer B)
Divide Answer A (Step 1) by Answer B (Step 2) and carry to eight (8) decimal places. (Answer C)
Multiply Answer C by 100 leaving six (6) decimal numbers. (Answer D)
For each MACC and non-MACC club participating in a leather run, add to Answer D the Attendance Points earned for each attendee for a respective club, the Distance Points earned for each attendee for a respective club, and the Game Points earned for each attendee for a respective club. (Answer E)
The resulting number from Step 5 (Answer E) is the points earned by a MACC or a non-MACC club for club participation.
The Tally Master will determine the final points for each MACC or non-MACC club and rank in descending order all clubs.
The club with the highest number of points will receive the first place Club Participation Award. The club with the second highest number of points will receive the second place Club Participation Award. The club with the third highest number of points will receive the third place Club Participation Award.
In case of a tie, the host club will devise a fair method of breaking the tie based on
