What is the change?
You have to level up within 12 months of placing 1, 2, or 3 in a division with 8 or more competitors. This applies to all competitions in 2018.
For example, if you place 3rd in Level 3 at 2018 PSO Northwest on November 2-3, you have until November 1, 2019 to compete in Level 3. After that, you will need to move up to Level 4 for the next 12 months.
This rule replaces the older versions of leveling up requirements.
Why the change?
We had a lovely competitor who offered this suggestion recently, so we’re doing it! Their very smart observation were that competitors performing at the end of a calendar year are forced to move up much faster than those performing at the beginning of a calendar year. This will even it out.
It’s also more simple to explain and understand!
Why so fast?
We wanted to make sure all of the events for 2019 are included, and the deadlines for Triangle and Golden Gate are happening very soon.
What happens if I need to make a change?
Login to your Portal account and update your Level! You can make changes until 1 week after the event registration deadline.
