Each contest that the team enters earns the team 5 participation points regardless of the number of categories the team enters.
There are three ways to earn team points:
- In all three categories (the Ribs, Pulled Pork, and Loin) teams are awarded placement points for a top ten finish. 1st place earns 10 points, 2nd place earns 9 points, and 3rd place earns 8 points and so on until 10th place earns 1 point.
1st place Ribs = 10 points
5th place Pulled pork = 6 points
3rd place Pork Loin = 8 points
- Five (5) bonus points are awarded to the teams that wins the Grand Championship and the Reserve Grand Championship.
The GBA contest year begins in September each year. For the 2015-2016 season, there will be three (3) contests that award double TOTY points. For 2015-2016, double points contests will be in Griffin (Sept), Walton Co (March) and Hazlehurst (May).
At the end of year GBA Banquet, usually in August, the Team of the Year is recognized as the team with the most points accumulated throughout the year. The GBA awards banners and cash prizes to the Top 10 teams and awards banners to the 11th place to 20th place teams from the just completed contest year. In addition, the GBA awards a Team of the Year banner to the top 5 teams in each of the 3 categories. Recognition is also given to the 2nd through 5th place teams in each category.
