I have a few questions about gold points. I have been

looking at the gold points web site.

How are the number of points given out in any tournament

determined? I noticed that the two CA tournaments and the

one AZ tournament have hundreds of points awarded to various

teams, and some of the other tournaments have as few as two.

If there are 90 some odd teams in gold division, and 64

qualify, it looks to me like a team can go with as few as

15 or so points. Is gold easier to qualify for nationals

than "A"?

How many teams go to "A" nationals? And do they all come

out of the various qualifiers?

Why doesn't "A" use points too? I understand you have to

win most "A" qualifiers outright to go to nationals. Is

this true?

Just wondering
