  37. Wild card points for missed matches will be worked out automatically by the website database application as the season progresses. These points only come into play if you miss a match and are worked out on the basis of the individual angler’s current overall points in the league divided by number of matches in league:
    As a formula:
    anglers current total points / (divided by) / total number of matches in league

    1. 29 points
    2. 27 points
    3. 26 points
    4. 25 points

Some leagues may be desginated as having a 2 point bonus applied each match to all attendees, e.g. if you fish 12 matches you will receive 24 points over league period, if you fish 10 matches you will receive 20 points. This is to encourage attendance and improve match day figures. This point addition will be clearly labelled on the applicable leagues.
