If you have any questions, now is the time to ask. These are the rules that we have followed for years, so there are no changes that you need to be aware of.
You need to be a member to be included in the season points.
Benefits.....2.10 SCCV Membership. Current year SCCV membership is required to count in the series (Ice Time Trial, Time-Speed-Distance Rally, Autocross) as well as the Overall Points for the Year. To be considered in a series you must have a current SCCV membership by the second series event you compete in within the series in question (one series event waiver). Points earned in series events prior to the last event you competed in without a membership do not count towards the series total.
With SCCV membership, you get benefits such as earlier registration for an event, a reduced entry fee, and discounts at some local vendors.

Meeting points for overall and for the series....
Worker points....1.10 Meeting Points: 3 points per General Meeting attended. It is the member’s responsibility to ensure that they have signed the roster for the meeting. General Meetings are held on the third Tuesday of each month unless otherwise specified.
1.11 Series Meeting Points. General Meetings count for points within each series. The meeting directly before the first and directly after the last series event plus all the meetings during the series will count toward the series points. Exceptions: If the meeting prior to the first series event, or after the last series event, is in a different calendar year, or if there are no General Meetings between the last series event and the Year-End Banquet, then the points for the meeting in question will not count for the series. At the end of the year series Meeting Points will be added onto the Points Driver/Class combination with the greatest number of points (see section 5.0 Points Tabulation)
But, you can get driver points and chair/co-chair points at an event....1.20 Worker Points (WP): 3 points per day to count towards series points if they are not driving. The worker has the responsibility of informing the ‘Points Keeper’ for event of your car number and class to record your worker points. This must be done prior to the next scheduled event. Worker Points and Driver Points cannot be awarded for the same event day.
Which events count?1.30 Chairperson Points (CP): 11 points per event, regardless of the number of days, to count towards series and Overall points. If driving at the event the Chairperson must take the points in the same class as the day of the event. If they are not driving, then they must inform the ‘Points Keeper’ for the event of the car number and class to record the Chair points.
1.40 Co-Chairperson Points (COP): 6 points per event, regardless of the number of days, to count towards series and Overall points. If driving at the event the Chairperson must take the points in the same class as the day of the event. If they are not driving, then they must inform the ‘Points Keeper’ for the event of the car number and class to record the Co-Chair points.
50% rounded up is the min; all events count (max).
So, if there are 10 events in the autocross series, then you must drive in at least 5 (min) and all the events will count (max). If there are 11 events, the min would be 6 (11/2=5.5 rounded up to 6).
2.21 Minimum Number of Events (MIN): You must register for the minimum number of events required for the series in which you want to compete. For the Overall Points for the Year there are no minimum requirements. The minimum number of events required for each series will be announced prior to the first scheduled series event.
2.22 Maximum Number of Events (MAX). Prior to the first series event, the total number of events that will count in the series will be determined. This number may be equal to, or greater than, the minimum number of events required to compete in the series. This will allow the Driver or Navigator to ‘drop’ low event scores due to a missed event, etc. Calculations for series Points will take the highest point values for the number of events up to the maximum number allowable for the series. The events that are dropped will have the lowest points score; the driver’s class will not be taken into consideration.
