Emergency Rule Exemption for 2022 GNCC Senior and Friction Qualifications

The COVID-19 pandemic forced the cancellation of the 2021 GNCCs and many NWTF-sanctioned qualifying calling contests in 2020 and 2021. Therefore, in a special exemption because of extraordinary circumstances, NWTF has changed the qualifying requirements for the 2022 GNCC Senior and Friction divisions.

All callers who qualified for the 2020 Senior and Friction divisions will remain qualified for 2022. They do not have to re-qualify.

Callers who qualified at sanctioned events that occur(red) within the 2021 and 2022 qualifying time frames (essentially Jan. 1, 2020, through Dec. 31, 2021) remain qualified. NWTF will not extend the qualifying deadline.

The final four callers from the NWTF’s 2020 Spring Seclusion online calling contest are qualified for the Senior Prelims.

Qualification requirements will return to normal for the 2023 GNCCs.

Please refer any qualification questions to Matt Stewart, Brian Lovett or Mark Prudhomme.

Mandatory Callers’ Meeting, Roll Call & Order of Calling

  • Roll call will be taken at the callers meeting prior to each contest. Callers must be present at this roll call and meeting.
  • A second roll call will be taken just prior to the drawing of the numbers by the contestants. Any caller not present at the second roll call may be disqualified from the contest.
  • Contestants will draw numbers to determine their calling position.
  • The contestant drawing number one (1) will immediately draw a second number. They will call in both positions. Only the score derived while calling the second calling position will count for score.
  • Please note: If number one (1) is not drawn by a contestant, then a re-draw will be held until the number one (1) is drawn.
  • Do not leave the drawing area until it is determined that a re-draw is not necessary.

Refund policy

  • Contest fees are refundable if the applicant is unable to participate and if notice is given prior to roll call for the registered contest.
