Rankings have been updated. Just an FYI - a new rule went into effect on January 1, 2013, and your ranking is now based on the average of your top 4 runs. All scores not in the top four are thrown out.

Some of you may have noticed that the post-NAOC rankings were available on Sunday evening, the evening of the last NAOC event. Well, this was in large part to my assistant of the last year, Allen Hubsch of LAOC. I sent Allen the NAOC entry list ahead of time, and he assigned the rankings ID to that file, doing all of the fiddling ahead of time to resolve different versions of names and clubs, so that the data was ready to go as soon as the results were ready to go. OK, we missed one name difference that I know of, but having the rankings ID in ahead of time, so that the rankings were posted quickly, was pretty cool! Thank you, Allen.

Future enhancements will include an FAQ section, so feel free to suggest questions related to rankings which you would like to see answered.
Please note that the Official 2010 and 2011 End-of-Year rankings, which break down the rankings by OUSA membership and assign the Gold, Silver, & Bronze awards level, can be found in the Archive.
