class rules

if you place in the top three of a novice class does this mean you have to move up to the mr? i thought you had to win a novice class before you are unable to compete as a novice again? also if you win say 1st timers class then get to do the mr and place 3rd can you go back to the novice the next year or are you now a mr? i understand the different feds have diffrent rules but this is a local show so can they make up what rules they like?

    I thin you best check with the organisors.

    there is no hard and fast rules, but where's the glory of competeing as a novice if youre better than that?

    Its certainly not a case of being in the top 3 or even winning a novice that you have to move up, as some shows have such poor numbers of competitios and some guys compete when theyre no where near ready, in some shows its easy to win/place - though in others (in my experience) it's bloody hard. I could pass for a Mr - but in reality if I were to have a chance of winning Id have to compete as a novice.

    yeah agree with James , most open shows i see around this end the novive class is a lot better than the Mr class, because the novice class is pretty much open to anyone in the uk and people use them as qualifiers and the MR class is usualy just open to people from that area

    i was 2nd last year in the novice so i am having another go this year,was told i couldnt do the novice again because of my 2nd place but spoke to the show organiser and was told i can do the novice again as i dont feel ready to move to the mr class yet,all class winners go into the overall anyway so if i won i would have a go.thanks for your help

    it can be quiet flexible,especialy in open shows,in efbb if youve qualified for the british you cannot then be a novice/intermediate,i belive nabba is out of top 3 can do novice only,but half the time who checks?
