Quoted from jonnyo:
Short answer: Only if you compete in A Division or Classics.
IFPA only recognizes tournament results which are open to all competitors. In other words, you can't hold a tournament with Pros excluded and have it be eligible for wpprs.
The only exclusion exception I've seen are in the case of bars, since they are typically 21+.
Pinburgh, on the other hand, does award wpprs to all because the first day of qualifying is to determine what division you play in on the second day. You don't choose a division up front like PAPA. That said, the points are pretty small - Johnny Modica won B division but overall he was 94th at the end of qualifying, thus he only got a few wppr points.
Please clarify for me.
So, if you qualify in either B or C division you can't earn any WPPR points?
Can you earn points in division A without qualifying?
I'm a novice, but my goal is earning at least a half point or so to make the rankings, rather than prizes. Any advice is appreciated.
