SCA Points System

HOW ARE POINTS AWARDED FOR STEAK? 

  • SCA Steak Points are tracked and recorded by the Head Cook’s name. The Head Cook cannot have someone else cook under his/her name, and he/she cannot cook on another team. Each Head Cook must be a current member to receive points for an event. 
  • Points are awarded to the top ten placing cooks in an event.  Each team will receive 1 point for cooking the event, so the top ten would look like this:  1st -11 points, 2nd -10 points, 3rd -9 points, 4th -8 points, 5th -7 points, 6th -6 points, 7th -5 points, 8th -4 points, 9th -3 points, 10th -2 points, and all other participants get 1 point. 
  • Points may be accumulated at any SCA event in the world, but the points will applied to your points’ chase home base. For example, if you live in Germany and participate in an event in the US, your points will be added to your SCA Europe points’ chase.
  • Any DQ will still earn 1 point for the event since we are blind judging and would not know who it was.
  • International Regions must have 15 events to get a Points Champion Ring and an Automatic entry into the Final Round of the SCA World Championship.

HOW ARE POINTS AWARDED FOR ANCILLARIES?

  • SCA  Ancillary Points are tracked and recorded by the person that cooks the entries name.
  •  The cook must be a current member to receive points for an event. Points are awarded to the top five placing teams in each ancillary category at an event.
  • Points will be distributed like this: 1st place = 5 points, 2nd Place = 4 points, 3rd Place = 3 points, 4th Place = 2 points, and 5th Place = 1 point.
