(Note: This is all just fun discussion with no impact at all on future Circuits, because the 17-18 PAPA Circuit points distribution are what they are, and it’s going away once it morphs into the Stern Circuit. )
Thanks for the feedback. I understand now how the team made the decision. Under the premise of “major” being any of the IFPA-defined Majors (IFPA, PAPA, Pinburgh, EPC), I completely agree! And I’d suggest these Major 10th’s are even more than twice the difficulty of a non-Major 10th.
But for those “majors” based on survey results, I’d argue that twice as difficult isn’t as convincing.
One further question to fulfill my curiosity: why only 50% more for 1st then?
