POINTS  for NQ Events.

Magnetic Island Open is on the 8th & 9th of March and Lavarack  is on 12th & 13th of April.

With all NQ events there are points allocated to winners from all grades if you are registered for the points.  You will just have to pay your $10 to a NQ rep at your first open and all points are then worked out.  As well as receiving points for placing you will also receive points for travel.   You will receive 1 point for every 100 km travelled.  To try and promote players to travel to opens, especially the smaller clubs.  So if you travel to Magnetic island from Mackay that will be 8 points ( thats 4 points for the 400 km to and 4 points for the 400 km back ) on top of any points if you place in the event.  Below is a chart that shows the points allocated for places for different NQ events.   Nomination for Magnetic Island or Lavarack are available here at the club or on the NQ website.

This is a step  by step instructions on how to book in for a competition.To the left you will see the One Golf  logo, click on that.Your username is  the last four digits of your golf link number, ( not using the 00)  Eg if your number is 4092200013 your username is 13.Your password is the first four digits of your date of birth. Eg. if your DOB is  9th April your password is 0904.  If that doesn’t work it means   I did not have your date of birth so your username will be 0101. If neither of those work phone the club, I have probably put in  an incorrect DOB.Your will then get a box up to tell you to change your password, so do that using 0101 as your old password.Once you are in the site go  into  “My Details “and  update any details that are incorrect or add, DOB, email address etc.To book into a competition click on   bookings in the red box on top .  You are then at the  events page.  Click on Nov ( 2013) and all the events for Nov will come up.Anything that is open you can book in for.    Click on open, and the timesheet will come up.Click on the box with your preferred time on it.   You will come to the timesheet with your name already on that time.If you don’t want to add any other names just confirm that time and that’s it.  You can then go into another competition if you want and do the same.If you want to add other players to your group, go into the time you require and  go to the search section, in one of the boxes put in the person you want to play with.  Just start typing there name and a list will come up and pick the player from that list.  you can add another  3 players to your group.  Once you have the name, click on the small boxes next to each name then click confirm.  All players are now in that time slot with you.You will notice a small x  under each name.  That allows you to delete the name if you wish.  Any of the other players can also delete there own name only in that group.So get on there give it a try and let me know if you have any problems and I can go through it with you here.
