A Sweepstakes Contest is run by NYRCBA based on Display Points. All points are calculated on the same basis as ARBA Display points by breed as follows: First place counts as six (6) points; second place as four (4) points; third as three (3) points; fourth as two (2) points; and fifth as one (1) point. The total number of points awarded to an exhibitor is multiplied by the number of specimens exhibited and judged in the class. The grand total is to be the number of points counted in competition. Best of Breed winner receives one (1) times the number exhibited in the breed. Best Opposite Sex of Breed receives one half (1/2) times the number exhibited in the breed.
