Time to change the rules on Novice eligiblity in SA

7.10     Eligibility to enter Novice Races
An  athlete  can  only  enter  a  Novice  race  if  he/she  has  not  won  a  novice  or  
open  event  in  that  distance  category.    The  three  distance  categories  are  0-
200 metres, 201-600 metres and 601 metres plus

This means who ever wins the Womans Bay Sheffield this season with the prizemoney on offer and the Womans Camden Classic are still eligible to run in a Novice event in SA.
Equal Prizemoney should equate to equal conditions.
Time for the rules to change.
Where equal prizemoney for Womans Gift and Open Gift are the same , Conditions need to be as well.
What does everyone else think?


Agree Whispers. It is something that has been discussed already. Pretty sure something will be introduced to ensure a novice event retains a genuine novice feel about it.

My preference is if a female has won a prize of $200 or more for winning a women's race in the category, she should be ineligible. Eg: I think winners of the Women's 70m & 120m at the Bay Sheffield should automatically be ineligible for a novice sprint.
