This means that if a competitor competes and places at competition A but is not a member, they have until the start of competition B to register and if they do they can receive back the points earned from the place standings at competition A.

All finalists, those who compete but do not place 1st-4th place will receive participation points. Participation Points are per competition event at each competition. So a competitor that places 5th in both forms & weapons, receives 2 participation point values.
