EPIC RACING POINT FUND –  The point fund is funded by event participation and marketing for other sources.    If a class did not support an event with at least 3 race boats, the event is required to pay only the boat fee and not required to pay the class fee.  The point fund payout is a percentage based on total class participation at all EPIC events; all boats that participate in EPIC are eligible for the points fund payout.   Point Fund Payout schedule:  1st place 30%    2nd place 25%      3rd place 20%     4th place 15%    5th place 10%
