    • For  over 50 registrants, one additional Qualifying Slot will be awarded for every additional 10 registrants (6 for 60-69, 7 for 70-79, etc.).
    • If a KBF-NC slot is awarded to a competitor who has previously qualified, then the slot rolls down to the highest-ranking alternate who has not yet qualified.
    • If a slot is awarded to a competitor who is not a KBF Member, to satisfy KBF-NC eligibility requirements he must join KBF within one week of competition or the slot will be retracted and rolled down to the top alternate.
