@ OB.3 and others looking into URL tags…I had posted this information last year about this time. Took me awhile to find it.
I had got the chart for the 2015 season from Ryan Koenigs. See the attached chart he provided. The chart shows the number of applicants and tag winners by the number of preference they had.
It looks like 63 spearers (out of 537) had 5pts going into the 2015 drawing, and they didn't get a tag. So if you believe you’ve got 6pts already, you’re likely only 1 of 63 spearers. As long as you applied for a tag (not just a point) or not part of a group (with members with less points) you’ll be a lock for a 2016 tag on URL’s.
If I'm reading the chart correctly for the 2016 season, there will be at least 427 tags left for the spearers going into the drawing with only 5 preference points. It also looks as if there could be a possible 643 applicants with 5pts for the 2016 season. So if you only have 5pts, you’ve got 66% chance of getting a tag for this season.
If you only have 4pts, you will not get a tag for February 2016. Unless a lot of spearers with 5 or 6 points opt out of the drawing.
After the drawing results are in for 2016, Ryan will likely email that information out. I’ll post it once he does.
