- tournaments count in some districts but not all. In districts where tournaments count, results from Age, Open, etc. are included into NTRP calculations.
- there is a cut-off date and it is (I believe) Oct 31. However, in some districts (the ones with "Early Start?) the cut-off date is much earlier... around end of August?

dizzlmcwizzl, I'm curious: why do you consider T (tournament-exclusive) rating "not very helpful"? I feel it's as "valid" as C rating. I agree though that M (mixed-exclusive) is a different animal...
A T-Rating is not very helpful because if you decide to play league, a T rating doesn't exempt you from either self-rating or from a 3 strike disqualification.

Combo never counts towards a C rating because it is a sectional competition, not national, so there is no way to equate the ratings across sections.
