Club ladder/points alternatives

Hi guys, |
I'm interested in how various clubs around the country run their annual points ladders.
We, the North Shore Surfcasting Club, use a straight weight=points system. Minimum fish length of 50cm for eligibility, no points multipliers (as they do at the Nationals for example). Recently we introduced catch & release eligibilty where photographic evidence along with a club member witness are required.
The IGFA introduced length records recently. Length mats are available through the IGFA or through the NZ Fishing Competition. I know that several of our members have started making noises into whether we should be looking at a length points system, with species modifiers similar to the Nationals weight modifier. There's some working out to be done as to how it would work but I'm quite interested in the idea.
I am also wondering if this is a way forward for clubs to be able compete nationally, outside of the Nationals? It could become part of the NZACA, have a unified points structure across all species and could be awarded annually at the Nationals.
I'm keen to hear how your club runs it's ladder and your thoughts on a National club ladder.
