First the Changes. All New Seed vendors joining up in 2019 will be asked to sponsor seed places on the General Grow Battle thread. For every 10 seed places...the Seed Test Team will be given Priority Places on 7 of them and we'll use the other 3 for Team Training or Invite places. There will be no prizes on the qualifying legs..but the vendors sponsoring Teams will be asked to make a contribution to a prize fund for the Championship/Grower of the Year final battles. The year end prize fund will be shared out over the General Battle..Outdoor Battle..COB Battle and LED Battle. On Individual Vendor Battles..the vendor will be expected to provide their own Battle Prizes. The General Battle will become the Biggest Grow Battle in the World 2019 with at least 50 Sponsored Team Starts..and any Members who want to join in. All Seed Team Training will also go through the General Battle thread.
