MASTER SCORING

Brent will be using a version of decathlon scoring for Masters.  Athletes Scores will be judged against their gender – 5 year age group records.   I will be doing this for masters division at all my games (Mark McVey).

For an event, the score earned in that event will be
100 x {Distance Thrown}/{Age Gender Record for the Event}
Thus, the event score is the percentage of the record thrown. 

Total Score will be sum of each event score divided by number of events.
Thus the total score is the average of the record set earned by the thrower.  Largest Value wins the division.

Caber scoring is being worked out.

RULES

Rules: This will be a clean games and disqualification can be expected for those that illegally use PEDs as this is considered unsportsmanlike conduct.   Standard Highland Games Rules will be followed. Midwest Rules (NASGA style) will be used.
