HOW DO YOU RANK?
RANKS AND SCORING EXPLAINED
As a general member, you will be able to gain points in turn for your participation in an MHSFA-officiated event. At the completion of the event, the officials will record every pilot’s best average speeds through the course as a means to determine final ranking for each class in that event. Once the rankings have been determined, each member pilot will be awarded a point value for his or her relative rank for each class.
Points values are determined by the number of pilots competing in each class (disqualified or no-show pilots do not count). A point value equal to the total number of pilots in each class is awarded to the first-ranked pilot, the total minus one is awarded to the second-ranked pilot and so on down the list until the final pilot is awarded a score of one point. In other words, the points equation is Points = (N + 1 - Rank), where N is the number of participants in a given class.
As an example, if six pilots competed in F4 Masters, then the first-place pilot would receive six points, the second-place pilot would receive five points, the third-place pilot would receive four points and so on. Of course, the sixth-place pilot would receive one point.
At the end of each MHSFA season, the pilots who's score are within the top 25% of the membership for each class will be invited to a final event where they will be able to compete against their peers for a grand prize and trophy. This system emphasizes participation in the event rather than just favorable results, which is all part of having fun and not taking ourselves too seriously!
So, now that you know how to get your name on the list and what the numbers mean, head on down to the ranking spreadsheet below and see how you're doing! Check back often, as updates will be made regularly!
