Agreed - SMT index would be nice to be the same in all regions.
Doing the SM with ST multiplier would be the best layout. simple math and excel sheet is already mapped this way.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
As for our region solo event points method:
What if we adopt the GLSS method or how SVR does it.
GLSS:
We have a spread sheet where we can just import the names and times. Everything else gets figured automatically.
Each class winner will get 100 points, max possible points is 500 for the year.
Points/Day=100-(900*(Entrants Time-Class Winning Time/Day)
(Class Winning Time/Day)
Using GLSS method keeps us inline with the what the division is doing.
SVR:
SVR has used a straight percentage. They have a minimum of 500 points for last place. The winner gets 1000 and the rest get a percentage of the winner’s time. They do not use the 90% equation that the series uses. SVR’s is the simplest because it is a percentage.
Example:
Winner gets a 42.987 = 1000 points
Second gets a 43.666 = 984 points
Formula: 42.987 divided by 43.666 = .984 (carry decimal over 1000 to = 984 pts)
Both methods would be use best of 5 events is Class winner. Which from my understanding what we presently do. Keep it simple right. I am not sure how much simple this could be.
Year End Trophies:
Same - If
you did at least 5 events, you get a trophy with all your places on
it....if you won your class, it says class champion.

So - I will make a new post on this. I have spoken to 3-4 others and they seem this is a right move. Just which method do you like better for the points? GLSS (this is our division and their method) or SVR - where the 90% rule is taken out?
I will post a direct link to the new forum thread I am posting up. I will also print of the notes I have on this (very simple on the eyes) for the 2-17 BoD/Member meeting and will attach the notes to the new thread for you to review. We really need to keep it simple. If you have a simple way of doing it - more will volunteer to help and more newbies with come and play.
Cheers
