MINNESOTA HIGH SCHOOL RODEO 2003 POINT CALCULATIONS

Clarification for Point Summaries and Spreadsheets

Following the discussions after the 2002 Finals Rodeo, this clarifies the 2003 Point calculations from the NHSRA Rulebook.

The clarifications are reflected in the refined Point Spreadsheet that will be used during 2003.

TOPIC

IMPLEMENTATION

SOFTWARE CHANGES

Eligibility for the Minnesota Finals Rodeo

In order to be eligible for the Minnesota Finals Rodeo, a contestant must have participated in 4  regional rodeos.  Since each day of each weekend rodeo is defined as “1 Rodeo,” two complete weekends during the regular season meet the minimum requirements.  No points need be accrued during the regular season as long as the participation requirement is met.

 

Examples:

·          Saturday and Sunday both at Redwood Falls and Buffalo.

·          Saturday only at the following rodeos:  Albert Lea, Redwood Falls, Buffalo and Alexandria

 

·          No changes made.

·          Since the software doesn’t distinguish between 0 points earned at a rodeo and 0 points accrued because a rodeo wasn’t attended, a manual check of 0 point contestants in each event is necessary to ensure eligibility requirements are met.

·          From a practical viewpoint, this is easy to do.

Eligibility for the Short Go

In order to be eligible for the Short Go during the Finals Rodeo, the contestant must be one of the top 10 contestants in total points going into the Short Go.  This does not mean that the contestant has had to earn points in the first two long rounds; a contestant can have 0 points in an event and still make the Short Go.

 

Particularly in events with few contestants, meeting the eligibility requirements for the Minnesota Finals Rodeo may be sufficient to join the Short Go.

 

Examples:

·          0 points in regular season.  0 points in the first two rounds.  With a total 0 points, contestant is ranked 8th.  Contestant is eligible for the Short Go.

·          0 points in regular season.  0 points in the first two rounds.  With a total 0 points, contestant is ranked 12th.  Contestant is not eligible for the Short Go since contestant is not one of the top 10 contestants in that event.

 

·          No changes since the 2002 Finals Rodeo.  The spreadsheet ranks the contestants by points top to bottom.

Eligibility for the National Team

In order to be eligible for the National team in any event, the contestant must participate in the Finals Rodeo. 

 

Examples:

·          Contestant has 140 points entering the Finals Rodeo, but chooses not to participate.  The contestant does not enter the Finals Rodeo, does not enter and “Vet Out” or “Medical Out.”  The contestant is not eligible for the National Team.

·          Contestant has 100 points entering the Finals Rodeo, participates on the First Go and is injured and unable to earn more points in any Finals Rodeo round.  The contestant does not have a doctor’s approval to participate; he is released from further obligation to compete in the Finals Rodeo.  The contestant is eligible for the National team.

·          Contestant has 0 points entering the Finals Rodeo, participates in all the rounds but does not earn any Finals Rodeo points; the contestant ends the season with 0 points.  The contestant is eligible for the National team. 

 

In this last example, oddly enough, if there are only 4 or less contestants in an event, this contestant could join the National team.  Whether the contestant actually goes to the Nationals is dependent on the contestant and his/her family.  Nonetheless, the contestant is eligible to join the National team.

 

·          A separate column titled “Eligible National Team” was added. 

·          The Points Secretary will be responsible for changing the “No” entry (automatically assumed) to a “Yes” entry based on Finals Rodeo participation.

 

Eligibility to Get Finals Average Points

Contestants are eligible for Finals Average points if two conditions are met:

1.        The contestant participates in the Finals Rodeo.

2.        The contestant earns qualified scores or times in that event during the Finals Rodeo.  Contestant does not have to earn points in an event to qualify for Finals Average Points.

 

Examples:

·          Contestant has some points entering the Finals Rodeo.  The contestant has no qualified times or scores during the Finals Rodeo and, of course, earns 0 points during the First, Second or Short Go.  The contestant is not eligible for Finals Average Points.

·          Contestant has 0 points entering the Finals Rodeo.  The contestant makes one or more qualified times or scores and earns some points in the First, Second and/or Short Go during the Finals Rodeo.  The contestant is eligible for Finals Average Points.

·          Contestant has some points entering the Finals Rodeo.  The contestant makes one or more qualified times or scores but earns 0 points during the First, Second and/or Short Go during the Finals Rodeo (i.e., the contestant places 11th or above).  The contestant is eligible for Finals Average Points.

·          Contestant has 0 points entering the Finals Rodeo.  The contestant makes one or more qualified times or scores but earns 0 points during the First, Second and/or Short Go during the Finals Rodeo (i.e., the contestant places 11th or above).  The contestant is eligible for Finals Average Points.

·          Contestant has some points in an event, but does not enter the Finals Rodeo.  The contestant is not eligible for Finals Average Points.

 

·          The spreadsheet was substantially changed to ensure that both conditions are met.  The software ensures that the contestant:

1.        Has entered the Finals Rodeo (Eligible National Team = “Yes”)

2.        Has qualified times or scores during the Finals Rodeo (Number of Catches/Rides > 0)

 

Determination of Averages

If a contestant is eligible for Finals Average Points, the traditional Finals Average Points system will be used:

1.        The lowest cumulative time or highest cumulative scores from three qualified times or scores are awarded first.  All “three catch,” “three rides,” or “three times” will be awarded in order of increasing cumulative times or decreasing cumulative scores.

2.        Then, the lowest cumulative time or highest cumulative scores from two qualified times or scores are awarded.  All “two catch,” “two rides,” or “two times” will be awarded in order of increasing cumulative times or decreasing cumulative scores.

3.        Finally, the lowest cumulative time or highest cumulative scores from one qualified times or scores are awarded.  All “one catch,” “one ride,” or “one time” will be awarded in order of increasing cumulative times or decreasing cumulative scores.

 

Contestants who fail to have a qualified time or score are not eligible for Finals Average Points, regardless of the points carried into the Finals Rodeo.

 

·          The spreadsheet was refined to show qualified times or scores during the First, Second and Short Go.  Those times or scores will be manually loaded from the judges sheet and posted after each round.

·          The spreadsheet automatically counts qualified catches, rides or times and adds them together.  A sorting protocol counting down from 3-to-1 qualified catches, rides and times will be sorted by the sum of qualified catches, rides or times to determine the Finals Average Points winners.

·          The spreadsheet automatically assigns 0 points if the contestant fails to met both eligibility requirements.  If contestants are qualified to earn Finals Average Points, the spreadsheet automatically leaves the cell open to enter points.
