Bill.....this scoring issue/discussion is regarding the US Nats....NOT the world's. The Worlds were mentioned as an example of large contest that followed the standard IMAC scoring and drop methodology.

How bad do you want it?

The NATS is a grind, Phisically and mentally exhausting, in my opinion it should be left as it is.
If you fly well the first three days, then you will have a shot at it on the last day, I'm willing to bet a 12pack that everyone here would love to have that shot. If you run a normal contest and the guy in your class has won every known and UK what chance do you really have? BUT! BUT! they pilot has flown great the first three days, not fair to lose it in the last day. Thats the way the Cookie crumbles.

Earle - that is also a the way I saw it i.e. Nats discussion. But guys were starting to migrate to "I would like to see it 60/40 at the Nats and Worlds". Seems to me I might have mentioned the Worlds as an example of following the standard IMAC scoring a few pages ago - 4 days, regular drop schedule.

No issue with discussion and it is good to solicit input. I was only trying to point out that if the rules are already in place for the World's then there is little point in discussing them.

Just to clear it up, The Worlds format is not part of this NATs discussion. The format for the Worlds is published and will not change.

Back when I was still competing at the NATs the split was 1/3 = 1/3 = 1/3 which made the first 3 days feel like a lot work for not much reward. Six years ago it was decided to increase the value of the first 3 days so it changed to 50 - 25 - 25.
Then it was thought if the participants could earn IRPS that might increase attendance.
So since the first 3 days was run as a legal IMAC contest to make that possible.
Guess it's time to change again.
Think it through, depending on what you chose you may have to give something up

I would like to be in the judging chair on the last day and have control of 40% of your score. I'll think about all the times you were mean to me and wonder how many zeros would be fair payback.BigGrin

Of course, that is hypothetical. I wanted you to think about how much we need perfect judges for the last day if the scoring is heavily weighted.

If someone is running away after the first three days then he should win, and immediately move up.
