RaceDay Scoring allows you to configure Top Finisher Categories for each Scored Event that you have set up.
Top Finisher Categories are overall bands which can be used to call out top finishers based on their age, and remove them from their age groups (or let them double dip).
To get started, navigate to the Age Groups/Group Classifications tab:
Select the Event that you would like to create Top Finisher Categories for:
Then click Set Top Finishers:
This will present a popup that will let you configure multiple categories for this Event in this Report.
Top Finisher Settings
Description - The title of this band
Starting Age - The minimum age required to qualify for this band (0 for open, 40 for Masters, etc...)
Priority - The priority of this band. 1 is the highest, the numbers go up for lower priority bands. IE Masters could be 2, Veterans 3, etc...
Score by Gun Time - Optionally score by Gun Time if the Event is scored by Chip Time
Gender - Chose whether you would like participants separated by gender or combined.
How Many Male/Female Winners?
Define how many males and females should be selected into this band
Use the Double Dipping checkbox to decide if you'd like winners to also win their Age Groups, or be removed from them.
Use a Filter to determine which participants from this Event should be included in this Top Finisher Category. You can set things up like the Top Finishers who are in a specific ZIP code for instance, or a Top Finisher Category for those who answered "Yes" to a question like "Are you a Clydesdale?".
Jumping rules tell RaceDay Scoring how to manage top finisher bands when a finisher places in two bands at once.
Should they be allowed to "Jump" to the higher priority band if they qualified for it? Or should they double dip?
RaceDay Scoring also supports the ability to define specific rules to define this. Most commonly this would be set in terms of prize money allotted to each position for each band.
Adding another Band
Use the left hand sidebar to add another band, like Masters or Veteran's.
