Help!
Slope racing MoM Matrix for >12 contestants

Does anyone have a matrix they could share for a MoM slope race competition that goes beyond 12 participants? The current one I have only goes up to 12.

While the current setup is for 3 racers per heat, one option we may need to consider with a higher turn out is moving to 4 racers per heat.

If there is a software program that does this, then great, if not pen and paper will work as well.

TIA for any help!

-Jonathan

Thanks for the suggestion and Link. I downloaded it but am unable to find a MoM style competition. Am I missing something? Any other suggestions?

Look at the f3f sample contest. Or on the web site click on f3f to get a description of how to set up a contest. There is even a video. We have been using Gliderscore for our ALES contests for a year. It works really well.

Thanks Mark, will try that. I've been playing with it and it looks really good, just need to overcome user stupidity.

Jonathan,

I have a Man-on-Man spreadsheet that works with the Excel, Open Office, iPad Numbers etc... spreadsheet programs. It's designed for ALES competition so I'm not sure it is what you're looking for. It allows for 60 competitors, five flight groups and 12 rounds.
Please read the "Instructions" tab as to what it does and does not accomplish.

Scroll down on this page to download it: http://tailwindgliders.com/Files.html#Files

Oh, please feel free to modify as you wish; the spreadsheet is protected but without a password and has many hidden columns. If you or anyone does modify it I'd appreciate it if you'd share a copy of your work.

Thank you guys very much! I've played with all of the programs and files recommended so far and have sent out some PMs/Emails for further guidance. Once I figure out what works best and if the helping parties allow I will post up what I have gone with and how I have modified it if any.

Heaven forbid!

Actually, I'm guilty of more sins then organizing a Speedo race. I've been accused of being anal at times as well. Rumor has it that people like to be scored accurately though so I'm hoping I don't get flogged for it.
