GPRM points/Tie Breaker Rules

Post by Wheeler » Mon Feb 15, 2016 11:23 pm

Hello I am new to pinewood derby, I have been chosen for Cub Master, this is my first time running a Pine Wood derby and I am learning how to run this new program GPRM. Question can some one explain what the Tie Breakers rules are?

I mean is there four rules A,B,C,D ?
What does Rule (A) Say and so on.

Each of the tiebreaker rules are listed on the Standings tab of the Software Settings screen, based on your selection for Race Scoring Method (Times or Points).

There is also a key listed on the Standings tab of the main screen as well as the on the standings reports. If you see a letter next to a place, then look to the key to see which tiebreaker rule was able to break the tie.

Each of the tiebreakers are also explained in the software's help file.

Thank you

Honest I did look before posting, if it were a snake it would have bit me not once but five times.

I ran test runs like you suggested in Test Mode I did get better results, I am beginning to feel better about running my first Pinewood derby.

Thank you so much for all the help
