# Competition Point System – Explained

We will try to explain in more detail here the international system we used at Lyndon Competitions. All the rotations and mathematical tricks are made in an effort to take out the “luck” factor as much as possible. From this point of view the competitors are being split in 3 groups. These groups will fish 3 sectors around the lake. Every group  has 7 competitors. These 7 competitors will compete against each other in 3 sessions. Each game(session) is held on a different sector and at the end of each session the competitors are being put into each group’s leaderboard according to the fish points they accumulated in that session. This gives them a session placing which you can see in the first 3 columns…

 Name Session1 placing Session2 placing Session3 placing Total points from placing Final place Total fish points Keefer Pitfield 1 2 1 4 1 73 Ian Troup 1 1 3 5 2 66 David Nonomura 2 1 2 5 3 56 Hari Klein 4 1 3 8 4 36 Kevin Nonomura 5 2 2 9 5 43 Ionut Cotinghi 5 3 1 9 6 28 Mason Whary 2 2 5 9 7 26 Ciprian Rafan 2 7 1 10 8 43 Jesse Tetreault 2 6 2 10 9 22 Cosmin Muresan 4 4 3 11 10 19 Blair Wilson 7 3 3 13 11 20 Mike Thompson 3 4 7 14 12 26 Mark Pietrowski 3 6 5 14 13 23 Calin Lumperdean 6 4 4 14 14 14 Gedas Cepinskas 1 7 6 14 15 9 Rubin Szauter 7 5 3 15 16 12 Doug Robertson 4 6 5 15 16 12 Jordan McIntyre 3 7 7 17 18 13 Dave Culver 7 3 7 17 19 12 Lucian Holdevici 6 4 7 17 20 7 John Wilson 6 5 7 18 21 16

…the best placing into a session being 1 and the worst being 7. At the end of the competition we take all these placings and add them up, and you can see the total in the fourth column named “Total points from placing”. The perfect score you can have in this column is 3, that means that you’ve placed 1st in every session, and the worst score you can have is 21, that means that you’ve placed last in every session.

When a tie occurs the total of fish points are used to break the tie. If the tie cannot be broken the competitors will receive the same place and the next one will be empty.

Please read the rules for more details.

For Dave P. …..
I came in last so I’m not worthy to go fishing with you…. but I can run into Meaford from the stream and bring you coffee and something to eat…

Sorry Mark, I called you Dave by mistake….. so I won’t be getting coffees for you….. I think I will skip fishing and stay at the restaurant with Rubin instead…

And thanks to both of you for all the laffs…. I had a fantastic time !
