Lewis Prize Allocation System
The GSSF League uses the “Lewis” prize allocation system to distribute awards as equitably as possible.
During a League competition, where there will be more than one match, the scores are totaled and “averaged” at the end of the 3-match series for each entry shot. If a shooter shoots in only 2 of the 3 matches, their scores are totaled and divided by 2 for each entry shot. If they shoot in all 3 matches, their highest 2 scores are totaled and divided by 2 for each entry shot.
The result is one final score for each entry, which is then listed in the overall order in which they finished. The overall list is then divided into thirds (i.e., the top one-third is “A” class, the second one-third is “B” class, and the third one-third is “C” class).
Plaques will be awarded to the top competitor of each class. In a group of 15 competitors, the winners would be numbers 1, 6, and 11. If the number is not divisible by 3, such as 22, then divide the number by 3 and award plaques to numbers 1, 8, and 15, leaving the largest group in the “C” category.
