Ranch Rodeo Points System
Points 1-15 are given out in each event for both performances. Points are awarded with the fastest time getting 15 points and working down thru the times so that the slowest time gets 1 point. When there is a tie, the points for the specific placing will be added and divided between them. Points from each performance are added together for each team to get a total over all winners. The team with the most points wins the all around average. The team with the most points in each specific event wins that event.
