This actually pertains to an informal family sporting event, but I think this is probably the best exchange to ask.
Basically we're holding a series of competitions (miniputt, hoop shooting, etc), and the overall winner across all events wins the grand prize.
I need a system for allocating the overall winner.
What I was thinking is that you would give points first, second, third place in each event, and total points across all events wins grand prize.
The question is:
- What is this kind of scoring system called?
- What should the points allocation be? ie. You how many more points should first be than second?
