  • How are competitors chosen for dividing large groups?

    Hi there,

    I've been to a few larger games by now, and I'm still trying to figure how/why certain people are in one group or another when splitting large contests.

    Is there any particular method or reasoning behind such things? Or are names drawn from a hat, in an attempt for it to be random luck?

    Thanks to any and all.

    Cheers,
    ~Nate

    Usually based on date the entry is received order. If a large contest...After the 1st group in a grade is ‘filled’ ...they would start populating a second group under a different judge.
    If the 2nd group does not fill to the near/ same capacity as the first...the games committee is likely to balance the total load between the two judges.
    Unless there is a written rule I’m unaware of ..there is ( read shouldn’t be )no rhyme or reason as to the competitor allocations otherwise.
    And it’s nothing a competitor should fret about....unless he’d rather have had ‘the other’ judge.
