2017 BC 3D Team Selection Criteria Calculation:

 

This method will help alleviate the almost inevitable course discrepancies.

Let us pretend that we are sending a team to Manitoba.  It is a western province, so the amount of money to spend is $6000.00 (previously all the money was divided equally among the Team members after the uniform costs were deducted).  There will be eight Team members.

- Using our current handicapping method, the Team will be chosen at the BC Championships.  Half the money ($3000.00) is equally divided among the eight Team members as a participation allowance (8 x 375 = 3000).  The costs of shirts is deducted from this participation allowance.  If the shirts cost about $80.00 per person, that leaves $295.00 per team member for travel expenses.

- The other half of the money will be disseminated using a merit system or a performance award (for their performance at the Canadian Outdoor 3D Championships that year).  For instance, the top four people who did not make the Team (there may have been 15 others who declared for the team, but we are only counting the top four alternates here using the handicapping system), but were next in line, could also possibly share in the performance $3000.00.  We will use a point system such that a Gold medal win gets 5 points, Silver gets 3 points and a Bronze gets 1 point. Here is how it could work.  Below, we can see that the total number of points won by the Team and the Alternates is 32 points.  If we divide the $3000.00 we have left by the 32 points, we get $93.75 per point or $468.75 for Gold, $281.25 for Silver and $93.75 for Bronze;

 

                                                                                         Partici-

                                                                        Uniform   pation  Performance              = Total

Team Person A - wins Gold (5 points)           - $80.00 + $295 + $468.75             = $843.75

Team Person B - wins Silver (3 points)         - $80.00 + $295 + $281.25             = $656.25

Team Person C - wins Bronze (1 point)         - $80.00 + $295 + $93.75             = $468.75

Team Person D - wins Gold (5 points)           - $80.00 + $295 + $468.75             = $843.75

Team Person E - wins Silver (3 points)          - $80.00 + $295 + $281.25             = $656.25

Team Person F - wins Bronze (1 point)         - $80.00 + $295 + $93.75             = $468.75

Team Person G - wins no medal (no points) - $80.00 + $295 + 0                        = $375

Team Person H - wins Gold (5 points)           - $80.00 + $295 + $468.75            = $843.75

 

1st Alternate – wins Gold (5 points) = $468.75

2nd Alternate – wins Bronze (1 point) = $93.75

3rd Alternate – wins no medal (no points) = 0

4th Alternate – wins Silver (3 points) = $281.25

 

So, those persons who may have been left off the team because of course discrepancies can still earn merit points and share in the money allocated.  This provides several advantages.  First, it helps to alleviate the unfairness of the course discrepancies (orange, green and white peg placements).  Secondly, it gives both groups incentive to perform well at Nationals.  Thirdly, those Team members who some may feel that they may not necessarily deserve to be on the Team have the chance to prove their worth and the Alternates also have a chance to prove their worth.  This also gives ‘up and coming’ athletes a better chance to share the funding. 

 

Now, in the unlikely event that very few BC Team or Alternate athletes make it to the podium, there will be a ‘cap’ of $1500.00 paid to any one athlete.  Additionally, any of the remaining athletes who finish 4th, 5th or 6th will share the ‘left over’ money in similar fashion to the first formula (4th = 5 points, 5th = 3 points and 6th = 1 point).   Here is a scenario to see how it would work for an $8000.00 total pay out for an eastern province Canadian Championship.

 

Since only 8 performance points are earned, the $4000.00 performance money is divided

$4000.00 divided by 8 = $200.00 per point.   The Gold medal winner gets 5 X $200.00 for a total of $1000.00 performance money and $500.00 participation money for a total of $1500.00.  The Silver winner gets 3 X $200.00 for a total of $600.00 performance money and $500.00 participation money for a total of $1100.00.  So, the $4000.00 performance ‘pot’ now has $4000.00 - $1600.00 = $2400.00 left to share among the athletes finishing 4th, 5th or 6th.  So, applying the same formula to the left over money, we have the 4th – 6th finishers earning a total of 25 points.  $2400.00 divided by 25 = $96.00 per point ($480 for 4th, $288 for 5th and $96 for 6th).

 

 

 

                                                                                         Partici-

                                                                        Uniform   pation  Performance              = Total

Team Person A - wins Gold (5 points)           - $80.00 + $420 + $1000              = $1500.00     

Team Person D – wins Silver (3 points)         - $80.00 + $420 + $600            = $1100.00

 

$2400.00 left to share using the same formula for athletes below ($96 per point)

 

Team Person B – 4th (5 points)                       - $80.00 + $420 + $480            = $980.00

Team Person C – 6th (1 point)                        - $80.00 + $420 + $96             = $596.00

Team Person E – 6th (1 point)                        - $80.00 + $420 + $96             = $596.00

Team Person F – 4th (5 points)                       - $80.00 + $420 + $480            = $980.00

 Team Person G – 4th (5 points)                     - $80.00 + $420 + $480            = $980.00       

Team Person H – 7th (0 points)                       - $80.00 + $420                       = $500.00

 

1st Alternate – 4th (5 points)                            - $480                                      = $480.00

2nd Alternate – 5th (3 points)                           - $288                                      = $288.00

3rd Alternate – 8th (0 points)

4th Alternate – 8th (0 points)

Notes:  In general, Outdoor Canadian 3D Championships gold medal scores must be available for at least four of the past seven years to create a handicap.  Categories not meeting this criteria will usually use the handicap of the closest category ‘up’ from theirs.  This is consistent with the Archery Canada method of ‘bumping up’ archers in under-attended categories.  In some cases, this is not equitable, so handicaps were calculated with available scores.  JRTm and JRTf  handicaps were calculated by using the next category ‘up’ from theirs (INm and INf).  Note that handicaps were generally calculated by deleting the lowest score in the past scoring years, averaging the remaining scores and determining the handicap from that information (ideally, there were seven scoring years).
