I have mentioned this in the past at previous D/T's.
Can we mark the Concours class out of 20, please!
I am sure I can't be alone in finding real difficulty in marking 20+ models in each class using the 1-10 system.
You end up giving most of the entry a 6-7 because in the time frame you have to mark in, I find it impossible to split many/most of the entry by a whole mark. Sure, it is not too bad to mark the top 2-3 , and at the other end of the scale the less lovely 2-3, but in the middle order, it becomes much of a muchness.
It also weighs the competition towards the racing, there will be no racing 'ties' but with the 1-10 concours marking system there could be 4-10 same scores!
You could of course still use 1-10, but allow 1/2 point (.5) scoring, but that risks Ralph going all anti-establishment and giving some one a 3.6!!
One further point. In the event of a tie, does the Concours score or racing result take priorty?
