How to Figure your HI 3

As you know, when you enter a Horseshoe Tournament you are entered with your HI 3 Percentage. To some pitchers this sometimes is confusing. Let's see if we can explain how this works. For Most Horseshoe pitchers who play under 10 tournaments a year this is how you figure it out. Your HI 3 is the 3 higest tournaments within the last 12 month period. If the date is August 15 1997, you only go back 12 months to August 15 1996. Also if you have only played one or two tourney's/leagues (Events) in a 12 month period that ave. of one or two events is your HI 3. Tournaments and Leagues are called Events and your 3 highest events are your hi 3. See example # 1 below.


Example # 1 (if you play less then 10 tourneys for a 12 month period)

Let's say today is 10 June 1997

PLACE DATE SHOES RINGERS AVG .NOTES .
HAMILTON OPEN 5 MAY 96 300 150 50.00 pct out of date THIS 50% TOURNEY IS NO GOOD BECAUSE IT IS OUT OF THE 12 MONTH PERIOD
BILL LARSON MEMORIAL 16 JUN 96 350 160 45.71 HI 3 #1 .
KEENE OPEN 20 JUL 96 326 102 31.29 pct lower .
MASS STATE 11 AUG 96 358 135 37.71 pct lower .
NEW ENGLAND CHAMP. 2 SEP 96 312 98 31.41 pct lower .
HAMILTON OPEN 4 MAY 97 262 110 41.98 HI 3 # 3 .
KEENE WARM-UP 8 JUN 97 268 121 45.15 HI 3 # 2 .
If today is 10 June 1997 your HI 3 would be the adv. of 391 total ringers diveded by a total of 880 shoes witch would equal 44.43% your HI 3

Now what about the Horseshoe Pitcher who plays over 10 Tournaments a year. If you play more then 10 tourneys in a 12 month period you will ONLY base your HI 3 on those last 10 tournaments. See example # 2.

Example # 2 (For those who play more then 10 tourneys within a 12 month period)

PLACE DATE SHOES RINGERS AVG .NOTES .

Did anybody get confused?? Don't worry the New England Statistician Jim Hanson will give all New England Tournament Directors your HI 3s before the 10 day deadline of the tourney you enter.
