Rounds and Heat / Flight Order

Top  Previous  Next

Depending on how an event is to be handled, it will have from 1 to 4 rounds.  If the event is finals only, then there will be one round.  If the event is to have qualifying rounds, then there can be from 2 to 4 rounds, depending on the type of event.

 

Click Events from the Main Menu Bar and click Add or Edit Event. Now click one of the "rounds" choices at the middle bottom of the screen. If you select Finals Only, then the lower right panel becomes disabled. If you pick Prelims/Finals, Prelims/Semis/Finals, or Pre/Qtrs/Semis/Finals, the lower right panel will apply to the final round.  If you pick 3 rounds, then you will need to enter the number of heats desired for semi-finals and the lower left panel will apply to both prelims and semis.  If you pick 4 rounds, then you will need to enter the number of heats desired for semi-finals and quarter finals and the lower left panel will apply to both prelims, quarters, and semis. Note there is a Heat Order for the initial rounds at the lower left and are defined as follows:

 

Fast to Slow means seed the event with the fastest entry time in Heat 1 and thus the fastest heat is the first heat.
Slow to Fast means seed the event with the slowest entry time in Heat 1 and thus the fastest heat is the last heat.
Random means randomize the heat order.

 

There is a separate Heat Order for the Final Round of a 2+ rounds event and that is at the bottom right of the screen, but the choices are only Fast to Slow and Slow to Fast. Note: If the event is a field event, it will say Best to Worst and Worst to Best.

 

Field Events: If the event is a field event, then it is limited to 2 rounds, but 99% of the time you should select Finals Only for field events because field event score sheets have room for the officials to enter all results for prelims and finals on one sheet. If the event is a combined-event, then it is limited to 1 round.
