I'm sure everyone is wondering what the delay is posting finals for Anderson, and the prelims for Mesa and Richmond. I think I have been checking the GSSF website several times a day. Anyway, decided to call down there and see what the story is. Spoke with Donna, 4-29-05 at 0955 hours. She said Julie will be in Monday and the final scores for Anderson should be up the first part of the week. She also said all the scores had been entered for both Mesa and Richmond, and they will be up sometime next week as well. As to the prizes themselves, as most had hoped, are the same as before. I read a post that suggested it may just be stickers and keychains. Not true. What I did not understand fully prior to calling was that the odds of getting a prize will actually (probably)GO UP. It is entirely dependant on how many shooters are entered. I guess before there were large ranges of numbers that decided if there was to be a "B,C, and D" class. Now it is stricly numbers that are divisible by 4. After the top 10 in "A" class, of course. That's my understanding for what it's worth. She also confirmed that Julie and Dave have been transfered to Advertising/Promotions. Several new people will be joining the GSSF staff. Last but not least, they are ACTIVELY trying to add more match dates, hence the delay on the Glock Report vol. 1. They expect it to be out the middle of next month. Before anyone accuses me taking something "hook, line, and sinker", I am willing to take people at their word, until proven otherwise. Time will tell.

Did you have the impression there would be more than one gun awarded in one category? For example, amateur civilian used to have three classes and three guns; some have wondered if there will now just be one gun award per category. All strictly speculation!

My take on it, (that and $5 will get you some coffee..), if there were enough shooters (old rules) for A,B,C= 3 guns and 27 cash awards, the same is true now. Take it another step, to 200 shooters, that would be A1-A10 stay the same, but now #'s 11-200 would have a 1 in 4 chance at 47 prizes total, instead of only 20 under old rules. Guess we'll all find out next week.

All I'm hoping for is $60 to cover the cost on those snazzy Sevigny sights. Oh, and a new GLOCK wouldn't hurt either! ;e gman67

Are you saying that the prize winners will be only those who's ranking places them in a place # divisible by 4, e.g. 12, 16, 20, 24, 28, 32....etc, vs. random numbers from 11 thru X? Thanks for the report.

The way it was explained to me by someone that knows probably more about GSSF than anyone except maybe the staff is that it will be a random computerized drawing from #11..... and 1 in 4 will win something. Not just a number divisible by 4.

another comment on that overall, I agree that one in four will win something, but as I understand it, those who finish in 11th or lower do NOT have a one in four chance. the top ten are guaranteed their cut if there are 100 entries in Am Civ, there are 25 prizes total - so the first 10 get a prize, then the remaining 90 split the other 15 which is a 1 in 6 ratio if there are 200 entries in Am Civ, there are 50 prizes total, and 190 entries split the 40 left over after the top ten which is a 1 in 4.75 ratio of course I dont know anything, and could be proven totally wrong, we'll know for sure once the final results are posted

Well, this has always worked in the past: Looks like no updates today! There! Now we should see updated scores any minute! Every time I've made some post like this before we had updates very quickly!
