This page implements a method for allocating prizes across different divisions – open, rating groups, and “special” categories where eligibility is not linked to rating (e.g. a Best Junior prize). It is modelled closely on the NSWCA algorithm.
Define one or more prizes in each category (use 0 for an unrated group), and paste a Vega cross- or standings table into the text area. The script will search for fields “NAME”, “Rtg” or “Elo”, and “Pts” above a line of hyphens. If you have defined special categories, then you will need to define the players eligible for each category; only those in realistic contention for a special prize need be ticked.
Accuracy of my implementation is not guaranteed!
