Team Prize Setup
You can use this form to setup prizes for the league winning teams. If you have been using the program to track the fees collected by the team, the program can automatically fill in the dollar amount you have collected to date. Alternately you can manually enter your amounts if you have been keeping track of them separately. You will find a report on the Reports Menu which calculates the prizes based on the value selected on this screen.
Prizes Based On:
You can either have the prizes based on the teams position in the standings or the number of points the team has earned. Click the option to make your selection.
Prizes At Splits:
If your league has two or more sessions, you can award prizes for each session. If your team only has one session, then the prizes will cover the entire season. Click the option to make your selection.
If you have been using the program to track the fees collected by the team, you can click on this button to have the total automatically filled in for Total Money Available. You setup the tracking by setting up an extra statistic named FEES and entering the number of payments entered each week as you enter scores.
Total Money Available:
This is the total money collected by the team. You can either have this filled in automatically using the Collected button or you can manually enter your actual amount.
League Expense Money:
This is the amount of the available money that will be needed for league expenses such as secretary and treasurer salaries, banquet expenses, etc.
Money Available for Prizes:
This is the amount of money available to award as prizes.
Team Prize Money:
This is the amount of the available money that you want to use for prizes. You may want to use all the available money or you may choose to set aside money for special prizes such as High Scores or other noteworthy achievements.
Available for Other Prizes:
This is the amount of money that will be left after the team prizes are awarded for other special awards such as High Scores or other noteworthy achievements.
Difference Between Each Position:
This value is not required if prizes are based on points earned rather than position in the standings. If prizes are awarded based on a team's position in the standings, then this is the dollar amount between each position. For example, if this value is $10 and the first place team prize is $150, then the second place prize will be $140, third place will be $130, etc.
Round Prizes to Nearest:
If this value is $0.01, then the prizes will be rounded to the nearest cent. If it is $1, then the prizes will be rounded to the nearest $1. If you are awarding prizes and you want the team prize awards to be in increments of $10, then you would set this value to $10. When you are rounding, you may find that the total money awarded may be slightly higher or lower then the available prize money. If you want to be certain that the total money won equals the total available prize money, then set this value to $0.01.
