Example

Given the following occurring at one event:
  • 3 pipe bands: Band A, Band B, and Band C
  • 3 Adjudicators: Adjudicator 1, Adjudicator 2, Adjudicator 3
  • 2 competition categories: March-Strathspey-Reel (bands A, B, and C) and Quick March Medley (only bands A and B)
... and the following results (as per the adjudicators' direct ranking)

March-Strathspey-Reel: bands A, B, and C (therefore N = 3)

  Adjudicator 1Adjudicator 2 Adjudicator 3 
Band A 112
Band B323
Band C231

The inverted ranking would be as follows:

Band A332
Band B121
Band C213

The addition of inverted ranked points are as follows:

Band A: 8
Band B: 4
Band C: 6

Therefore the MSR prizes are as follows

1st prize: Band A (8 inverted ranking pts)
2nd prize: Band C (6 inverted ranking pts)
3rd prize: Band B (4 inverted ranking pts)
Quick March Medley: only bands A and B (therefore N = 2)

  Adjudicator 1Adjudicator 2 Adjudicator 3 
Band A 122
Band B211
Band C---

The inverted ranking would be as follows:

Band A211
Band B122
Band C000

The addition of inverted ranked points are as follows:

Band A: 4
Band B: 5
Band C: 0

Therefore the QMM prizes are as follows

1st prize: Band B (5 inverted ranking pts)
2nd prize: Band A (4 inverted ranking pts)
