Our club is getting ready to plan next years tournaments. Last year we had a few 2 round slalom tournaments, about 30 skiers. We finished by 2:30, so there's still time to do another event/round. The obvious, and easy, thing to do is add another round. Some members would like to do some sort of head-to-head comp for that 3rd round. I guess I'm just asking for some suggestions and how to put together a fun head-to-head round. Thanks

We did something similar to what you're describing at Waterski Atlanta. Basically, the first 2 rounds were qualifying rounds to make the "Elite 8" in round 3. The top 4 scores made it to the 3rd round. Then of the remaining skiers, the top 4 average scores (between round 1 & 2) also qualified for the third round. Skiers were then seeded by their top score from the first 2 rounds. 8th seed was first off the dock in round 3. The elite 8 battles it out to make the podium.

 

It was fun bc everyone was engaged and concerned with how everyone else skied. It was the most fun tournament I've been to.

Been at one where run order based on rope length ability level rather than true division such that there was a 28 off group, for example. Top two skiers from the first two rounds in each group skied a head to head in round 3, everyone else skied as per usual in round 3.
