    I am looking for some ideas for scoring. I am putting together a match. This is not IDPA or USPSA, so we are not applying those rules and guidelines.

    Some stages will be on steel and shot for time. While other stages are shot for score within a set period of time.

    If we wanted to make each stage equal in value, whether shot for time or score, is there a way of assigning an equal value to each. Meaning can you assign a score or percentage on a stage that is strictly shot for the best time? I realize that in doing so the fastest shooter would be the base line. So is there a way to make a timed event equal in point value or percentage when compared to a scored event.

    Your idea about the percentage is probably the best way, and is how IPSC does their set time stages(more or less). Count up the points scored and figure out a percentage of the top shooter for each stage, then add up all the percentages at the end. For the steel stages just do it the same way but use the time instead of points and figure out everyone as a percentage for that stage, then addem up.

    Big cowboy matches are often done with rank scoring.
    Score each stage separately by time, points on target or whatever else matters.
    Rank the shooters in order 1, 2, 3... 15, etc., for each stage.
    Total up each shooter's rank numbers.
    Low total wins, each stage has been weighted equally.
