I'm wondering about how the issue of a scoring tie is handled in IDPA. I also shoot Cowboy Action matches and the SASS powers that be just changed from Rank Point scoring to Total Time scoring. Under Rank Point, each stage is a mini-match and shooters are ranked by time, (low to high) and numbered 1 to last. Person with the lowest points is #1, etc. Ties are broken by total time. For a six stage match, the perfect score would be a 6 where a shooter won all six stages.
Anyhow, there is an issue in the event of a tie score, a remote but real possibility. For example, the biggest match (Winter Range) has 750 shooters in 30 some categories. The issue of how to break a tie has not been decided by SASS.
How does IDPA handle it? I've hunted through the rule book with no luck finding anything.
