Black Sheep Squadron has a 6th place, and a 4th place in both Sweepstakes contests they entered. They should be listed with 4 points...or did I miss something in my calculations?

What is the sweepstakes thing exactly? I haven't paid much attention until my OC group got to the top.

Due to the low number of corps, all the events for that day are compiled into one list and the sweepstakes points awarded from there. So, points are awarded overall per day, not per event.

What is the sweepstakes thing exactly? I haven't paid much attention until my OC group got to the top.

The Sweepstakes series was an idea Matt Briddell came up with many seasons ago to track who were the best performing corps of the course of the whole season. It takes time and effort to get your corps in the Top 3 at almost every show. So, I set ~10 shows every season to be Sweepstakes shows; usually these are Saturday events, because most DCI corps perform on Saturdays and we want as many "real" scores as possible to feed into the DCPI scores.

It's really just an informal, bragging rights contest. It has no influence or effect on DCPI scoring or the game mechanics.
