Re: Ratings are approximate
Lower PDGA ratings is in the best interest of the players, not higher because it forces them up faster. In fact, we round down so that a player at 914.9 has a 914 published rating that doesn't force them up until they are ready. Likewise, players truly have to earn that milestone 1000 rating. For those under 900 ratings, the probability is one out of six rounds will be more than 50 pts below their rating. Using most of their rounds includes their inconsistent play which is part of their normal performance. If you determine your average gas mileage for the year, it will include some low mileage fill-ups when you did town driving and some great mileage fill-ups where you drove from pump to pump on the highway. Your annual MPG combines all parts of your personal driving pattern.
