    Looking for rules to award prizes in an informal trap competion after the scores are entered. Not Lewis Class. Seem to recall a method called Miller Classes. Can you help?

    Miller Class is a money division system, that is more like either HI-GUN or PERCENTAGE, than it is like LEWIS. It IS a fairer than Percentage, and pays more scores than Hi-Gun ....... i.e; If the PURSE is $600.00 & you are paying the TOP 3 SCORES [ In HI-Gun & Percentage the pot would first be divided into 50%/30%/20% ]: and the [ High scores were 2-100's, 4-99's, & 1-98 ]; in PERCENTAGE each 100 would receive 1/2 of 50% of purse ($150.00 ea), each 99 would receive 1/4 of 30% of purse ($45.00 ea), and the 98 would receive 20% purse ($120.00) - If you are paying the Top 3 Scores by HI-GUN; the each 100 would receive 1/2 of 50% + 30% of purse = ($240.00 ea); the 99's would receive 1/4 of 20% of purse ($30.00 ea), and the 98 would be out - MILLER would look at that there were 2-100's + 4-99's + 1-98 = 7 people to be paid in the Top 3 scores ...... the pot would be divided into (7-%'s: 25-20-17-15-10-8-5). The 2- 100's would share the first 2-%'s = 45% = $130.00 ea; the 4-99's would share the next 4-%'s = 50% = $75.00 ea; the 98 would receive the last 5% = $30.00. The same 7 scores paid in Miller that paid in Percentage, but fairer in that the 98 did not receive more than a 99. ........ (this would be extra complicated if they were prizes/objects rather than $$$ ......

    Lewis Class pays scores way down the pike, with LUCK being a factor in the bottom pay-outs
