The seedings look pretty good to me! Is ranking for the next round based on time or SART-like promotion/demotion? If the former, then this weekend is going to hurt way more than I expected; if the latter, then you might want to break up the groups so e.g. Siri and I meet in the final?

So looking forward to this!

I can answer that one as I helped David (my brother) set up the bracket. The top person in each heat moves up a heat, the bottom person drops down a heat, and the middle two stay where they are.

This isn't perfect in that only those that are seeded in the top 12 have a shot at the overall win, but it's the best we could come up with.

Thanks for the explanation. Yeah, you've got awkward numbers to work with. This sounds great.

Well in the end my rankings were pretty good, I over-ranked a few people, under-ranked a couple of others, but nobody was too blatantly in the wrong heats. Sorry to the older Astridge who I adjusted last minute because she was definitely ranked too low.
