Winter '10 / '11 - Interim Standings - #1

After three snow storms...

Under the 'two-thirds' rule...the best 'two out of three' z-scores are used to compute the interim standings.  After Snow Storm #4...your top three z-scores will be used.

Z-scores are used to standardize or normalize the errors from each storm so at the end of the season...the scores can be averaged.
