I think as one of the other threads mentioned there should be ways to hold adjudicators accountable. Having not even been within 3000 miles of the LSC areas, I have to say I think some of the complaints made against Mr. Horsfield are valid. Here is my explination.... All else being equal there should be no correlation between draw order and placing (this would equate to a correlation coefficient of 0.00). the first band draw finished first, all the way through the last band finishing last there would be a correlation coefficient of 1.00. If the first band drawn finished last, all the way through the last band draw finishing first there would be a correlation coefficient of -1.00. -0.15 to 0.15 is usually considered neglible, as you get to -0.3 to -0.5 and 0.3 to 0.5 you get a significant correlation. Here is are the correlation coeffients for the LSC areas Championship (Horsfield) -0.50 1st Section (Horsfield) -0.36 Horsfield overall -0.36 2nd Section (Pritchard-Jones) 0.02 3rd Section (Pritchard-Jones) 0.23 Pritchard -Jones overall 0.18 4th Section (Newton) 0.01 Obviously there are many other variables in effect, but statistics show that this weekend, when Horsfield was adjudicating, there was a definite trend towards bands draw later placing higher.
