Answer: There are "user fields" that are for this exact purpose on the "Edit Competitor Info" screen, just put an "N" and a "X" for the other.
Then when you run the individual awards specify the "N" or "O" or any letter on the Selection Criteria screen. Then when you run the Team Awards, ignore the user field.
My meet has 2 sessions, should set it up as one meet or two?
Answer: If competitors from one session compete against the competitors in the other session in anyway (individual or team) then you need to set it up as one meet and use the session field
in the "Edit Competitor Info" screen to differentiate the sessions for reporting, etc. If there is no intra session competition, then you can set it up as one meet or two. If you do set it up as one meet, make sure there are no duplicate competitor #'s between the sessions.
