Excel Scoring

This page is home of HG Scoring Excel spreadsheet.

This spreadsheet will score Heavy Athletics under all rule sets using points.  It will not score under Decathlon scoring (but with a little work, could be easily adapted — so if interested, let me know and I will see what I can do).

This spreadsheet has been in development for over a decade and is finally ready for prime time.

I do not want to make money from this.  If you find it useful and want to make a donation, please donate to one of three organizations:

Celtic Cultures Alliance of the Quad Cities – the 501(c)3 parent of the Quad Cities Games
Donations to Celtic Cultures Alliance of the Quad Cities

Jason and Jane Clevenger’s throwing for the Cure Cause

Special Highland Games – an organization started by thrower Taylor Hurry and myself to bring Special Olympics to Highland Games.  The Facebook page is set up and the adaptation to the rules will soon be added.  We currently are not taking donations as we work to get our 501(c)3 status.  However, when we can accept donations, they will be used for buying Kilts and equipment to do this right!   Until then, if you do not want to donate to my home Games’ 501(c)3, I recommend Jason and Jane Clevenger’s Throwing for a Cure!


Before you use this on games day, test run it.  Especially, the caber section as there a lots of switches and subtle to their use.  Height events pass rules are also variety.
