Maybe setting the winner of each category to 100 and "normalizing" the
scores would reduce the impact of the multis and make the "bench" people
feel more important.

E. g.: W3LPL wins M/M with 10.0 megs.  M/M's W4AN and K4OJ get 9.2 and 8.5
megs, respectively.  W4AN earns 92 points and K4OJ 85.

Further e. g.: In L/P, KN4T wins with 2.5 megs, and the second and third
place FCG L/P guys get 1.5 and .5 megs: 100, 60 and 20 points.  Your top
three L/P guys get 2.0, 1.75 and 1.5 megs: 80, 70 and 60 points.  Your 210
points beats our 180 -- and it was your #2 and #3 guys that got you the win.

Just some food for thought -- but a GREAT idea!!
