I believe it's.....but I've been wrong before

switch(r, 1, 100, 2, 75, 3, 63, 4, 55, 5, 50, 6, 45, 7, 40, 8, 35, 9, 30, 10, 25,)

Looks good to me, but for those not too familiar with the formula system, that last comma will cause an error:

switch(r, 1, 100, 2, 75, 3, 63, 4, 55, 5, 50, 6, 45, 7, 40, 8, 35, 9, 30, 10, 25,)

So just remove it:

switch(r, 1, 100, 2, 75, 3, 63, 4, 55, 5, 50, 6, 45, 7, 40, 8, 35, 9, 30, 10, 25)

Is there a way to have it remove the lowest score when do the standings?  We are playing 11 tournaments with only the top 10 results counting in the standings.

In your Stats Profile, you'll want to set an Overall Formula to:

sum(top(10, listPoints))

Or, if you don't know how many tournaments you'll play but still only drop the lowest 1:

sum(top(n - 1, listPoints))
