High Lonesome 2020 Lottery

An interactive, transparent, and reproducible design for the 2020 High Lonesome 100 lottery. Code by Garret Christensen, volunteering in exchange for whiskey. Thanks to Caleb for a great race and wanting to do things transparently. If any other RDs are interested in running their lotteries transparently, I'd love to talk!

The lottery is implemented via R Shiny apps here.

The code for it is all in this repository that you're looking at.

  • Lottery.Rmd implements the lottery
  • fakedata.csv and similarly named files are data for testing, and will be replaced with the real data as soon as it becomes available
  • HL2020data.csv is the real data, from UltraSignup and verified by the RD
