Re: Machines B/C

For those wanting an example graph, here's a link to one: https://www.sciencenc.com/wp-content/up ... -Graph.pdf

Note the disclaimers -- if your local ES has different interpretations of the rules, then I can't help you. :( The rules are unfortunately vague, especially 5.e.i.

Re: Machines B/C

Getting 41+ in practice Last time machines was a nats event, top score was about 98.1, so I'd expect about 44 as the top device score The scoring formula weights time more heavily this year iirc. I would not expect more than exceptional teams to be below 30 seconds in B and 40 seconds in C (with ef...

Re: North Carolina 2020

https://app.avogadro.ws/invitational/duke-university-c/ Duh. Thanks. Fairfax and RCHS seem to have fallen a bit. Lake Braddock (VA) did well. What I'm most curious about is NCSSM's stacking. Their B team did pretty well. I certainly don't think they were unstacked, but it's not a typical stacked sc...

Re: North Carolina 2020

duke results 1. Enloe (95) 2. NCSSM (102) 3. Syosset (133) 4. Langley (173) 5. Lake Braddock (197) Quite close results. Judging by Syosset's position, I'd attribute it more to a decline by Enloe. Agreed. Anyone have the link to the full results? I can't seem to find it on Duke's (poorly designed) t...

Re: Machines B/C

I've started to make the graphs but the rules on data are kind of confusing. "i. 2 points for including data spanning the possible mass ranges" How would you collect data from the specific masses? Check the Machines section of the NCSO website for an example of what will be considered an acceptable...

Re: Your Daily Random Comment

/Mini Rant/ I know a lot of people like Excel, but as someone who uses it a lot at an advanced/niche level for work, I find it extremely frustrating. I would never pay money for such a piece of trash, and I think it only became popular because of its novelty and Microsoft's platform. /Mini Rant Over/

Re: My coaches restricting resources

This is obviously a terrible idea and your coaches should have the ability to figure out why pretty easily. I don't know what else to say. Feel free to show this post to them if you think it'll help. Yeah, exactly this. Part of being good at an ID event is making and learning to use a good binder. ...

Re: Help Adjusting to Div. B

Thanks all for the help! I'm going to make sure the tests are on the more difficult side then. It also didn't occur to me that Div. B kids still have many years of scioly ahead of them to learn and continue working on their events, so a hard test won't frustrate them as much.

Help Adjusting to Div. B

I'm looking for some advice about the differences between Division B and C. In my career as a competitor, I only competed in Div. B for one year and I didn't take it very seriously. As an event supervisor, I have only written for Division C. However, this year I will probably be writing more for Div...
