Are students allowed to impound and use additional graphs/data tables?
Section 2A says they must prepare "up to 5 plots" but 2C allows for "tools, notes, copies of graphs, etc"
Our team usually submits the required 5 graphs but uses a data table with additional information like pin angle, pouch placement, etc.
These additional notes don't translate well to graphs.
At Wright State, additional notes were not allowed (for the first time ever)
This is really surprising to me. I wish you would have come to HQ and submitted an appeal so I knew about it. While this of course is not the place for official clarifications, I feel that rule 2.c. (which explicitly calls out 'notes' as part of the supplies that can be impounded and used) applies to this issue.
I was running my event and didn't know about it until the end of the day (at the awards) and it was obviously too late to change anything.
I can't say it would have changed anything but the kids set the pin angles by memory and basically wasted the first shot at each distance fining out if they remembered correctly.
It was obvious to me that additional notes, if impounded, could be used but not everyone thinks the same way, hence my clarification.
