I know this may be silly, but would anyone like to share the number of correct terms they have been getting on average? I'm just curious.
In my experience, this is a generally low-scoring event. The high scoring teams have not only cracked the event but put in the time, which is commendable.
The list of terms can change this by a lot but below is a list of the scores from the C-Division list used at the 2010 PA State competition. As Skink said it was clear the teams that put in a lot of work versus those that did not prepare as much for this event. Also don't forget that no matter what your opinion is of this event (I love it) that it is worth just as many points to your team as any other event and thus should get the same level of practice from your team.
