Goodly? Is that a thing now. I think that's a thing.

Also I'll be honest I missed the highscore wins part on the first read... didn't make sense till I went back and read it again

What is the importance of the last sentence of 4. e.?
"One of the ways that I believe people express their appreciation to the rest of humanity is to make something wonderful and put it out there."

Presumably if you wanted to start your scrambler at an angle that would allow you to do it. Whereas before It wouldn't have been very easy.

I feel as though I am ignoring an important detail. Why is the obstacle on the far left?

It's... not an obstacle.

Then it is a marker?

Why do they not include the bonus in their example at the bottom.

Because truthfully it is a bonus. Teams can chose to ignore it and run it pretty much like last year. Or (and more logically) a team can get one good run in without going for the bonus, and then go for the bonus on the second run.

I'm getting more confused. Doesn't "going for the bonus" merely imply that the car: 1. pass to the right of the can 2. stay within the track 3. Trigger both photogates (if used) ??
Since the can is halfway down the track, doesn't this just mean that the car went a little over half way? There were only one or two cars that didn't do this last year at our event.
Most of the competitors were more likely "going for under a meter" which blows "going for the bonus" away.
