We don't have the resources to share all raw scores with all teams but you can ask your coach to ask us if there's only a couple of events.
If you're using Chalker's spreadsheet (which it looks like it from the rankings sheet), isn't all you have to do copy the master scoresheet, change the column that they reference, and resize the columns? I know it breaks a few of the macros, but if you do it after all the scores have been inputted I think it works.

I'd guess that you were tier 3'ed for not having your loading block aligned with the centerline; in my experience (which admittedly amounts to a single instance of proctoring) teams tend to get tier 3 for this a lot.

I'm not actually in bridges but from what my team mates told me is they hooked the chain onto the handle of the bucket not where they were actually supposed to hook it onto

Your teammates did it correctly. You were supposed to hook the chain on an s hook which in turn hooked on to the bucket. I'm not sure if I'm interpreting you correctly, but we didn't get knocked down a tier so I believe we did it right. If they didn't hook the chain on right, I believe they would have been stopped before they even got to test as the event supervisor made it very clear what things they didn't allow.

Was there an attachment to the handle as well? I don't think the proctor said they had a violation but that's the only reason I could think that would bump us down so much.

For a first year school,
Pacific Trails did okay, considering they only participated in 18/23 events. They got mostly ribbons, and they got 2 medals total. Here are some known placings
Green Generation-16th
Meteorology-16th
Reach for the Stars-19th
I can try to get more specifics if you'd like-I don't go to that school, but i have plenty of friends there who can help you out.
Edit: I forgot to mention that PTMS has 4 teams, 3 complete ones and one incomplete one. The placings represented here are only one of the teams.
Thanks :). Do you have any idea which two events they medalled in?[


Sorry I just saw this, the two events were ELG and bottle rockets.

Haha, I've done that once or twice in the past and it still took quite a bit of time because it isn't just the raw scores. You have raw scores and tiers and ties, too. And in most cases (for the written events), the raw scores are meaningless without the high score and the median and/or mean. So we if we send out the raw scores, we send out the high, median and mean as well. Oh and then needa send it out to each coach If anyone's got a solution that doesn't take hours, I'd love to hear it.

What school are you from? I don't see any 25th team with an efficiency of 2300.
