If you're more careful, builds won't bomb nearly as easily. To give some context, all our builds got 1st or 2nd at LISO.
hmmmm, I'm sure proctors for roller were SO good at LISO. They measured one of our rollers wrong...... and I'm pretty sure it's the same proctors for Rustin, we'll have to see
I'm sure my brother and I would've won even without the baseless accusations in your post. Although I agree that some measurements might have been a little bit small (a 33cm jump got measured to 32cm) I think that the way they ran the event was fair for every team. My coach ran this event, and I know as a fact that she would not cheat or manipulate the results to benefit our team. In fact, our second team was almost dq'ed because the student's parents were not leaving her side during impound. If I were you, I might make the measurements just a little smaller/larger to be more within the rules. I'd also stop making sarcastic accusations just because you got tiered at LISO.
By the way, if your team disagreed with the measurements, you didn't have to sign the sheet to confirm the specs of the roller at impound.
According to you, "They measured one of our rollers wrong......". After competing, all partners were given a chance to review all scores and lengths for all aspects of the checklist, and competitors were given a chance to intervene and say something about a mismeasured score, or sign their initials. The checklist was returned to your team in the test packet after competition.
