Nope, I'm talking about B. A perfect score would actually be -600 (0 points for hitting both targets dead center, -200 for both bucket shots staying in, and -400 graph points, with no penalties). At least that's how I interpreted the rules.My coach told me after the coaches meeting that we weren't allowed to bring in lazers that said "Danger." He said only "Caution" was allowed, so we ripped the lazer off before impound. It didn't really matter because the bucket shot was 8 M out and 2 M to the right. We'd only callibrated to 8M, so even if we had the lazer, we didn't have the callibrations for something further than 8M in a straight line (I'm guessing the bucket would be something around 8200-8300 in a straight line).
My first shot at the close (6M, 1M high) was 200-something mm and the second 140-something.
My third (8M) was 60-something mm and the fourth 20-something.
16th place. Not perfect, but I'm pretty happy with it since I've had some really bad encounters with devices at state.
Did anyone else see the absolutely cute plastic cup and duct tape pulled back by a string in C division? It was so funny, but I felt bad for that team because FedEx lost their device...
Well, I'm not sure -400s are possible. Are you talking about C division? Because I was talking about B division...Really? I was thinking more along the lines of -400 for first (about 7 cm off each target, two bucket shots- one hit the bucket and bounced, the other went in, full graphs, and no penalties) and -200 to medal. Seems reasonable, but I have no idea.
So basically they gave you the furthest possible targets?Our device was pretty good for any targets shorter than 7 m (and 6 m high), but they of course decided to give us a target at 6 m raised to 1 m and an 8m target. Thus, we missed the first... and the second (we landed about 10 cm outside the target area). Not shockingly, we got 56th
The graph points work out that you start with 400 points, and if you get full credit for your graphs, you lose those 400 points. It's not -400 from zero, it's -400 from 400. So a perfect score is -200 (start with 400 points, lose all 400 for graphs, 0 for hitting the pin on your first shot on both targets, -200 for landing in the bucket twice).Nope, I'm talking about B. A perfect score would actually be -600 (0 points for hitting both targets dead center, -200 for both bucket shots staying in, and -400 graph points, with no penalties). At least that's how I interpreted the rules.
*whistles* Wow. Yes, you are lucky.We must be the luckiest team in the world, because we had no data from 5 meters to 10 meters but we got a bulls eye and 20 or so centimeters off the second target... placing in the top ten...
Good gosh, luck was on your side. Someday, sometime, my team will get a bullseye in trajectory...We must be the luckiest team in the world, because we had no data from 5 meters to 10 meters but we got a bulls eye and 20 or so centimeters off the second target... placing in the top ten...
