Thanks, is there any way to go to nationals if your school is not going? I do not think so, but I was just wondering. I also think that I did the math right to get a score of -17. If I didn't plz let me know. Thank you. Also, how do you get invited to an invitational?
Assuming a 4.5 sec time, 8 cm off, and 33 cm bonus, that is negative 26 (good job! ). There is no way to compete at nationals if your team didn't win 1st (or 2nd based on your states' number of bids). You don't really get invited to an invitational - an invitational is basically a practice tournament that your team signs up for (extra payment).
August's math would be right. (110-33)*(-0.5)+4.5+8*2 = -18
I think you forgot to multiply distance from target by 2.

Either way, -18 is a great score.

Just curious to know what the best official scores have been at state competitions. The two Michigan teams that are going to Nats placed 1st and 2nd in BB at States.

3rd place in Ohio was around -17. 2nd place appeared to be right on with accuracy, with time in the 3-4 range, and with a can bonus of 30-40 cm, but I was just eyeballing. 1st place team I didn't see; they are going to nationals. 8th place also going to nationals; didn't see them.
