A couple of people have asked about a "strike line" for "in it" teams at the tournament.

 

There isn’t a strike line per se beyond the 80% guarantee.  That said, the goal will be to have all “in it” teams receive judges in the top 50%ile, a goal that has been reached in recent years.  That said, I currently have about 30 fewer rounds of judge commitment than I had last year.  As a result, I can’t “guarantee” that there won’t be a judge placement in the range 50%-55% - very rare, not the goal, but not impossible.
