1) When you look to the judges as the reason that you lost, you will continue to lose. The reason is quite simple....you cannot change the judges and you ignore the easiest thing to change, namely the quality of your flying. 2) When we consider who is doing the best job (the judges or the contestants) we see that the contestants usually fly between 60% and 85%. Contestant error rates are, then, between 15% and 40%. When we look at the judges scatter diagrams after full TBL processing has been applied, we see that the judges scatter is usually less than +/- 3/4 of a point, or approximately TEN TIMES BETTER THAN THE COMPETITORS. Our judging system (Raw numbers from the judges) and (numerical processing system = TBL) is working great! Ask Mike Heuer or your assigned director to verify this. 3) Consider yourself lucky to have received this tip on how to win. Your judges are 10 times better than you are and they are backed up by a good data processing system to eliminate what few errors that they do make. GO PRACTICE! Bert Berrong Brighton, Colorado
