Awesome report as usual, I only wish I could see it all in action.

When are we goin to start seeing video?
I'd love to see an entire routine from start to finish from the semi's or finals at one of these events just to know the entire process and to see a pro at work.
Maybe even pdfs of rules and scoring sheets to know more about the process.

The rules and score sheets are available on the SCAA's website (all). Below are the ones that apply to scoring:
And also:

Counter Culture Coffee arranged for three videocams to record the competition. Cindy Chang hopes to produce a DVD of the event, but funds for editing is an issue. Any hobbists video editors willing to take it on?

Dan...nicely done...and for us less experienced "HB's", the tamping and dosing descriptions were edifying...and varied to be sure!

Question:
Why do pros prefer to use the stockfleths instead of a leveling device for their tamp?

My brother-in-law is a photographer and offered to snap a few shots at the SERBC. Since his time was very limited, he decided to go for a more artistic edge than documentary style. Below is one of the better examples from Lem's performance in the preliminaries.
