I had last spring in my first comp. Got second plaze in the throwline cause i managed to hit 3 point targets with both throwlines and got my ropes up also under 2 minuts. Only mist first plaze by one point. Lots of guys got 0 points because they would want to get the 9 pointers.
3 pts for line + 1 for rope; 3 pts for second line + 1 for rope; 4 time points = 12 total
There are lots of points to be had if you understand the rules !
I frequently tell competitors:
1. Read the Rule Book.
2. Know the Rule Book.
3. Understand the Rule Book. (e.g. how to maximize points, with the time limit winding down)
