2017-GTCCC-NFRCC-Entries-Master update

Here is a breakdown of the NFRCC competition vs GTCCC. I am also attaching a
spreadsheet of the participants of the competition, showing the scores.
How to read the scoring: 3 judges were chosen, at random of the 4 present (2 from each
region).

For example: 80=8.0 85=8.5 90=9.0 etc the score announced 25.5 out of possible 30.
(although the decimal does not show on the score sheet)
1 st , 2 nd , 3 rd place awarded in each category and HM of approx. top 10% in each category. See
the attached full spreadsheet
