Lower Mainland Regional Tournament Results
Congratulations to all the teams attending the Lower Mainland Regional tournament on Saturday, March 3 at Seycove Secondary School. Over 75 teams registered to celebrate their chosen Challenge solution. We welcomed many new schools to this tournament including Howe Sound Secondary, Ecole secondarie Jules-Verne, Our Lady of Mercy Elementary, and Prince of Wales Mini School. We were pleased to welcome Brentwood College from Vancouver Island this year. Our host school, Seycove Secondary, entered a record 14 teams! Many thanks to the Challenge Masters, Appraisers, and volunteers for making the day an exciting and enjoyable experience. Special thanks to the team managers for guiding their teams through the creative process. Every team is invited to register for the Provincial Tournament sponsored by Envision Financial on Saturday, April 7 at Johnston Heights Secondary in Surrey!
How to read the scores:
The points awarded by the Appraisers are called Raw Scores. Raw Scores are calculated and reported in three sections: Central Challenge, Team Choice Elements and Instant Challenge – these are on the second line.
Once Raw Scores for every team have been compiled, the scores are “scaled.” This means that the team with the highest total Raw Score in each area is given the total possible points for that area. This “sets the curve” for all of the other scores. All other teams then receive a scaled score based on comparing their Raw Score to the top Raw Score.
