I had what we call a "fat finger." At the end of the fifth heat yesterday, I keyed in the second run scores and posted the results. After our head judge Jason Rothmeyer had a conversation with Ricardo Paterno last night, they realized something was wrong with him being so far down the list. Today I reviewed my worksheets and realized I missed entering scores for everyone's second run in the fifth heat. Crap. The results have been revised and corrected. Basically, the only things that have changed are that if you had a ripping run in the fifth heat, you might be in the cut now. One of those people is Ricardo. The other two are Arnost Ceral and Robbin de Wit. The fully revised results are here. For anyone that we published as in the cut yesterday but is now bumped out in the corrected results, we are still keeping you in the cut. Sorry for the mix-up. I haven't had time to complete our iPad scoring system for runs format. It only works for jams, so on this one, I was using the old caveman set-up of 10-key, pen and paper, and Excel. After nearly 20 years of doing this, I finally had a huge fat finger. Damn. Sorry about that everyone. We will be fully automated by the next one with a much lower chance of data entry calculation errors.
