    Nate was so consistent today. Would be a shame if it does not count.

    Here is the source of confusion. One would assume there is not actually an issue. Are there 2 or 3 rounds of sanctioned R?

    It looks like 2 rounds plus 1 cash round. It is unclear to me what the class of the cash round is.

    My phone is blowing up with texts saying there was no sanction for round 3. Seems unlikely. I assume all is good w/ score & record.

    @RazorRoss3 Thats how I read it. If you compare to Masters in the same screen shot you can see 2 Rounds of R which includes 2 rounds of Cash Prize. If we read it the same way for Swiss. It is 2 Rounds of R and 1 of those rounds is Cash Prize. The 3rd/Finals round does not seem to be sanctioned at all as F/C/E/L/R or even Cash prize. It is confusing for sure.

    So does that mean that technically one of the qualifiers wasn't sanctioned?

    @RazorRoss3 that is where I see the possibility of the score getting submitted. Either all the skiers from Round 1 or 2 do not get their score in the books and the 3rd round goes in the books with Nate's record submission. Either way someone gets hosed. Hopefully wiser people in the sport make the correct call. I do not know the right answer.

    Amazing to think that its going to take a piece of 4 ball to go beyond the new mark assuming it stands.

    @MattP i will bet a 6 pack of IPA that in the end all 3 rounds go in the books.

    I think @Horton is probably right but isn't there some IWWF rule about no more than 2 L scores allowed per skier per day? Or am I just crazy? The two aren't necessarily mutually exclusive
  • ozskiozski Posts: 1,485
    D3 are going to push that message regardless of what they think :)

    All speculation...Let's sit back and see it unfold.

    I was there and it was very dark and seemed like it was going to be legit if the boat path was good.

    @RazorRoss3 Not exactly. See the rule below. I think you are thinking of the rule that limits the number of sanctions per site per day/weekend. I can't member that exact rule off the top of my head.

    AWSA Rule 15.02
    F. 1. The maximum number of rounds, which can count for the IWWF rankings
    list or records, is limited to four (in each of slalom, trick and jump) at any one
    competition – meaning consecutive days at the same site.


    IWWF - WORLD RANKING LIST DESCRIPTION AND SCHEDULE
    The ranking is based on the average of each skiers' two best scores from two separate tournaments and two separate sites. Only one score in each event is considered from each tournament. Each
    IWWF Federation sanctions Record Capability or World Standings List tournaments from which
    the performances are taken
  • RazorRoss3RazorRoss3 Posts: 1,269 Mega Baller
    Thanks @MattP, that must be it. I just remember seeing some pros at 6 round weekends this year who would ski the first 2 rounds and then skip the 3rd both days. The 4 limit in any given weekend would explain that behavior since you wouldn't want to take all 3 rounds day 1 and then have only 1 round to put up a score day 2. So with that in mind there should be no problem with having 3 rounds of L/R go into the books assuming that the 3rd round (the final) was sanctioned. I haven't sanctioned an event in several years and even when I did they were all class C so I'm curious, is "$" one of the available classes? Is it Grass Roots, C, L/R, $ or is "$" an add on to the traditional classes like C, C$, L/R, L$/R$?

    Wasn't there a thread a couple of years back saying no one would ever round 3 ball at -43? Congrats to Nate! Can't wait to see the video!

    Here's a use of the word impossible. That was impossibly good skiing.

    When someone tells you it's impossible they're really just afraid it isn't and don't want you to raise the bar. At least that's how I used to treat my power lifting, and I proved a good number of people wrong in that arena.

    There is a difference between "impossible for me" and impossible in general. I would agree my odds of [email protected] are slim (virtually none), but Nate just did it so clearly not impossible. I would also say that my odds of running 43 are slim (none) but I would never say it can't be done. There's some freak of nature athlete out there who will do it one day.

    [email protected] just adds another 1/2 ball to the impossible that is what us mere mortals can aspire to.

    Not alone thinking this,... Where is the video of this awesome performance?

    Towboat, magazine, Random iPhone from the shore ???
    Anyone?,...

    I need to ski back to the handle obviously.
