The other post about whether meet attendance was down had me wondering about this so I thought I'd start a separate thread. For those of you who have already been to meets this year, what are you seeing as far as scoring? One poster mentioned that scores are lower this year. I was wondering if other people are seeing that as well? And, if so, is it across the board or is it just for the new compulsory routines? Are level 7 routines being scored harder now that it is the 2nd optional level instead of the 1st? What is scoring at level 6 like? It seems to me like that would be an "easy" level to do well at, but hey, I can't do any of those skills, so what do I know from easy? Is the scoring at "new 5" as hard as the scoring for "old 6" had the reputation of being? Are you seeing a lot of girls competing new 6? New 5? Do judges seem to be penalizing the level 8's who don't have a "C" skill in their routines? Anxious to hear any replies. DD is still 8 weeks out from her first meet (thank goodness)!
