    It was a two day. I saw the scores from day 1 (comp posted) and they were the highest in division. They hit on day 2. Went on to win grand champs, and didn’t get a bid. Something isn’t right.

    The EP took results down but they don’t post scores. They did for level 4 on day on but that was it. I just think the whole way Summit bids are run is political. There was no way this team should have not gotten a bid. Hopefully the EP makes it right.

    Pretty sure I know what event and team you're talking about and I am also very surprised to learn they didn't get a bid. I did feel like their was some favoritism at this event but bid wise that has to be a mistake? Both level 4 grand Champs and level 5 grand did not get bids but other teams from level 4 and 5 did? Doesn't seem right....

    Did this happen to be a level 4.2/5/5R team? I believe all of those level go against each other for bids. If a 4.2 wins grand for their division, I believe they can still get beat out by a 5 or 5R team if their scores were higher.

    There is definitely a glitch in the matrix...I am still hoping the EP makes it right. Or other EPS will read this and make sure they do things right.

    Looks like the EP made this right. A simple, or not so simple, mistake. People make mistakes, heck last year a team was named first place at Summit and it was another team that really got first.

    Was this at a competition in IL? If so, I believe the team you are talking about already had a full paid bid.

    They did not, but the EP just awarded them a paid bid. It’s good to see an EP make things right. Especially for this gym. I remember several years ago one of their teams got 1st at WSF, but the coaches noted something was off with the scoring and they knew they weren’t supposed to be first. They immediately went to the EP and they gave their first place to the second place (who was really supposed to be first in the first place).

    The American Northwest awarded two extra summit bids today after 2 errors, so it definitely happens!

    Seems like they made a few mistakes and had to award 3 or 4 extra bids. Oh my. Well at least they made it right.

    Who were those bids awarded to? I heard there was a mix up at that competition with Summit Bids.
