    I fully understand that and we knew this coming in. I was just stating my opinion that I didn't understand why they do this because say small coed is still small coed if a team that outscores another and doesn't get a bid I don't think a random draw should decide this. This is my opinion I don't mean anything about it

    I don't think this is true. They've given 2nd place teams bids before. But they won't skip over the first place team to do it.

    Also, I always crack up at score comparisons. You can't do it. Not from competition to competition or division to division.

    Whenever you have humans looking at something and assigning a number, there is inevitably a lack of consistency. Sorry but it happens. So a 4th place in one division might have won the other, but you can't know that by comparing scores.

    You can't compare scores across judging panels. Each small coed division was scored by a different set of judges so you really can't compare the scores. It doesn't mean anything. It doesn't mean you were a better team because you scored higher on a separate set of judges.

    I'm sorry you didn't get your bid :(
