Thanks Alan,
Superb presentation by Bob at the judging seminar. Not without its controversy though (which was good in itself)

Just to kick things off! - I would still give a zero for the spins in slide 30. The entire manoeuvre is outside the box - not 60%.

I'm with you on that one.
The spin entry and the 1/4 loop are entirely outside the box.

Alan - I completely 'misjudged ' you. Spent a needless 10 minutes reinforcing my case! I like these open forum discussions though -if they expose weaknesses in the rules.

As you know, in the SC it does state that the entry & exit  before & after are indeed judged as part of a manoeuvre - but only if some elements of the manoeuvre are in the box. (my interpretation)
Where all the manoeuvre elements are outside the box - there is nothing to mark -so any entry & exits although they maybe inside the box, count for nothing.

A similar analogy might be, say, on a centre manoeuvre -say a full snap. The pilot does an excellent entry, excellent exit  - but forgets the snap. Again the entry & exit count for nothing, because there's nothing to mark.

I think it was a no-brainer (and probably a mistake), but nevertheless, I'm happy to be unpredictable  :D
