This special situation was confirmed once again this year, as 18 teams in four categories had attended the Tomscat Trophy, while eight teams competed in two categories this weekend.
Once again, the AAA Class winner was not the Dutch national team of 2014, Cool Runnings, even though the team improved the meet average significantly (11.1 - 12.5) since June 14th. Creeps was the best Dutch team at the Tomscat Trophy, and M4trix won the 4-way competition this weekend. Only Cool Runnings attended both events. Half Ginger competed for the first time in the AAA Class.

However, it does not take much 4-way training for the 8-way competitors to get back to the same or a higher scoring level compared to their former 4-way teams. M4trix's 14.1 average even includes a 1-pointer in Round 8, where the exit formation (Bipole) funneled, and the judges could not acknowledge more than one single scoring point at the end.
M8trix will also compete in 8way at the national championships, and the Sun Path Products NSL News will follow up with scores and more information.

The two teams on the top of the A Class leaderboard at the Tomscat Trophy, Sonic and Dimension, did not compete this weekend, and 3rd place winner in June, 4igami, finished with gold medals at the national championships with an improved meet average.
All A Class teams finished with averages that were very similar to the earlier ones at the Tomscat Trophy, except last year's Rookie Class team Shinobi. However, only the last three rounds with zeros took Shinobi out of the race for the silver medals and allowed Winging It the slot switcher in the rankings. Shinobi had to make the last three rounds with two substitutes and lost official eligibility for the competition...
