I was at the Great Plains Sectional last weekend. On stage 2, I had a good run (for me) and everything went as planned with out a hick up, I was told my time by the RO as 24.18. At the end of the match I received my copy of all the stages I signed off on. Stage 2 was listed as 34.18 seconds and that would have been an eternity without having some kind of issue with the stage. This is a big wake up call to look over the docs you're signing. It cost me at least 10 spots over all and a lot more for that stage. Don't get me wrong.... nobody to blame here but me, I should have looked over the score and time before signing it. The RO writing down the times and scores has his hands full and just misunderstood or didn't hear correctly. It was miserable with rain and drizzle all day so I'm not surprised.
So the moral of the story is, don't assume that everything noted for the stage is correct. Check your score and time before signing off.
