2007 Rumors

Only weeks after the 2006 FPAW, teams are forming for 2007 in Amsterdam, and it looks like there will be some doozies:

Open Pairs

Dave Murphy/Dave Schiller
Ted Oberhaus/Randy Silvey
Dave Lewis/Pat Marron

Open Co-op

Dave Lewis/Dave Murphy/Dave Schiller (aka D3)
Tom Leitner/Ted Oberhaus/Randy Silvey
Toddy Brodeur/Larry Imperiale/Paul Kenny

If things keep going at this pace, Amsterdam will be incinerated by the performances these teams will lay down.

What other players are joining forces to compete in Amsterdam?

Difficulty gradation

Hi guys! I wanted to ask sort of a favor. Could you please write sort of a score spectre on difficulty judging, so I could understand it better. For instance how many points would you give to a conseq. combination of with the spin pulls, a tipping combo and etc. And what would generally get 1 point, 2 and up to 10. I know everyone has a different way of judging diff, but thats why im asking )
