How many Gold points are needed to qualify? Last year I think the lowest was
92. Does any one remember?

I answered this previously this week. There is no way to tell as there
are way to many scenerios. Unlike last year, there are more qualifiers
Nation wide and also more Gold teams. That means more teams getting
points for one. It also means less berths given back to the larger
regions which means less teams getting in by points (possibly). Only 7
are guaranteed by ASA Code. Point totals can also be swayed late in the
game. For example if a team with the lead has 110 points an dthe second
place team has 60, then the first place team qualifies the required
points is then 60 no longer 110.

All things considered in the past the points needed were near 100. Is this
true?

I belive there was a tie at around 51 and they had a coin toss.

I feel the teams will need about 120 points to go to the Nationals.

Not necessarily. If the top point teams all qualify then the number required
could go a lot lower.

There are still many opportunities to qualify for the point leaders and in
theory, those teams getting the most points are playing well enough to
eventually win.

For example, based on Vegas the California Cruisers probably have 100 plus
points already. But they are also very likely to win a qualifier meaning
those points are thrown out and the next high number moves up. Which could be
much less. Also remember most of the qualifiers have near 20 teams and not
the large number of teams that Phx, Lancaster, and Vegas have so if different
teams do well in each different tournament , the average points will be
less.  I would say it is best to try and win one and not worry about the
point totals for another two weeks or so

Andy,

I kind of agree with you..however, an additional thought is....most of the
eastcoast and south qualifiers do not have as many teams as Phoenix, Las Vegas
and Lancaster.

Given those numbers.....a team who only goes to those western qualifiers,
finishes well, and didn't win one of the remaining berths, could set the bar at
140+ points.

With qualified teams playing more and more in the tournaments, it can get
tougher..not easier to win a berth...and again...depends on the draw that you
get, and how soon you meet the team in the brackets.

Tyronne is the only coach that I've seen successfully (gamble) and not attend
qualifiers based on his points and perceived bar. To me....the right answer is
win one and don't worry about the points.
