Additional updates have been done for the Xcel iBook version 1.300. Those changes are now complete and available.
The Xcel iBook has now updated to version 1.300.
These revised Xcel charts for Additional “A” Value Parts are page numbered for the 2nd edition Xcel Code. If you have the 1st edition, you should be able to figure out where to insert this into your book.
Columns for Platinum and Diamond were added and a few Beam Acro elements that are now numbered in the Xcel Code (7.106) have been removed from this chart.
Judges are highly encouraged to use these charts as a reference when judging Bars, Beam or Floor in order to be aware of skills that normally do not have a value but can be used by certain Xcel divisions as “A’s”.
To view the new charts you may use the link below or visit the Region 5 website under the Xcel Program Rules.
The Xcel errata is now posted and the iBook Xcel Code of Points is updated. Please visit the following link for more information:
