Result

Final results show the M4A score was reduced to 2,355,210 after log-checking, a rather embarrassing 13.2% reduction. This was largely due to 21 violations of the band-change rule, of which 11 were multipliers. Something to work on next time! Nevertheless, we still managed second place in England.
