I think if you look at every strike you can come up with a lot of variations. If the plating process was done poorly or just quickly or during the process running low on the plating, the variations can add up. I'm just wondering what the club considers a variation. I think small font and large font or rotation or missing letters or something to that effect would be a variation not the placement of the plating. I just want to know what the official word is on this.
