Steel Bending and Snapping Medley

This event will be worth more points for the overall title as it really is many events wrapped into 1.  You pick which bend/ snap from each category that you want to do.  You have 25 minutes to complete all bends/ snaps.  The most points wins.  If there are ties, fastest time with the same number of points wins. Events are To Be Determined but will be similar to years past.
