is there a place to see scores for Finals stage and how the Finals shaped up from the inception of NPS to now?

As far as historical data, they live on as legend in our hearts and minds.

As for the most recent NPS Finals, they can be found here - thank you, Tova Charles:

General Discussion / Registration Issue When Registering New Slam
« Last post by HoustonRH7 on July 29, 2014, 10:00:22 AM »
So, I've been trying to register a new slam through the page, and every time I do I get an error message of some kind of error page. Usually it's the "ERROR 500 - INTERNAL SERVER ERROR" page, though occasionally it will just pop up with a single line of text about an invalid time-out or something like that. I've tried this about 4 times so far, and I'm a bit worried to keep trying in case the site decides to charge my card every time I submit the form.

Is there a way to check and see if the page has charged my card already, and the info went through? I'm assuming it didn't, since I didn't get a confirmation e-mail, but again, I'd rather not suddenly see 4 charges for registration on my card... is there a way I could do this over the phone?

The registration, by the way, was under the name "Fayetteville Word Wars".
