Though not posting all scores may seem to be a simple solution, the kids (and adults) will make their own calculations and figure it out anyway.  Yes, all teams need to be encouraged to participate and veteran teams need to not get discouraged about table scores.  The key is to NOT foucus on table scores.  
 
FLL is a great program and we can all spend a lot of time banging our heads trying to figure out how to make changes to solve the problem of a few teams, but we then run the risk of turning FLL into something else and creating more problems.  
 
Just my 2 cents!

Yes these are great comments.  But is there anything more we can do to 
instill this edict in other teams apart from telling them to "just 
have fun".     Believe me I try that all the time but it still doesn't 
get troubled teams to participate.       There have been some great 
discussions in the last week regarding rookie team mentoring, and 
keeping veteran teams motivated.  I think we need to continue these 
discussions even if it means pushing for change from the top ( i.e. 
don't post all scores)
