Points on the sack race are calculated by left tenth of a second.
Every 10th of a second means you lose 5 points from the initial 2000 points.
 

well i must have a different game because i've finished with everything from 29.6 to 29.0 and i never score higher than 1160

Or a different revision.
I will try and take a picture here of that 1130 score.

I am downloading another rom revision to put on my everdrive to see if a similar time yields 1120 points.
If it does, I will redo my score as this rom I am using could also be providing different score calculations for timed events like the overboard.

Edit:

Got it down to the same time. Different scores.
This makes my current score invalid. I will post a new score using this rom tonight or tomorrow.

Score update at page 2, using the correct rom this time.
My points per sessions are below:





I will try to figure out the differences between them and I will send the rom to Guil once I am done with this analysis.

It seems no matter whether I hold my score back or go at it head on, I end up in 7th or 8th place most times. I should just post my score when I get it and move on

What about your Snoopy score? I've neglected BOTW so much that I would say at this point I never really got started!

right that's what i meant it's interesting the things we find out about these games, i was never able to come up with a consistent method for the boot throw so your score is safe at least from me

A Snoopy score is when you hit a home run with Snoopy's Silly Sports Spectacular, causing it to explode into tiny little pieces!

This game is frustrating. If I could be more consistent with a few of the events, I could get a much better score. This is what I've got for now. I got this score on Wednesday, so I expcted to have topped it by now. Damn you river jump and pogo!

Yeah, it is.
I switched to the rom from the goodnes set on the everdrive and I got the same results you did on the sack race.
And I couldn't get perfect scores on overboard by dropping the other player in under 2 seconds.
The previous rom might have been ripped from a chinese bootleg. They like to change stuff like this.

As for the boot, it is down to timing and not swinging more than 4 times. If you do, you need to stop completely and start swinging again after a second, or you will lose power and speed before throwing the boot.

Interesting stuff about the ROM revisions. I was wondering how Bea got scores ending in 5.  

I am guessing the Red is gonna drop a big score before the day is over.

Congrats on the high scores everyone. I feel that playing on emulator instead of real hardware hurt me this week. Although Jimbo somehow got a high score with an emulator.

I am waiting eagerly for him to do it.
It would be epic if he comes and drops a 18,300 score.

Don't count on it.  I haven't had as much free time as I was expecting to have this weekend, so I've only been able to try a couple times so far.  I'll see if I can put up a decent score this evening.

You are at least 10 times a better video game player than me, so I know you can do it! *pom poms*

What are the hashes for the two ROMs you've been using?

The Goodnes one (Snoopy's Silly Sports Spectacular (U) [!].nes) has a CRC32 of C5211378.
The other one, that I got from a torrent file years ago has a CRC32 of B4479532. It doesn't match the CRC of any other rom dumps on the Goodnes set.
