It's been a bit since I have used the SCCA notes but assume they still are in the format of R6 instead of 6R. This always seems backwards to me. From my point of view (as a novice of notes) The descriptive system seem most intuative, the numeric with a number first next and the numeric with number last, least. I realize that when reading slowly it is easy to handle all three, but in the heat of battle when a string of notes is read off, I find I have to spend more brain time digesting a string in the format of R6 than I do 6R, and even less so for flat right or fast right. Am I more mentally challenged than most or do others feel the same. Was there ever a debate about the order of call for the numeric notes or was it a given that they would be direction-severity instead of the other way around ?
