National Scouting

This is our first year going to Nationals and I am on the scouting crew. I was wondering if anyone has any advice or hints on how to do this effectively. We have match forms to fill out during the matches in our division.
In the Information they just posted they mentioned have scouts for each division but I am trying to figure out the significance of this. Any help would be GREAT!

There’s a thread about some methods that other teams have used.
