Scanning For Filter Between 30 and 300 bars ago

Hi ThinkScripters. Have a thinkscript question that maybe simple for somebody to respond to. In Stock Hacker I am looking for an event that occured "between a RANGE of bars" ago. In this case I don't want a moving average cross-over to have occured between 300 and 30 bars ago.
The thinkScript in stock hacker that I used which it will not accept is:

MovingAvgCrossover("length1" = 50, "length2" = 200) is false within between 300 and 30 bars.

So the question is what is the correct thinkscript for a within "RANGE of bars" ago.

Appreciate the assistance!

here is a lower study to experiment with
i disabled MovingAvgCrossover() as my signal didn't seem right.
i added MovingAverage()'s and looked for 'crosses' and that worked.

this can take 10 seconds to draw the chart, so not sure if it will work in a scan.
not tested in a scan.
