I hope the regional dates will be closer this year, so we can have more meaningful invitationals for everyone. I pledge...

Re: Nationals Event Discussion

A lot of people are saying it felt like an invitational - anything more specific about why? I didn't notice anything particularly different in that sense. Perhaps it is due to the large number of college based invites, which are designed to feel like Nationals? So these students' perspectives are f...

Re: 2019 National Tournament: Cornell University

And we are off to Ithaca! We are 1 hour into our 16 hour bus ride. See y'all tomorrow! We got an email from the Cornell Directors - they told us our dorm building, but not any of the rooms. Anyone else in the same situation? (We also don't know how large the rooms are - apparently its likely single...

Re: 2019 National Tournament: Cornell University

The Awards Ceremony is scheduled from 7:30 pm to 9:30 pm. Who is taking odds on the ability to stick to that schedule? I do not think I have been at a Combined Div B/ Div C National Awards Ceremony that has taken less that 3.5 hours.... Last year, awards’ scheduled start time was 7:30, and awards c...

I don't know if this has been said already or not, but is the room for codebusters a lecture hall or a standard classroom? I personally really don't like working in lecture halls because of the way our team works together. Any info from either the people running the tournament or have been to the c...

That really sucks for anybody who's not in eastern or central time. oof I can't even wake up at 6 am ever and I'm in eastern time.
