Re: Protein Modeling C

I hope they do. I've been checking periodically everyday.

I think they will, since there's no reason to keep it to themselves. Last year's was released, and it helped me tons in terms of what they were looking for in the prebuilds...

Re: 2013 Nationals Opening Ceremony Keynote Speaker

Also, the Mythbusters are out. We already tried, it's not happening. Aw, Mr. Chalker, you just read my mind. The whole time I was reading your post, I kept chanting "Mythbusters! Mythbusters!" in my head until that sentence. >.> Okies, past that... Wow, Neil DeGrasse Tyson would be an absolutely am...

Re: 2012 National Tournament: University of Central Florida

I tried several times to get them to pick up the overall pace, but was told that the students were enjoying the moment and it'd detract from that. I do remember several events in which the top 6 were read considerably faster than the other events. At the time, I thought it was just the speakers swi...

Re: Future Aviation Events

Heheh! I'll be excited to work in another balsa building flight event next year. Helicopter was a lot of stress, but I learned much about balsa and flight in general. Chalker, if I were to fly balsa outdoors in the hot, humid area of Houston, what should I beware of? What are the main differentces b...

Re: 2012 National Tournament: University of Central Florida

Just curious, but does anyone happen to know the exact school that the Japanese ambassador team is from?

Re: National Results Discussion

I just want to mention that I've talked to the Japanese team members several times at the parade of states, swap meet, competition grounds, after the closing ceremony, and during the afterglow dance. Not to put anyone down, but their English isn't the best that I've seen from a Japanese student that...

Re: Ceiling at Nationals

The only quip I had about the hallway venue vs gym thing... Did teams that fly from the smooth ceiling get a sort of "additional time" if their helicopter flew over the side of the balcony and went down to the gym floor? I feel like the time would have stopped when it went past the horizontal plane ...

Re: Ceiling at Nationals

To both Mr. Chalkers and Mr. Anderson:

Never have I read three posts that made me laugh so hard in my life. Thanks for the laugh; I think I really needed it.

Re: Protein Modeling C

I haven't really been around the pmod thread (I'm a heavy helicopters lurker), but I finally came round to reading... Whew, I just read a marathon through this whole thread, and I have to say, there was great information from many people, especially you, Phenylethylamine. I'd love to meet you someda...

Re: Ceiling at Nationals

Just a minor clarification to this: the national event supervisors are usually the ones who generate the responses to questions submitted to the website. At a minimum they are provided copies of them. You can safely assume that regardless of whether a response was posted as a FAQ, at Nationals the ...
