Re: New York 2014

"It's nice to have a team that's not saying those nasty things." Stream went down immediately after.

On another note, congrats to FM and Columbia. Have enough fun at nationals for all of us. :)

Re: Open Letter to NYSSO (We need your support!)

But are there any updates? Has NYSSO responded at all? Even if twenty thousand people signed it, it wouldn't make much of a difference if Miller/NYSSO simply ignored it... Not to my knowledge. I think many people misinterpreted the goal of the petition; at this point, we aren't going to compete. We...

Re: New York 2014

Mr. Boyd, thanks so much for taking the time to bring up your concerns about this issue. Because they have already been addressed so effectively by other members of the forum, I'll respond to them briefly. 1. I believe the reason the response to our disqualification was so great is because multiple ...

Re: Open Letter to NYSSO (We need your support!)

There were several articles in the news broadcasted and posted online the past two days about what happened. We talked more or less extensively with the reporters and really emphasized that we wanted to see change in NYSSO for the future, as is stated in our petition, rather than being allowed to co...

Re: New York 2014

Also, for everyone who lives in New York, we were interviewed by CBS, Fox, and News12 (a Long Island news station) today, so we may be on tonight's news if you're interested in hearing from more of us.

Re: New York 2014

In 2011, Great Neck South was disqualified from the tournament because they also failed to submit their paperwork. I believe that in their case their coach was successfully contacted and spoken to before the deadline, however, and they still didn't get it in. In 2009, Bethlehem experienced the same ...

Re: New York 2014

Sorry for the double post, but since the actual tournament is coming up soon, maybe it would be better if we didn't clutter this thread and instead move the current discussion to this thread.

Re: Letter to the New York Director

I'd like to thank EastStroudsburg13 for organizing this petition on behalf of Scioly. It really means a lot to us.

If you guys want to continue supporting WM SciO, or discussing this issue, please check out our petition here or the Scioly thread here.

Re: New York 2014

This is just so disappointing. I have signed the petition myself, along with the other person from my team who has an account on the forums, but I have a feeling that our efforts will be futile for WM. If anything, i'm hoping that the petition has an effect for later years. Though I really have no ...

Open Letter to NYSSO (We need your support!)

Hi everyone, First off, thanks so much to everyone who's been expressing their support to the difficult situation Ward Melville SciO has found themselves in. For those who don't know, we were recently disqualified from the New York State Tournament due to an administrative mishap. Although it's more...

Re: Letter to the New York Director

Thanks so much. All the support from you guys is really appreciated by the team. For the sake of intellectual debate, what is the message we are sending and I don't mean the letter. I mean, are we saying it's ok to miss deadlines as long as you are really good? No. We're saying that fifteen students...

Re: New York 2014

Since no one from our team has really talked about what happened, I guess I will. It's absolutely awful, we were told only recently but continued to study and build while our school district appealed the decision. It's just totally heartbreaking. Imagine if this happened to you/your team. Our distri...
