Re: 2012 National Tournament: University of Central Florida

Yeah, KSC is fairly similar to Smithsonian Air & Space, but without the airplanes and with the Rocket Garden. Which is sick. I was there for a few days to watch the launch of the Pluto-New Horizons probe a few years ago, and I loved it.

Re: Remote Sensing C

Seeing as how the NM State test has been exactly the same for the past 2 years, I think I know what to study...

No. Well, honorary, but that doesn't really count, does it?

Re: Remote Sensing C

Eaststroudsburg, I didn't think of it that way. I suppose it's a good point. I do think that they could have spread it over a couple years, though, but it is a good chance to study multiple events at the same time... I'll probably be doing that, as my signature suggests. :D

Re: Remote Sensing C

I think the way they did the events is kinda strange this year: we've got water quality dynamic planet, which emphasizes freshwater this year and remote sensing, which emphasizes human impact on the hydrosphere 20 of 23 events have to do with water. which doesn't sound like much, but really... I don...

Re: Detailed State Results

Bringing it back to the original topic, for New Mexico state competition we usually get a report like the one that was released after nationals - the placing and points accrued toward team total for said placing. This year, we only got placing. I suppose we could hand-calculate it... but that takes ...

Re: how many events?

usually practice 8 or so events, competing in 4 or 5 at regionals, 3 or 4 at state and nationals; usually one of those is one I picked up in the last couple weeks because nobody else practiced it. Check the signature for the events this year... :D

Re: Funny Stories from Nationals

Nice. I was about to leave the swap meet with a couple friends, and a couple girls came up to us with armloads of stuff. They asked us what they would have to give us to get our hats... so we almost got a bunch of little debbie snack cakes, plus a bunch of other stuff, but at the last minute my frie...
