When are the tentative rules slated to come out? Isn't it usually in like mid june, early july?
Also the next time the Committees that write the rules meet is at Nationals right?

Re: Science Olympiad 2013-2014

Just out of curiosity when was this posted/updated? http://marylandscienceolympiad.org/page2013SeasonInformation/2013_14%20Charts%20Combinedv5_15.pdf I'm assuming the Summer Institute one is more recent since it has the change from Thermodynamics to Complex/Simple Machines. Is Complex Machines a bra...

Re: Elastic Launched Glider C

West-Lake won ELG, I don't know their official scores but I timed one of their practice runs which was in the range of 37 secs (well I think it was them at least...unless multiple teams had 30+ flights, in which case I may be mistaken)

Re: Elastic Launched Glider C

I remember reading a post from wayyyy back from the old scioly boards-the not so nicely organized ones- and they were talking about how there was going to be a flying rotation similar to boomi-bridge-towers. On an unrelated note, should bending the TE of the Stab increase decalage?

Re: Elastic Launched Glider C

I was trimming my glider the other day when all of the sudden it started doing barrel rolls as it was flying and I have no idea why. I checked if everything was ok and nothing broken because it usually means that something's broken but I couldn't find what was wrong ): I like triple checked everythi...

Re: Astronomy C

Unfortunately the test exchange is still down and I don't recall any National tests on there from the past few years being posted. Do you think it's likely that the state test will have it?

Re: Astronomy C

Just out of curiosity, I know the rules mention "DS9 Imaging Analysis Software," has anyone actually had to use it for a test? Or maybe even know how to use it? Also when it says "light curves, motions, ...etc" What does it mean by motions? Like planetary motions? One last thing for RR Lyrae light c...

Re: Elastic Launched Glider C

We used thinned (50%) Ambroid cement with no problems. I'm interested in diluting Duco, is there a specific way to go about it? Do it by mass or volume? Do you put it in a air-tight bottle so you can use it many times? Also do you use the double glued joint method? Sorry for so asking so many quest...
