Re: Ohio 2014

Edit: I also looked back, and I think something also happened where Towers had to be dropped in Ohio in 2011? It goes along the same lines that people definitely shouldn't be upset about it, and difficult decisions must be made. That said, I think it sounds like lovescience wants to just make the e...

Re: Ohio 2014

Why was a false ceiling not introduced when a change a venue was not possible? If it was being looked into being moved, the venue was clearly determined to not be good for Helicopters. False ceilings have been done in schools, why not in the field house when a change of venue could not be made? Can...

Re: Ohio 2014

Thank you for the explanation and acknowledgement of some of the unfortunate components of what took place with Helicopters. It really is appreciated. I have a question I would like to understand, though I realize I should just let this go. Why was a false ceiling not introduced when a change a venu...

Re: Ohio 2014

Also, it would have been nice if the coaches could have notified the kids ahead of time so they could have prepared their teams. Everyone was very blindsided, which was not a good tone to set for the start of the award ceremony when emotions were very high. This could have been done through the same...

Re: Ohio 2014

Complete results are available at tiny.cc/ohso Regarding the helicopters as a trial event, the decision to do so was made in unanimous consultation with the event supervisors, arbitrators and tournament director. There were a lot of issues and several arbitrations regarding judgment calls over heli...

Re: Meteorology B Question Marathon

Follow up questions: 1. When the positive and negative charges separate, which are higher and which are closer to the ground? 2. What is the "feeler" stage of a lightning strike and what is the postive upward stroke from the ground called? Negative charges build up in the clouds and positive charge...

Re: OSU Helicopters (Petition Against Field House)

Some things the students behind this should probably keep in mind: 1) Problems with event locations affects each team equally. I would not expect teams to be designing their helicopters with an intent to get it stuck. I think the problem you should be trying to fix with the petition is the fact tha...

Re: OSU Helicopters (Petition Against Field House)

The State Director and Helicopters Event Supervisor are well aware of your concerns regarding this and actively in discussions about it. I don't think there's an explicit need to 'further petition' them at this time. However please keep in mind there are a LOT of other factors to take into account ...

Re: Ohio 2014

How's about a petition?
I think that would get their attention. They would see how we really hate the field house.[/quote]

Not sure how to do a petition, but would be interested in it if enough people would support it . . .

Re: Helicopters B

If you are an Ohio team headed to States on April 26th and you do not think that the French Field House with its rafters, cross-breeze and 48 ft. ceilings are an ideal venue for true performance rather than a game of chance, please consider expressing that concern ASAP. It appears no one has suggest...
