Re: Texas 2019

Also the really nice thing about the way Texas does things is that if certain tournament dates don't work out, it's not a big deal, you can just pick another regional. For example, there have been countless times where a certain regional was too close to the second out of state invitational or there...

Re: Science Olympiad at MIT Invitational 2019

I mean obviously it will open a spot in the top 10, but do you think the Texas team attending nats will be better as a result of the change? Also Unome where is Japan on your rankings :P I wouldn't say s...

Re: Poorly Run Event Stories
