Re: Replaying Events for 2021

So... who thinks next season is going to happen, at least as we've known Olympiad to exist? Universities are talking of moving classes online for at least the fall ... schools are talking about A/B schedules or expanding the school day somehow ... Bill Gates and others don't think large gatherings a...

Re: Replaying Events for 2021

I would be curious what the percentage is of teams who have not yet competed in anything, vs teams that have been competing in invites for months now or already had their regional. If most teams have given this set of rules a run, then I think it should be okay to move on as planned for 2021, but if...

Re: Covid-19 and Nats/States

My understanding is the national organization recommended this evening that all states cancel any remaining qualifying tournaments (regional and state tournaments). I expect a continued flood of cancellations in light of this. I didnt want to quote the email I received for Norcal, but it did have a...

Re: Covid-19 and Nats/States

NorCal also cancelled now. Feel free to update the map.

I imagine most that are left will follow Nationals' lead.

Re: Covid-19 and Nats/States

I would clarify that it's not 100% certain that future rotations won't be affected by this change (especially those beyond the next few years). I could see some committees pushing to return certain events on the original timeline on the basis of it having been a while since they were in rotation. T...

Re: Covid-19 and Nats/States

Yep, Nats has been cancelled, and just before that Florida's State tourney cancelled too.

Keeping the same rules as 2020 for the 2021 season is also pretty bonkers; what a wild week it's been so far.

Re: Ohio 2020

I apologize for my comment, which sounded more critical and insensitive than I intended. The point that I was originally trying to convey was that this appeared to be an early overreaction, although I now understand that this is not the case. I strongly disagree that this was a bad idea. I feel tha...

Re: 2020 National Tournament: North Carolina State University

I wouldn't say so, as NorCal (as an individual entity) won't be next in line, it'd be Texas (if i remember correctly) The usual two bids per division are assigned to California state, and the two organizations (Northern California and Southern California) agree (with recognition from the national o...

Re: Indiana 2020

*This is assuming SoCal forfeits their bids as well which I doubt will happen* If SoCal doesn't send anyone, they would probably go to NorCal. California is treated as having two bids that are normally split between N and S I'm thinking it isn't likely that NorCal has a state tournament either, jus...
