Re: Mission Possible C

Hey guys, I just supervised Mission at Cornell and I wanted to give some of my thoughts. Don't use an iPod or iPhone as your device that plays the Final Action - they have Lithium batteries. Apparently some teams got away with this at their Regional competitions in New York.....it's pretty clear per...

Re: Michigan 2017

For all I know, IA Central and Northville were miles ahead any of the other teams, but also for all I know Stevenson and Ann Arbor should have gone to nationals. It seemed like they did very little to really differentiate the teams. Please be careful in saying any team "should have gone to national...

Re: Michigan 2017

IA Central is a very good team, but I expect the gap between them and Northville to widen considerably at Nationals. Some of the events at States this year were very... strange. Mm, what do you mean by "strange"? I thought all events were run very well this year, and my team had no issues with sket...

Re: Michigan 2017

oh that makes sense. in illinois some tests (cough astro) are the same way and it's really annoying. That explains a lot.

Re: Michigan 2017

I highly doubt that the decision to send 60 teams instead of 40 teams to states was based solely on an increase in the number of teams enrolled. That is an INSANE increase, and one that certainly wouldn't come in just 1 year.. It was an increase from 48 to 60, so it's not quite that big. My guess i...

Re: Michigan 2017

Does anyone know how many teams were competing total in Region 6? It could help determine the number of teams going to the State competition from other regions. Hello there! About 17 teams. Honestly it didn't seem to us that the total number has changed though, so I'm not sure why 2 whole spots wer...
