Re: Scioly Assassination 135: A Series of Unfortunate Non-Harmless April Fool's Day Pranks

The target is going to be a doctor in "a number of years", according to the clue, because doctors know if iinsurance covers meds, right? Does anyone know any med students or people who publicly plan to be doctors? When your own sister forgets you... I read through all of your posts and di...

Re: Movie "Float" at Nationals

The movie "Float" will be shown in a private screening both Thursday and Friday at Nationals. This film is about the highly competitive F1D indoor competition, and features Albuquerque's own Brett Sanborn, who got his start in SO and is the current world champion. Info can be found at htt...

Re: 2019 National Tournament: Cornell University

Just a few questions: When will the event supervisor lists be uploaded, and will there be auto-loaders for both Div B and Div C Boomilever? Moreover, when will all the homerooms be sorted out and posted? The NES list is typically included in the tournament program, so I wouldn't expect one until mu...

I don’t think any grad volunteers have received their event volunteer assignments yet as far as I know?


I know for a fact that many have... If nothing else, some assist with the same event year after year.

Assistant Coach, Solon High School (OH). I hope to be coaching my team; if not, I'll be volunteering for something TBD.

Re: Nationals Bid Discussion

As anyone who has actually engaged with us would know, we are happy to have people involved at the national level. This has certainly been my experience when working with most volunteers for the national organization. The problem we often face is finding people that are willing and able to commit t...

They are DEFINITELY not father and son.
Try brothers


Can confirm that ScottMaurer19 is my younger brother

Re: Nationals Bid Discussion

I would estimate the odds of them splitting the national tournament into two separate tournaments at zero. Ignoring whether it is an appealing idea (I don't think it is), consider the practical aspects. It is already incredibly difficult for NSO to identify willing host sites - the direct costs to ...

Re: Nationals Bid Discussion

TBH, if someone wanted to give legitimacy to SciOly and have it be on the same level as ChemOly, BiOly, etc (or even Science Bowl), the bid system isn't what's wrong. The entire events roster needs to be looked at and scrubbed. New events either pertaining to relevant topics (such as CS events that...

Re: Nationals Bid Discussion

If we're throwing out ideas here, what about this: 1) Figure out the critical mass of teams for nationals at the venue. 2) Give the #1 team in each state an automatic bid. 3) Give 1 extra bid to states in alphabetical order to satisfy the max amount of teams. 4) Subsequent years pick up at next alp...

Re: Nationals Bid Discussion

I was thinking of having the best team from every state, and then the 10 best teams that didn't win states. The only (huge and obvious) problem with this is that there is no way to tell which are the 10 best teams that didn't win states, other than to have some kind of invitational tournament that ...

Wait, so I agree with the above obvs, but another question...(sorry to distract, please read the above posts they're quality!) ... I don't really want to separate the B and C tourneys, but it's a lot of people to have together at once... Why is it important to have B and C joined anyway? Maybe I'm ...

Re: Nationals Bid Discussion

Nationals is for the best teams in each state, not for the best teams in the country. This has certainly been the traditional view of the national organization. Whether or not this should be the focus is up for debate. I have also been told the existing bid system, which rewards the states with the...
