Re: New Coaches

For alumni who went on to coach teams, how did you go about contacting teams/starting to help out? I coached events for Solon MS during my first three years of college. Then before my senior year the head coach for the Solon HS left and there was nobody willing to take the role, so my mom and I ste...

Re: Replaying Events for 2021

What I'm proposing is that 28 events are scored, and teams can drop the 5 lowest events, resulting in the same number (23) of events counting towards a team score, and allowing teams to pick which events they want scored more. Lots of invitationals have a hard enough time running 23 events (finding...

Re: Replaying Events for 2021

So in the spirit of "replaying" events, I can assume conflicts will be completely the same on the nationals schedule? Changing those up could be a way to make a significant difference without changing too much, although some people will probably get thrown under the bus. ill just start by saying i ...

Re: Replaying Events for 2021

i think this also speaks to a broader issue with running events two years in a row to begin with. i strongly dislike the fact that events are in for more than one year and the only event i had that didnt change, EXPD (and meteo to some extent) is not my favorite event because after doing it for so ...

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.

Re: Ohio 2020

In addition to the decision about on-campus classes you mention, OSU also issued guidance cancelling most non-essential campus events through April 20. My impression is that this period will likely be extended further. I would be shocked if the number and distribution of cases in Ohio and elsewhere...

Re: Ohio 2020

Isn't the Ohio state tournament not until April 25th? I get wanting to be cautious, but cancelling this far in advance voyages into overreaction territory. Ohio is not one of the current hotbeds for COVID-19, so I have to question the reasoning behind making such a drastic, irreversible announcemen...

Re: Covid-19 and Nats/States

No Solon and no Troy at Nats... Personally, although I do not have official knowledge of current discussions, I think it unlikely that the national tournament will move forward as planned. I am hoping that we receive some sort of official guidance from the national organization soon about their cur...
