Re: BEARSO Invitational

I can confirm that this is definitely the largest in C, surpassing San Diego Regional's 100-ish. I'm pretty sure no invitational has topped 80 before. In B, San Diego Regional is typically in the vicinity of 120-ish. I'm really curious where this 150-team limit comes from. I hear a lot about it but...

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.
