Re: 2019-2020 Cornell Invitational (B/C)

Geologic Mapping (3rd) - I found this test challenging. It was long, in-depth, and detailed. Twas nice to see some isostasy math return from old dynamic planet topics, and, once again, it showed a bunch of areas we need to work on. Lots of different types of questions, so it was a broad and solid, ...

Re: 2019 National Tournament: Cornell University

There's no limit to alternates. In their team they're probably trying to save money by bringing less alternates. So they're asking if more alternates need to come. Are they? It sounds like they're asking if they're able to come rather than need to we were going to bring just four because we anticip...

Re: 2019 National Tournament: Cornell University

quick question - for the oldies but goodies events, can only team members compete or also alternates?

also, since we'd like to get rooming out of the way - if oldies events are open to alternates, will we be able to bring additional alternates beyond the 4 for the two trial events?

Re: 2019 National Tournament: Cornell University

Yes, we certainly would like to know the trial events for Nationals. Our state tournament (NM) is so stinking early we have been waiting for a hint for a month now for our alternates to know if they want to make to trip to Ithaca. And the Nationals site is still so empty of information. Very frustr...

Re: Game On C

Does anyone know what is meant by "Elements are logically grouped and organized"? How would we group or organize them? like all of the code for variables in one section, mechanics in the other, so they when they look at your code it is clear and they see how they are connected Yeah, and different s...

Re: The Event that "Got Away"

No, it's not a study event where hours of work can lead to that gold m...
