Re: Your Daily Random Comment

Does anyone know when the Common App allows people to apply for the 2014 fall semester? I'm trying to get all my application stuff done (as much as possible) before September rolls around because I won't have any time between school and activities. Or am I just missing something. I think it opens t...

Re: Robot Arm C

Unfortunately it is not representative of the "best of the best" in each event, only the "best of the best" teams which undoubtely leaves out many of the "Best" in each event........should take a clue from MSHSA Wrestling and go with a team tourny and an indiviual tour...

Re: Sounds of Music B

The nationals judges in 2012 were also really nice. I'm not sure if they were the same as this year or not, but they gave us a lot of compliments and eased the pressure and nerves quite a bit. Many of them were the same. I think the national event supervisor changed though. Either way, I must say t...

Re: 2013 National Tournament: Wright State University

Anyone notice that the Division B national tournament results were changed? J.C. Booth Middle School got moved up from 15th to 12th, and based on comparing the new scoresheet with the old scoresheet it looks like it was because their 61st in Disease Detectives got changed to 27th. But what's really...

Re: What Events do you plan on doing next year?

sound of music was the best event on the planet! +1 +2 I may or may not do it again next year... So much stress, frustration, and tears were poured into this event. +3 Most comprehensive event, in my opinion. If you can master Sounds of Music, you have mastered building, understanding physics, unde...

Re: how to choose the competition team?

So it basically comes down to versatility and reliability, meaning it would be better to have more events covered at a decent score rather than just have like 2 events that they're spectacular in? I mean we still have until next year to finalize the team, but it's concerning that we'd have to cut p...

I'm not entirely sure how phpBB works, but given that often times we do try to coordinate events and meetups at nationals and other tournaments, is there any way for scioly to get a event calendar up and/or allow people to join events, almost like facebook? Could things be done through google calend...

Re: Unofficial Rankings, Division B

Solon middle school usually requires each kid to carry 5 to 6 events. Are you talking about 9th graders? If so, I can tell you this is most certainly not true. Events are pretty balanced, in fact, to the point where almost every student has 2-4 events, including the 9th graders. Just wanted to clar...
