Re: General Questions

OK, I'm always doing research for events and was trolling through soinc.org and came upon the Powerpoint for Mission Possible on this page: http://soinc.org/mission_possible_c . Found something there that I thought I should post as an FYI to everyone here. Take a look at Slide 11 which states: Block...

Re: General Questions

We want to take a 'first-aid' kit to our competition for possible emergency repairs during set-up. In SOs already run, was your extra 'stuff' impounded along with the MP 'box'?

Re: Ecology B/C

While the subject is very broad, I think there are still ways to study for the event. I consistently earn a 1st place in the event which would not paint the picture of a hit-and-miss test.

Re: Thoughts? (on rule points)

Yeah, we're going to have less than the possible 10 Tasks, more like 6 or 7...maybe 8. But that's ok, I'd rather that our MP just works (without any Penalties or [ugh] being Tier 2'ed :shock: ). Hey, anybody notice that the TSL listed in the Rules Manual only has 8 Tasks?

Re: Ecology B/C

Well, I wasn't there, so don't quote me, but from what I saw it was excruciatingly long stations , some of which ce...

We're really really REALLY *trying* to follow the rules, but sometimes they're hard to figure out and sometimes it's hard to get a *clear* clarification. cypressfalls Robert - Are there ANY of your task-a...
