Re: Pennsylvania 2016

I think you mean Central, not CE (Central East)? Good to see that my old HS is still doing (mostly) alright. I will be intrigued to see what happens at States... they had a decent margin, but then having 2nd-5th all within 20 points of each other could make things interesting, and it's not uncommon ...

Re: Reach for the Stars B

Just uploaded the test I wrote for MI Region 8 to the test exchange.

Again, like the Astro test I wrote, a bit on the harder side for a Regionals.

Re: Astronomy C

Just uploaded the test I wrote for MI Region 8 to the test exchange.

Based on the score distribution, it was probably a little too hard for a typical Regionals, but it's still good practice :)

Re: Michigan 2016

Supervising at Region 8 was fun -- looking forward to doing it again next year :D

Also, I'm going to email the tournament director and see if I can post the tests I wrote for Astro/Reach on the Test Exchange. (Related: I may have made the tests a little bit too difficult...)

Edit: Uploaded!

Re: Your Daily Random Comment

Protip: "please be respectful of other users" applies to you equally. Just because someone was being a jerk to you doesn't mean you should be a jerk to them. To be fair, trolls do not deserve respect, else they will continue being trolls. People on the internet, no matter how infuriating they may b...

Re: Most Annoying Event?

I'm a fan of punny event names in general, because 1) they amuse me, and 2) it's better than every event being named [subject]-ology. To be fair, it can get a bit awkward when you're trying to sound serious and important (like on college apps), but you can almost always say something like "blah blah...

Re: Pennsylvania 2016

Does anyone have the full event-by-event results from Conestoga? Thanks!
I would also be interested in this. My old high school went, and I'd like to see how they did.
