Re: Helicopters B

Marie Murphy's copter got around 2:35 in room with a 12' ceiling at regionals.
I don't know what happened at states, probably an issue with the armory ceiling.

Re: Will You Make it to Nationals?

I still can't imagine anything beating the tension when our school (newish to SO and never appeared at Nats) was announced as tied for second with Marie Murphy. It was ridiculous; I still can't believe it. Congratulations to you for making it, Tom.

Re: Unofficial Rankings C

Are the visiting teams i.e. Japan scored with the US teams? How have they done in the past?

Re: Unofficial Rankings B

How to medal points work with the dropped events? Shouldn't zeros be 40ths or 41sts?

Re: Unofficial Rankings B

Interestingly enough many unexpected things are happening. Alongside SAA taking the second Illinois spot, it appears Beckendorff took second to Riverwood in Texas this year.

Re: Unofficial Rankings C

Poor Bbbeast. You lost a half cent. :cry: But, Centerville lost to Solon High by only 5 points! 73-78. This means I still think they will beat Solon at nats. Yeah, I had faith in Mentor too :\. And in comparison, Solon had a team score of 52 points at states last year. That just shows how much hard...

I find that I am almost the most relaxed pers...
