Re: Covid-19 and Nats/States

I am hoping that we receive some sort of official guidance from the national organization soon about their cur...

Re: Carbonated Beverage Bottle

Yes. The rules require you to present the label to the ES for a reason. My experience is that people who show up with bottles from still drinks don't get allowed to compete, and get participation points only. I can't tell you how many smart water bottles i've seen. And it's so sad...:( As a State S...

Re: Superregional

I am going to point at once again that Super-Regional tournaments, while interesting as a concept, are very impractical for the vast majority of teams. Solon HS is extremely privileged in terms of the financial and travel support we receive from our district, and has an extremely large fundraiser i...

Re: 2020 Solon HS Invitational

Hi all! Will tests and medals be mailed to teams who did not stay behind for awards? We will do our best to get test packets and awards to teams who did not remain for the awards ceremony. Given that there were no weather conditions or other special circumstances, we do not generally pay to mail th...

Re: 2020 Solon HS Invitational

Will the tests be released for public access? No, we do not release the test set publicly for two reasons.

He has input on FAQs and rule clarifications, but it is collaborative decision as it is for all events.
