No one has the rules yet. Well, the directors/event supervisors do, but that's it. You do know that the rules aren't even able to be purchased until tomorrow, right?

That's not true, you can purchase them through the official soinc webstore right now. Here's the link for Division B: http://store.soinc.org/p-13-2012-rules- ... ion-b.aspx

Let me rephrase that - they don't ship until tomorrow.

Also not entirely true. Some of them already shipped. I got mine delivered on Friday (of course I also probably am near the top of the list when it comes to whose gets shipped in what order).

A general suggestion to Div B students: if possible talk to members on your high school's science olympiad team, as they have already done this event last year. You may be able to learn some very useful tips and tricks.

I'm so excited :D But the problem is I can't seem to set the traps I got... They're the Victor mouse traps w/o the fake cheese triggers. Any help?
