Sumo Bots C trial for Ohio

-Cool?
-Correctamundo. And that\'s what we\'re gonna be. We\'re gonna be cool. Now, I\'m gonna count to three, and when I count three, you let go of your mouse, and back away from the keyboard. But when you do it, you do it cool. Ready? One... two... three.

Ohio??

That's kind of funny since Ohio was one of the states where it was run as a trial event last year instead of a regular event
Only 16 of the 40 teams at the State competition participated.

I think this is an actual event for VA, according to the draft schedule.

Likely. I am 99.9% sure we will NOT be running Sumo Bots in Ohio this year.

http://www.virginiaso.com/Events.php doesn't list Sumo as one of Virginia's added events. Interestingly, Virginia is dropping Remote Sensing, but is not adding a different event in its place.

Sumo is, however, being run as a trial in Wisconsin, where trials count for points just like national events.

I should clarify: it won't be at the State tournament. Invitationals and regionals can do as they please with regards to it.

Was it too cost-prohibitive, chalker?

It's a combination of things - scheduling issues, not being a national trial event, the cost to teams, and the challenge in finding enough supervisors to run all the events

I know; what I'm saying is that trial events are counted towards the team score on equal footing with national events in the state of Wisconsin. New York does the same thing.
