Geologic Mapping C [Trial]

Postby Jim_R » January 16th, 2012, 12:29 pm

Discussion for Geologic Mapping C for NY.

A link to the rules would be beneficial for all.

-Nothing\'s gonna get deleted. We\'re gonna be like three little Fonzies here. And what\'s Fonzie like? Come on, what\'s Fonzie like?
-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.

i hate new york state....

on a more serious note, is anyone's regionals offering this event? My region doesn't (but that was expected because Mid-Hudson is terrible) so I don't get any practice until states.

Usually I'd say check eBay/Amazon, but both bring up nothing. I'm thinking just using projection paper and printing an online copy onto it?

It looks like this is trying to become an extension of Road Scholar into Division C. I don't know what I think of it; I really like maps, and the topic seems really interesting, but Remote already exists and the equipment required for it looks pretty extensive.

This event looks absurdly difficult. And that's coming from someone who took Structural Geology in college.

These are mostly college-level concepts that even most of my class in college had trouble with.

Stereonets in particular are hard to understand, I would help, but most of these concepts are really difficult to explain in text without diagrams >.>
