Haha, I'm also majoring in geology! But this event nearly steered me away from it...at least structural, that is. But really, looking back at Geologic Mapping, I really overestimated it. It's not as hard as everyone said it was [including me] and once you get the hang of the stereonet problems, they're quite simple.

Structural Geology really isn't that bad. From what I've seen, this event is actually a lot more involved than a real college Structural class. Most of the Structural labs I did involved doing stereonets, so you already have experience with one of the more difficult things in the class. I got an A in Structural, it wasn't so bad.

Also, it's nice to see more geology majors, there are like 30 of us total at my school >.>
2009 events:
Fossils: 1st @ reg. 3rd @ states (stupid dinosaurs...) 5th @ nats.
Dynamic: 1st @ reg. 19thish @ states, 18th @ nats
