Not this year. The coach's meeting is during the Italian ice social so after the swap meet. I think they do that for supervision purposes.

And if they expect every team to swap stuff, then they know exactly how many teams will be there, so assign tables. How hard is that?
From the posted schedule -
Close of ceremonies + 1 hour Coaches Meeting UCF Arena Main Floor

I am reading that as the Coaches meeting starting at the end of opening ceremonies and running for one hour as it always has. Many teams don't stay for the ice cream social (where students would also need supervision..) plus coaches and Event Supervisors are already in one place which won't be the case after swap. I will email Mike McKee for clarification....

Thanks. That wording is confusing. I took it as it started 1 hour after the end of the ceremonies. I will be there anyway so it doesn't really matter. My kids are staying for everything.

So 9PM, main entrance, after opening ceremonies, correct?
I never got to meet any of you last year; I think infinityflat did though. I'll see if I can get him to come along (shouldn't be too hard). I'm always up for socializing, so I'll be there! :)

If you're the person who was Infinity's Disease partner (and homecoming date), then we did sort of meet, but I didn't actually tell you my name.

Always creepy Luo. Congrats.

On a side note, it was pretty hilarious to see InfinityFlat go up for the physics demonstration at the opening ceremonies last year.

OH! I think I know who you are! I've probably FB stalked you before... No worries about being creepy; we Washington kids do it on a daily basis! :P

I would come. See you guys there. Also, I'm kinda raging about paying for the stuff that is in the competition store (last year there were freebies). :(

Oh I know! No free stuff this year :( Have you seen the national shirts? They're kind of...interesting (that's girl speak for "No way would you ever see me in THAT"). This is why the girls on my team are making our own national shirts :) They're bright pink, so you should be able to spot us fairly easily...

Should we tentatively plan which table to meet up at during the swap meet? There's a map of all the tables: http://www.scienceolympiad2012.com/wp-c ... p-Meet.pdf

We could either meet up at one of the tables in the center (12-15) or at one of the tables towards the edge. What do you guys think?

Or...y'know, maybe, just maybe we can stick with Luo's original plan. Is that at all possible, do you think?

I agree. IMO we need to make it easier for majority instead of minority.

Let's stick with 9 p.m. on Friday 5/18 at the main entrance of UCF Arena. That will be convenient and easily located regardless of whether people have maps, how clearly the tables are labeled, etc.

Sounds like a plan. I'll be the girl in the ultra bright pink t-shirt and pink headband!
