No, but they will be posted when they are announced.

The Bylaws and Policies have been posted on the state website, so I'll be going through them and seeing if there are any interesting tidbits. I think this may be the first time that these policies have been publicly posted.

I've heard vague rumours that Athens is the 19th*...If that's true, it'd be quite nice to not have Athens and Stoga on the same day for once (it would also be good for me personally, since I probably won't be able to attend any invitational on the 12th).

*DISCLAIMER: THIS IS NOT CERTAIN BY ANY MEANS.

And wth, Central...April 6th for Regionals? Not cool; that leaves less than three weeks between Regionals and States! I like my Regionals in late March, yes, but c'mon, April?

I like Article V in the By-laws. Though it's highly unlikely that PASO will ever cease to function with money left in the treasury.
I never knew that there is such thing as a Home-School team, and it's surprising that they allow 5th graders to participate on the middle school team, but does not state whether a middle school student can participate on the high school team.
Pretty cool that in the General Scoring Policy, it says that excessive vulgar language can result in a DQ, though I haven't seen or heard of anything like that yet.

Has anyone started working yet? There are 177 days until the Southeast Regionals.

Out of curiosity, are there any teams that are going to Comet?

Abington Heights and J.T. Lambert are probably going. I'm not sure about others. I think Gelinas was there last year.

Were you there last year? It's a very nice invitational, even when it's snowy and cold. :D

Nice, I might have seen you there and not realized it. Even though I probably won't be there this year, good luck! :)

However, I do know that there are others on this site who are probably going, even though they haven't replied yet.

I am most certainly excited to be going again. I really liked the difficulty of the tests, as it made Regionals seem like almost nothing. Though I still don't understand how to do well in Fermi.

Excited for the competition, not excited to have to be at school at 3 AM to get there on time...this is the second time we've gone and the last time I was a freshman so I didn't compete. Should be fun.

I understand how you feel, though I don't have to be there that early, jeez that's early.
