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
