Well, based on our results, you know we did poorly. xD We forgot the formulae for, like, everything (volume, density, etc.). We were unbelievably unprepared. But on things like temperature, that insanely easy angle, and the lengths, we did fairly well. I wish I could see what I got and what I didn't so I could improve.

Yeah, giving back tests would really help for any event.

Yeah, they basically shred all of the papers the day after the tournament, no chance of getting them back.

I do remember some of the Rocks and Minerals stuff, since I graded it, and if anyone has questions about it, I'll try to answer em.

I didn't actually do Rocks and Minerals, but my friends said that they didn't have enough time.

It was a big test, it probably had too many questions; the writer cut down his 171 question monstrosity from high school states only to 160 questions, because he really didn't want to cut out too much.

Still, there's really no way to do more than 2 minutes per station with 20 stations, we were barely finishing on time as it was. Hate to sound mean, but if you can't identify the samples by sight, or at least narrow them down significantly, you're not gonna finish most stations. If you can ID it by sight, then 2 minutes is way more than enough time to answer the relatively simple questions (when I used to compete, I'd finish stations in 20-30 seconds and just stand around waiting), but if you're wasting time flipping through your binder to even have a sense of what you're looking at, then you've already lost the event.

Wow; gneissisnice, I have to say, you're truly amazing. I admire you, and that sounds freakin' weird, but I really do. I hope I can be like you when I get older. That's me talking. <3

Yeah; good luck! I wish I could go, but I'm heading off to Washington D.C. tomorrow. <3

Yup, knew NYS was competitive and would represent well this year :D. I mean, I'd hope they had done well, certainly the delivery I see here!

Congrats to all the New York teams - especially WM. Isn't 5th a record for you guys?

I see also, that NY, Ohio and Illinois all placed two teams in the top ten in both competitions. Hmmm.

Yeah, we haven't even broken top 10 since 2005. So proud of the team.

I just wish we did it while I was actually competing >.>

And clearly that's because NY is the best. And Ohio and Illinois are good too. I guess.

Amazing year for New York! Congratulations to everyone, I'm so happy that this state had a strong showing at Wright State :D

I don't think I can speak for my team, but I was nervous for awards. We had a few events we thought went really badly, and we weren't sure what to expect. I was so nervous. When we weren't ninth or tenth, my first reaction was :( But when we were called eighth, my reaction was :D

Our Disease, Rocks (1st! Mr. Vorwald was thrilled), WIDI, and Green teams recieved medals :) I was so proud of everyone, and I'm happy with my personal placings. Congrats to all, and I hope to see you next year!
