I talked to Michels yesterday. The prospects at this moment of getting a full team this year are bleak. :?

Well that sucks.

We're hoping to start a middle school team, but we'll have to see how logistics work.

Hoping that schedules (for both Wisconsin and Minnesota) come out soon so we can start formulating teams! If I recall correctly, Minnesota's schedule was posted in mid-September last year, but Wisconsin's didn't come out until October 9th.

I'm assuming you saw that the Minnesota schedule is already up. I might be able to go to River Falls. Although that is a long drive.

I do unfortunately have a final on the day of Boyceville, so that's not going to happen. :(

I see the registration forms, but not the schedule... I got really excited for a moment there :P

w00t, I hope you can make it to River Falls! :) That would be pretty awesome.

Just go to the website and click "calendar." All the dates seem legit. And yes, I will try to get to River Falls.

Oh, haha, I was referring to the competition schedule (i.e. for event conflicts) - that doesn't seem to be up yet, unfortunately.

River Falls is on the same day as the South Sub conference tournament. :x I'm kinda sad because I loved the rocks test at RF and the invite overall was nicely done. And the food was good... but I'm a swimmer so all food is good.

3 people were at the meeting yesterday!

I'm a bit disappointed that they're only allowing three teams per school at River Falls this year - it means that a lot of our members won't be able to compete. I noticed on the Boyceville Invitational website that Boyceville is fielding six teams this year. :shock: Holy cow.

Also, according to the Wisconsin state website, there's going to be an invitational at Madison West High School this year...on the same day as Boyceville. I'm a little perplexed as to why Madison West would choose the same date; it would seem to me that participation in both invitationals would be increased if Madison West had decided to host theirs on a different day.
