However, please know that there isn't some sort of blanket prohibition from the National office on releasing tests back to teams. So if you think this is truly something important, please consider talking to tournament supervisors about the possibility (just don't do it the day of the tournament... they are way too busy then). Also keep in mind that returning the tests requires significant labor. At the WSU Invitational we just ran, it took almost as much manpower to sort out all the tests and stuff them in the appropriate envelopes as it did to actually enter the scores into the scoring system.
Another topic. Has there every been any discussion about how many teams from Ohio go to Nationals? Similar to sports where stronger conferences that consistant finish high, they seem to get more qualifers into NCAA basketball and bowl games, etc. Ohio High school wrstling does it as well. Just a question. Please don't think I just a rebel with these questions. I love SCIOLY. Thanks
Wlsguy is right, they basically do that because it's not necessarily fair if a state with 582 teams [which means a lot more competition] (NY) sent the same amount of teams as a state with 13 teams (AK). And even though +1 team isn't a huge difference, it at least gives some cushion.
