Welcome to scioly.org, my Sounds of Music partner! :D

I have a qestion myself. I believe my team and I are going to Ohio on Thursday, and leaving Sunday morning. How long is anyone else planning to stay?

Same as you guys, Thursday to Sunday. I'm kinda disappointed, since last year we left school on Tuesday, and left at midnight on Saturday/Sunday. But I guess we might be saving money for next year, where its in Orlando again...

I REALLY wish I could, unfortunately I doubt our team can stay an extra day for it.

It's fun! You get to experience a longer overnight trip, and get to go to events such as the Swap Meet. It's the best of nationals, without the stress over competing :D

Perks over being a competitor on the team, or perks over not being on the team at all?

You also can compete in the trial events I believe.

Rotor Egg Drop at Nationals is at Russ Lobby & 144 at Wright State. Does anyone know if this is indoors or outdoors? How tall is the drop height?
Maybe they used the same location at the Wright State Invite?
