ok, i will try again. Does anyone know if we need to provide our own AAA maps for nationals? Do not write this off as a stupid girl asking a stupid question. THe writer who is writing the Nationals event is the writer who writes events for NY. It is VERY common to have to provide your own AAA maps in New York. So i would apprectiate it if anyone shares knowledge they have about whether we need to provide our own map.

AAA would mean highway. All topographic maps should be from USGS. It says in the rules that Event Supervisors are supposed to provide ALL maps for the event, so I don't think that this should be an issue. If people accidentally brought different editions of the AAA maps, an answer for a question on population would be completely wrong. I would be disappointed to find out that the Event Supervisors at nationals weren't buying the same maps for people to use.

Expect them to give you the maps there. I really think that they will, but if they don't, appeal.

I see no reason why they wouldnt provide the maps for nats. like u said, the rules say that all maps will be provided by the event suporvisers. u are allowed to take in referance material and so take a rule book and if there are different editions, show them the rules and appeal.

yes you can appeal

P.S. that doesn't sound too fair to have to provide your own maps...

Yeah, because that makes you pay to enter an event where you really shouldn't. But it's nats, so they really shouldn't. And anyway there's a thread for appeals, so any questions ask here:http://scioly.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=1089. I seem to remember a different one, but oh well.

I liked the Nationals test this year. It was challenging but not too hard.
