So far for Div C I only found: http://newyorkscioly.org/SOPages/SouthernTierC.html
I guess you could always have your coach email email your coordinator (Dr. Daniel Brennan according to http://newyorkscioly.org/SOPages/Coordinators.html ?)
Yeah, I saw that.
I've actually emailed him, and he said that the region has no historically posted the results, and they leave it up to state director to do that, which he/she hasn't since 2011. Dr. Brennan won't be director next year, so perhaps his successor will post the results.
If they weren't posted, it's because he (Dr. Brennan) didn't ask.

You can still study if you really want to. xP You just can't compete.

Is anyone in NYS planning on attending or hoping to attend the Twin Tiers Invitational or the Yale Invitational in January? Our team is trying to decide between the two.

We have a good number of NY teams signed up already (PM me for details if you want). I'm sure Athens has their fair share of old-timers from NY (e.g., Kellenberg, Syosset). Decide quickly, because both tournaments are filling up as we speak and will likely be closed out in the next two weeks.

Honestly speaking, I'd pick based on distance and cost. I don't think it's worth dropping a ton of money to attend one over the other.

Advantage of Yale: coaches don't have to write a full event, which is usually very stressful and time-consuming on top of their full-time duties. Disadvantage: this is our first year, and while things look very good now, Murphy's law will inevitably catch up with us on competition day, though I am falling behind on schoolwork (but actually) to ensure the damages are minimal.

Advantage of Athens: they're really good at this stuff, obviously, though the veteran head coach has left. Disadvantage: exam quality may differ widely, as coaches with more experience and time will write better events than those without. (It's not Athens' fault, though, this is just the typical shortfall of the "traditional" invitational model.) For those in the NYC/LI metro area, Athens is farther than Yale.

Aww, I'd like company at Athens :P. Not tot take away from Yale at all, but yeah, YUSO probably has it right in saying distance/cost factor in the most.

I sure wish we could do more than one... We're just doing Fayetteville-Manlius because it's close and more simple.
