That did not happen last year. As long as it was rotating, the device was considered good. If it ran out while up, they stopped the time, but as long as it dislodged while still rotating, the device was considered good. Super frustrating.

I am not sure how it will work this year in regards to the rules. The Invitationals have all been handled differently, although it has been nowhere near the issue that it is at States. The best thing to do is move the event and avoid the game of chance that is played with that event. In a state like Ohio, every point matters and having a wild card out there can really impact placement results. Oh well! Time will tell and everyone will deal with it if there is no change of venue. At least we are all in the same boat.

I would think the logistics of all the events are all pretty well nailed down. If not, I would not wait to make a request. Making schedules and reserving locations happen many weeks in advance for any event at OSU.

We know someone who made a request and it was denied and the event supervisor indicated that it was the first time they had heard anyone suggest the Field House was an issue for helicopters. It was made clear that a change of venue will not happen and that they do not see the need for a move. Let's just hope that the rules are followed and the time stops as appropriate.

Yup, the forty-eight foot tall slanted roof support beams everywhere field house is better to fly in than a racquetball court.

I think that part of the problem is that no one is expressing their concerns over the helicopter issue at the field house at OSU. If more teams were to express concern, perhaps a change would be made. Is anyone willing to request a change of venue? If so, I encourage you to do so ASAP so that perhaps a change could be made in timely manner.

Yup, you don't even need to bring binoculars to be able to time efficiently!

How's about a petition?
I think that would get their attention. They would see how we really hate the field house.

Not sure how to do a petition, but would be interested in it if enough people would support it . . .

If nothing else, start the wheels in motion for next year. I really can't see them making a change with only 3 weeks between now and states.

Why not run Helicopters in a classroom?

Chattahoochee High School Class of 2018
Georgia Tech Class of 2022
