? I thought the limit was 30 per tournament?Actually, according to the state directors, NJIT was entirely full and UCC was even over capacity by two teams. My school, which usually goes to UCC, was sent to Camden this year because they really just did not have room at UCC. If we are to expand how many teams do Science Olympiad in NJ, we really need to open another regional competition.Looking at this year's scoresheets, every regional had quite a few open spots! NJIT had 10, Camden had 5 and Union was 8 short of the 30 max.
I think it's 20 per tournament, except for Camden which can have more because it's on a Saturday.? I thought the limit was 30 per tournament?
Then is the quota different for each tournament? That's really weird then
NJIT had 20 teams, Camden had 25 and Union had 22...
Another tournament would make things easier. I wonder how other states open up new tournaments so easily, someone teach us pls xD
Hm that's disappointing But how would new teams even know about our State organization dilemma from this year? This year was quite an anomalyWoah, so nice to see so many people from NJ active on Scioly, even a month after States.
Regarding expanding the NJ SO program, I personally don't think it's likely next year. For one thing, this year's State tournament was poorly run, and I'm sure that would discourage new teams or even existing teams from participating. Especially with limited budgets, I'm sure schools that usually have low interest in SO (like those that leave the award ceremonies early) would naturally choose competitions that are better organized, and therefore more rewarding to the students. According to the Scioly page for state team numbers (linked below), New Jersey has seen declining numbers of registered teams. Especially after this year, I would expect to see further decline.

I'm not aiming to be the pessimist here, but if you guys are planning take on the heavy burden of expanding NJ SO (as I think nxtscholar here is wiling to lift mountains to expand NJ SO ) just some considerations for you to think about.
