ya... but on the science olympiad website.... there is a llist of the projected events for 2009-2010..... and it says on there... SCB (envi. chem. topic)... so i think it will be an event... plus the fact that they just started the event last year.... and usually they continue an event for 2-3 yrs... and then replace it with another event for a couple yrs... and then they bring it back again... i hope that they have this event next year... i really enjoyed it...

It was my worst event, but I somehow managed 2 medals (easy tests).

Did you skip over what I said? If you look at the NEWEST EDITION of the projected events list they have dropped the enviro chem topic. I recognize that enviro chem thing being the topic, as I saw the previous list myself. But the new list doesn't include it. It is:
http://soinc.org/sites/default/files/uploaded_files/2010Chart6-8-2.pdf It was updated 2 weeks ago, while the one you were thinking of was published in April.

well he is technically right this is the updated chart and thus it is more accurate but we will have to wait until the rules come out for the official verdict.

Well yes, of course ( :roll: ). I'm just going with this because I don't think they'll put out another update before the publication of the manual. I just really hope they keep this out, because I would be forced to do it again. And in response to the earlier thing about 1 year only, I thought that it would be 3 years with the topic rotation of soil, air and water, as food science went 3 years. But there are events like mystery architecture that stayed for 1 year. It didn't surprise me when it wasn't on the tentative list, as I really think this was a fairly unpopular and overall too general event (there are exceptions obviously), so it looks like it's getting replaced.

I think it is getting replaced so they can expand on the rules they were to vague. You learned all they had in the rules but on the test it was completely different, so it was to random also. So they probably took it out to build on the topic and expand the rules. Make them more clear basically.

That was what I meant when I said over-generalization. The rules were extremely un-specific and they somehow managed to make the tests more random. Does anyone know if CEC was listed in the rules? I had questions about it on the regionals test (thankfully I didn't have to calculate it), but had never heard of it.

Yeah that PA states test was weird, where we shared info. The fill-in the blank sheet was the only hard part.

That guy was wacked man he was all like okay this okay that. The seperating of the tests for each team wackier. I only thought that one calcullation about tomatoes was hard i got 14th in that event though.
