That logic is flawed.

But good luck with that anyways! :D

Rockets was canceled for us at invites, but it'll probably have to be extreme snowing/temp conditions for it to get cancelled at an official competition. I know my freshman year it was like rediculously cold outside (like -10F) at regionals and they still did rockets in div B.

Yeah I was doing bottle rockets at IUN that year in B division. It was -16 degrees. They had no form of anti-freeze or anything so everyone's rockets kept freezing to the launch pad and loosing a substantial amount of water just trying to get the rocket connected to it with our frostbitten fingers. That is until Griffith was about to go and they brought the launch pad in, put hot water on it and blow dried it, leaving Griffith with a clean launch pad and a first-place medal. Good thing it was only regionals.

So how are people's regionals going? I read that Riley beat Northridge at invites but haven't heard much other than that.

We have 13 days until regionals still (and more importantly 41 until state!). It looks like our building events are coming together now (or at least beginning to exist in some events). I'm getting excited.

The new state schedule annoys me a little though (hopefully we'll be even like we've been every year before).

The state schedule didn't change that much, did it? I don't think the changes really affected our team any. We'll have to adjust a little once we get our number, but overall I don't think the schedule will mess us up a whole lot. It would be nice if we were even, but it isn't going to happen. Bloomington North is always first in alphabetical order. We can handle it--whatever.

Don't remind me that our regionals is only 6 days away--that's horrifying. I think that every year it feels like a shorter time before regionals, even though we've been working since the end of September. It may be because many people are doing some of the same events for the second or third year in a row and it gets more difficult to learn new things.

Whatever happens, this should be an exciting year!

Indiana has had some regionals already and I am curious to know what the highest flight times in Wright Stuff have been?

Thanks.

Yeah, our regionals is in three days and I have a ridiculous amount of stuff to do for some events. It's a pretty busy week.

I think if we're odd, there's something like 6 extra conflicts that are annoying; and I'm not sure of how they'll work out. We've been even like every year before, so we're all expecting irony to decide this year we'll be odd because that's how things always seem to work.

Does anyone have results from today's regionals? I would assume they will be posted soon, but I'm anxious to know what happened.

Even :) . Generally, we were pleased. I'm competing in Herpetology, Forensics, and Tech Trek for state. I don't know how I ended up with only three events, but I'm still working on Junkyard, I'm just not competing in it.

I'd think that he would have received it by now. They still haven't put the teams online, though. Maybe they're waiting until the wildcard tournament.

I'll be doing ecology, herpetology,....enviro chem, and egg-o-naut (sigh). Not my favorite set of events for my last tournament but I'll do my best.

Indiana regionals at Butler
I think 14 teams participated at 2009 regional at Butler and top 4 teams advance to state
B divison
1. Tri North
2. Jackson Creek
3. Sycamore
4. I cannot remember the 4th place team sorry.

I did Reach for the Stars, Meteorology, Bridge and Anatomy (B division for everything)
For Meteorology, i don't really know what the problems was because my partner and i got most of the questions right and my coach is trying to contact the coordinator. For Bridge, with the ratio of a little bit over 600, i got gold. For Reach for the Stars, by 2 pts, i got 2nd place. Reach for the stars was challenging because we had to identify stars, constellations and deep sky objects from the planetarium without Flashlights. For anatomy, i got 3rd but there was one or two questions that were not in the study guide.
