Thanks I'm from St Gregory the Great.. its in BuffaloCool! Which school are you from?ahaha yes i did see that!! and i was very happy about 1-6 getting medals, it landed me 2 medals usually our school comes out with 0-1 medals, but this year we got 3! it was a very happy occasionSame. And did anybody see a person with a blue backpack wearing black clothing and a hat with a white thing that said "I'M BAWB PHAER MEH" on it?
Also, great job on the medals.
I agree- it was kind of interesting to see if you could adapt, but I thought it was weird, because before the event, the supervisor came out and was asking people if they brought their North and South Dakota maps!!Did anyone think it kind of wrong to give a different road map than what we were told? Obviously, if you have good map skills, you can apply it to any road map, but why put in time getting to know one specific map only to find out when you get there that it wasn't the one you were being tested on. If they didn't want us to know the map, then they shouldn't tell you anything. Does anyone know why that happened?
That was last year's nationals story? That's not exactly fair that people who went to nationals had already taken that test, that gives the teams that went to nationals last year an unfair advantage. it was an interesting story though. and omg the scale for the student drawn map thing was so annoying! we didnt have time to go back and re-draw ours without that scale, so we had to just leave it. ugh! although the map was switched, i did think it was interesting to use a mapquest map as well. that threw in a new and different twist, however it was not that hard, considering mapquest is supposed to be easy for people to readi also thought that was very strange to be given a different map! we were very surprised to come in to a louisiana mississippi map...
we also thought it was strange that the writer reused a story (it was last year's nationals story). AND the fact that they had the scale for the student generated map wrong! We had to completely re-do it!
