i'm just gonna ask if they are going to put up the building event scores. They are obviously not, it's been over a week, but it can't hurt right?
When i was there, i asked the ES of Bridge if the scores were gonna be online and he said that he was going to give the scores to whoever was in charge in doing so (idr who he said)
I tried to contact them, asking if they would post the best time for It's About Time on the website. Never got a reply or have seen it posted. :(

VERY VERY INTERESTING: http://www.newyorkscioly.org/SOPages/Events.html NY never had pilot events before (or at least i don't belive so) or distinguised between trial and pilot.
any comments?

Actually, I believe Car of Tomorrow and Sumo Bots are both pilot events, because I am pretty sure pilot events are just like trial events, only building, and trial events are academic. Anywho, I am extremely excited about helicopters, not that I necessarily live in NY, internets! *shifty eyes*
EDIT: I posted before I clicked your link :oops: . Next time I should reverse that order :D

Given your edit, I assume you realized this, but just to clarify: Trial events count toward your score and must be done by team members, while pilot events don't count toward your score and can be done by anyone in the school.

Yep - NY has never had a "pilot" event as far as I know. "Trial" events are the same as regular events in essence. "Pilot" events seem to be events that don't count.

Now is there any limit as to the amount of 'teams' from each school are allowed to compete in this new pilot event. It seems to be that anyone from the school can compete and doesn't have to be on the team. I wonder because alternates can compete in trial so it seems anyone from the school can compete in the pilot event so long as their school attends the competition.

And they don't have the SumoBot rules up yet so I'm assuming they are finally going to change them. They should have changed the parameters more last year such as size and weight just so the same designs can't be used again.

the whole point of a pilot event is to see if the event works. helicopter is beining disscused to be an actuall event in a few years and to make sure it works they are letting anyone compete and not count towards the overall score.
Now my question is: for arguments sake say that my school has 3 teams. If i compete in helicopter for the B team (i can b/c it doesnt' HAVE to be alternates, it just can) can i also compete in it for the C and A team?

It's unclear, but since your score wouldn't count toward the overall score of any of the teams, it's kind of irrelevant... I don't know how they'll actually run it, but my guess is that as many pairs from each school as want to will be able to enter the event, without any specific team affiliation.
