Stressful? I find it stressful leading up to it, but the day of is just my partners and me and laughing over how our epicenter is the size of Iowa, or how pencil sharpeners are nonexsitant at a college, just stuff like that. I do SO just for that laughs not medals.

REGIONALS March 14th!
SO stressed!

I actually kind of feel the same way. There is a lot of stress building up to the competition, but the competition is so much fun, I almost forget about all the stress.

It's all fun until it's your time to compete. Then you're just afraid you're going to mess up.

That's why I do study events, less pressure at the event and they don't occupy too much of your time at SO practice so you can do more events.

OMG,in NY we have sooo many teams per region! WE ARE SUCH A GOOD STATE.

And I've been looking at Ohio's regional results (the ones that are out), and that is crazy to see Mentor and Solon (two former national competitors, right?) competing against each other! I wonder which one will come out on top this time around.

I won't doubt that! :) We have about 25-40 of B and C each per region, I believe, and 6 regions.

definitely. If a test is too hard your brain can explode and you forget stuff that you learned in elementary school. Happened to me in bio. We had a test on cell respiration and it was really hard and long and so I was going though it and crying in my head and then i got to the lab part and the section itself was really easy but i could not do any of it because taking the test before it made me forget everything that i ever knew about cell respiration. It was talking about random fishies and plants and asking "Does the fishy produce CO2?" and that's a simple and obvious question that everyone should get right even without learning about cell respiration but a lot of people got that part wrong because they were so overwhelmed by the test. Most people didnt know what cell respiration was by the end of the test. Huge sigh of relief when i got the test back though - 88. not good, but not bad for an impossible test.

You most certainly can. That reminds me of Disease Detectives 2 years ago. I didnt really know much, because I had picked up the event about 2 weeks before regionals, and I was studying for my other events. My partner knew the stuff, so I wrote and he told me what to write. We got to a math problem and he said "Just put it into a proportion" and I said "...what's a proportion?"
They funny thing is, I knew what it was, but my brain was just not working. We ended up getting 9th, which wasnt terrible.
2009 events:
Fossils: 1st @ reg. 3rd @ states (stupid dinosaurs...) 5th @ nats.
Dynamic: 1st @ reg. 19thish @ states, 18th @ nats
Herpetology (NOT the study of herpes): NA
Enviro Chem: 39th @ states =(
Cell Bio: 9th @ reg. 18th @ nats
Remote: 6th @ states 3rd @ Nats
Ecology: 5th @ Nats
