Does anybody have any updated Green gen tests for 2016? I've only been able to find ones from 2015 (that cover aquatics). Thanks

With the invitationals season going strong I think the Test Exchange will get some new tests from the recent invitationals that cover terrestrial issues.

If nothing has changed since last year, it's one reference paper (front and back).

I competed in this event at the national competition last year, but hadn't ever studied for this event before April of 2015 (As you can guess that didn't go over very well). No one on my national team had done this event (my coach reassigns the team based on state performance which is strange). But, after only 1 month of somewhat preparation, I got 41st in this event which was one of our teams best events (we got 54th overall...). The event was run very smoothly, and the supervisor was super nice. I wish I could do it again this year. :(

I'm surprised by how small of a font everyone uses. When everyone else sees my notes (Size 4.5 and 6 depending on part) in Arial Narrow their eyes pop.

I think the record smallest I've ever seen was a size two font. I usually shoot for four or six.

OK, storytime. I was also doing Invasive Species for regionals, and while my home printer isn't great and I used the library's printer for everything I could, the night before came around and I decided I needed a few more pages on things. So I printed those out and came to the conclusion that I wouldn't be able to get another page out. To make it all better, I realized that I had left the Green Gen page at the library. SO, I hand-wrote it. All of it. In a few hours. My partner was sick and sleeping so I didn't want to bother him before the big day, and I don't know if I've ever had such terrible hand cramps as the ones I got from doing that. Font size? More like looking at the study page made other people cringe in pain. disclaimer I learn really well from just writing stuff down, we scored first, I only had to reference notes once
