Is having a red-filtered flashlight important for the reach for the stars competition, and where can you buy one?

The easiest way is to take a flashlight and tape a red filter over it. You won't always need it, but even if you don't, you'll look super prepared if you have it.

For RFS, if there are 2 members in a team, do they take both tests (part 1 & 2) together?

It's totally up to you how you take a test. Usually if a test is really long you would split the test. Vice versa if the test is short.

The distinctions in the rules about ID and interpretive tasks are (in my experience) mostly just for proctors to understand the event. Both partners can take the test together (or split it up as Jaol said), and in most cases Part 1 & 2 will be in the same test.

Hello, I am a participant of this years' Reach For the Stars competition.

I was wondering if anyone has any tips on what to study, any good links or things like that to aid my in my pursuit of 1st place at the regional competition.

Thanks!

Look here for starters. Once you've gotten the basics. Go to the scioly Test Exchange and take a test or two. This event has many parts to it, so there's tons of stuff you can learn. You do have a copy of the rules, right? Before all of that, look at the rules, read every part and find out what you need to know. After that it's on you.

Cool!

I was wondering, what is everyone here's way of memorizing the stars listed in part one?

How are people going about memorizing all those names :)
