Raw Scores from FAU Regionals were released. I know a few people who were waiting for them badly.

Notes:
Formatting on the file is pretty bad. You have to click past Divison B sheets to see Division C.

Also, I just wanted to discuss the facts about the regional comp. A few events had tests that had too few questions and were too easy. For example, green generation about 10 teams scored the same raw score. And it was a one point difference between 15th and 5th which is pretty bad. You can see other events with similar issues. Overall, I do not know if it was just because our team was better prepared, but the event quality at FAU this year was lower than usual. Also, in most events there was some fierce competition for top 6 places in events. There were mere questions/points separating 1-6th in most events.

Florida State Tournament Schedule is out!

I am not very happy with this schedule :( . For some reason, they thought that putting two ID events at the same time slot would be a good idea. I understand that they are in different categories (geology/life sciences) but they involve very similar skills. I can not be the only person who has put significant effort into specializing in ID events uhhhh. Guess I will have to pick up something else to do at states then.....

I am a little surprised they did this. The florida state director is pretty involved in scioly nationally (presented me with one of my national medals) so I would suspect the florida state schedule is quite similar if not the same as the national schedule. Not a problem for me specifically, but still a problem in general...

Still a bit confused in the schedule decisions. Microbe mission and ecology in the same block feels just weird to justify too. I'm debating on asking the director directly about his motivation in changing the schedule so much.

The only possibility I can think of is that it has to do with event supervisor availability, but it doesn't look like it from the schedule. Just be glad your schedule comes out so early; almost no states have a schedule out this early. Here in Georgia it's considered unusual to get a schedule more than four weeks before the tournament date.
