Ah that's a shame. I hate when your two favorite events conflict. This year at states, Hydrogeology and It's About Time conflict, so I'm a bit sad about that. Last year, when I was a 9th grader, Crave the Wave and Dynamic Planet conflicted, and the year prior had Shock Value and Water Quality conflicted.

It seems to happen quite frequently: my senior year, my two best events (Astronomy and Remote Sensing) conflicted. Luckily, I was able to medal in Astro, and Remote didn't completely tank, so that was good.

Do they always do Disease Detectives at the same time for everybody? This is my first year checking the schedules before the coaches/captains give us one personalized for our school so I wasn't sure.

I think they do.

As a side note, Crave the Wave conflicts with Dynamic Planet, and Fossils conflicts with Invasive Species for States. :cry:

That's too bad, I wanted to complain about how unfair it is but I can't if it's always been like that.

It is quite puzzling why the state of PA would not just follow the national schedule. Or, if they are following their own schedule, they should release it earlier so that students know that their events will conflict - and would therefore not study one of the events!

They could at least give every team the same conflicts too.

My little brother is in sixth grade and the B division. He did the events Fossils and Invasive Species all year long. He won states last year as a fifth grader in fossils, and won regionals this year in invasive species. He has worked since the summer on these two events - the only two events he has - just to find out that they conflict at states. He cried for hours on end. It's just so unfair how they don't release the schedule earlier!
