Definitely more in the middle of the US than ASU was, never been there before, so it should be fun

I think that bridge builders will definitely like it a lot more. Less humidity.

Quite right! And it definitely won't be as rainy as it was in Georgia. if anything, maybe a little colder.

It is a great campus...good venue. The 2005 tournament there was nice.

Plus it is less than a 4 hour drive for me :D

the campus is beautiful, and most events are held close together... states is so much fun there, and there is a nice green area, close to the homerooms to relax between events

Most of the events are conveniently close. Some of the earth science events are a couple blocks away...and are in buildings not on the maps they gave us. (at least at state this year.)
