I think a lot of us are in the same boat as you are :D and I'm guessing that even some of those who know they will go don't really care where it is as long as they get to go.

Our state competition was at Augusta. I dont remember too much to do around the campus, but the campus itself was fairly nice. Every event was only a close walk away...unlike DC where i had to walk 7 blocks in the pouring rain to my next event :(

PA states are at Juniata and it is in the middle of no where but the state competition at least is held very well.

Juniata does hold very high quality competitions. I had no complaints about that nationals, and I had fun despite the lack of things to do. I call it the 2nd best nationals, behind only this years GWU

You have to admit that each team having an element in a huge periodic table WAS a pretty creative idea. Yttrium!
GWU will still always be the best, however. I mean, they had the GWUSO logo on the elevators.

Haha I don't know. I went to 6 Flags in ATL and found it rather underwhelming compared to the 6 Flags in LA. Most of the rides were the same only in name, the rides themselves were toned down.

I'm certainly trying my hardest to get IUSOS (the IU SO club that helps out at a bunch of competitions in Indiana and elsewhere) to find a way to help out at nationals this year (and following years). But it is after school ends and we would have to stay over night on little or no budget, I'm not entirely sure it is going to work. I'm obviously out of SO as well but I still want to go.

Yttrium! And I agree about GWU, except whoever told me it was "kind of raining" and not that it was a tsunami with water coming out of the drains instead of going in really needs to evaluate their grip on reality.
