A functional Ultimate tournament would be nice though.

Not sure where else to put this: Chalker's Scoring System just got updated for 2017. Downloads spiked quite a bit (more downloads in the last six hours than in all of August).

All I did was change the event names to match the current season. No other changes to the system from before.

Yeah, but we're too lazy to do that ourselves, so I guess that's why people started downloading.

One thing I'd like to mention on here that I don't remember seeing on the thread for last year's nationals, was the music played at the opening and awards ceremonies. I normally dislike the type of music they played (pop), but I really enjoyed it at awards; I wasn't at the 2015 national tournament but I did watch the stream and I can say it would have been easier to watch with something to fill the void in the background. I also liked how a different song was played for each different event. I'd like to see these again at the 2017 awards ceremony.

Agreed; the music last year was great; timing, mood, was all spot on. The opening and awards video recordings were also really well-done (can't speak for the livestream since I didn't watch it :P ).

Anything to make the awards ceremony more exciting would be cool. The atmosphere they created last year with the music was great, it made everything feel bigger and more important. The camerawork for the livestream was really good as well, it almost felt like I was there.

Definitey agree. I attended both 2015 and 2016 Nationals, and I felt 2016 did a better job of organizing the tournament and creating a good atmosphere in general. The free outdoor wifi all over campus was also appreciated. Hope that Wright State will keep up the good work this year.

Quick question: anyone know if state schedules always line up with the national schedule? Like, if I do event A and B at states and they're in different blocks are they guaranteed to be in different blocks at nationals also?
