Just a suggestion...try and get XPD into one of the earlier slots.


The nationals schedule already *tries to do that, so I'm sure they would too :P

Anyways on a more serious note, I'm planning on going bc I want to a) help out, b) see what invites are like outside of the midwest, and c) to meet up with my awesome friends that will be there too! Can't wait for it!

*edit: I mean "tries to do that" because honestly, it'd probably be logistically impossible to fit all the ExDes teams into one slot in the morning

You're also coming because you need to try Bent Spoon ice cream because it is the best ice cream in the world I swear!

But yes I'm very excited that you're coming. And very excited to drag you to my favorite ice cream shop.

I've actually never been there either, so this may be a first for me as well. We'll give you a warm welcome!

What is this nonsense. Halo's Pub is the best ice cream place in Princeton. Saying anything else is blasphemy.

Halo Pub does not have basil ice cream, or Earl Grey tea sorbet, or blueberry mascarpone ice cream, or dark chocolate sorbet, or anything especially exciting. Thomas Sweet and Halo Pub are both perfectly acceptable places to eat perfectly ordinary ice cream, but they don't have the most amazing menu which changes practically every week where none of the flavors are anything you could have invented but they're all delicious and... I will defend my favorite ice cream place to the death, I'm sorry.

Also, ditto for Halo Pub hot chocolate - I'll drink it if I just want hot chocolate, but Bent Spoon hot chocolate is so rich and the habanero one makes my mouth water just thinking about it and that's the one I'd cross the world to find, even if there's nothing particularly wrong with Halo Pub.

(Is this discussion considered to have gone too off topic, should I not argue about this? I'm sorry...)

A few reminders to participating teams as we approach competition day:

  1. Build-event self scheduling begins on Avogadro this coming Monday (January 22) at 6 PM EST at https://app.avogadro.ws/invitational/princeton-c/.
  2. T-shirt preorders are due Tuesday January 23 at 5 PM EST and the order link is at https://goo.gl/forms/BQSfthlGUwhCit4z1.
  3. Full event schedule, team homerooms, required forms/waivers, trial events, information about food and travel, and more can be found on the Day-of page of our website: https://scioly.princeton.edu/dayof. More information will be added in the coming weeks as needed.
  4. As stated in tournament policies, we will be following regional rules for events that differentiate between different levels of competition (such as building event bonuses). Teams are limited to 15 main competitors per national standards, however any member of your school's Science Olympiad team may compete in trial events. Trial events are optional and do not count toward team scores.

We look forward to welcoming you to campus in a little over 3 weeks!!

With love,
The 2018 Princeton University Science Olympiad Team

I want to make my own but I'm too lazy to track all of them so I wanted to limit it to like the top 10 teams, anyone want to make predictions so I know which teams' medals to track?

WWPS
Montgomery
Boca Raton
Penncrest
Great Neck South
Connestoga A
Camas
Lower Merion A
Bayard Rustin A
John P Stevens A

Hopefully I hit the top 6 out of the teams listed.
