Agreed. Love how the event supervisor was just like "oh yeah the test might be too long".

240 questions of what type? Multiple-choice or so isn't too bad.

It was a mix of multiple choice, true/false, and free response. imo the stations format is what made it hard, especially on some of the tougher and longer stations.
I do the Optics laser shoot with 1 mirror.

All of this while I was doing the entire event pretty much alone. *shuddering intensifies*

Actually no. The primary reason was that the first time block ended up with about 15 minutes less time to complete everything due to getting started late.


We didn't get all of our CB sheets back unfortunately, and those that wrote their analysis on the second page didn't get it scored either.

Other test thoughts? We had trouble with the tape in Mystery Architecture.

Those are always the best - there is nothing quite as valuable as predictions without much data. I'll break out my crystal ball, tea leaves, and weather rock!

Any idea when/if the build event scoresheets will be released to tournament teams? Seems like they have only released study/lab event tests/keys.

Not sure what you mean? Everything that the event supervisors turned in to scoring was immediately packed into the individual team packets. There aren't any other documents floating around.

Sorry, I mean digital versions that were released to teams via Google Drive. Most of the files have been uploaded, but the scoring sheets for events like Battery Buggy and Towers that have mass, time, distance, etc. raw scores for all the teams have not.
