I look forward to seeing you tomorrow!

On a separate note, an updated SOSI schedule was recently posted. There are a couple event changes. Any idea what "Buoyancy" would involve? No trial rules posted on SOINC.

Buoyancy is also known as Buoy oh Buoy if that's of any help. At my most recent invitational, it was also known as Density.

I think Buoyancy is the same as Density Lab, which I believe is in the soinc.org trial section

I don't have the scoresheet, nor do I know whether it's been sent out yet (I suspect not). Also, I forgot to post the results:

1. Fulton Science Academy
2. McCleskey
3. Autrey Mill
4. Taylor Road
5. River Trail

All of the above qualify for state. Interestingly, Chamblee did not manage to qualify. Based on medal tallies, River Trail was definitely split, and the same is likely true for Taylor Road - I expect stronger state performances. FSA's second team almost certainly finished in 2nd overall, based on the medals at least.

From Georgia Tech:

1. GSMST
2. Walton?
3. Wheeler

And one more team qualifying for state, though I don't know who it is.

There has been some bias against our team in regionals. First, the wright stuff was delayed by 40 minutes, and the event supervisors called our team last. Then, after the judge called our team done and said that they could leave,and our coach escorted a student that was late for an event by 25 minutes while leaving the other partner to pack his stuff up. The student going to the other event was late for 25 minutes, and after the coach voiced her concerns, they got some extra minutes. Afterwards, the event supervisor (who will probably be at the state competition) called the coach and said that since the other partner wasn't there, that the people doing Wright Stuff were disqualified. It is confusing, but it shows that in state, we may not have a fair judgement there.

Has anyone experienced that or knows people who do that sort of thing?

Score sheet shows no DQs for Taylor Road in any event. Looks like you got an 11th and a 13th in Wright Stuff. A no show would be scored a 14, a DQ would be scored as 15.

Predictions for this weekend's regionals. As usual, I'm predicting up to my expected maximum possible number of state bids.

UNG-Gainesville B:
1. Dodgen - The pretty clear front-runner. If they get unlucky or Vickery Creek gets lucky the two might switch places, but based on what results we have so far (literally only Chattahoochee) I think that's unlikely.
2. Vickery Creek - Although they got a new coach, they've continued to still do pretty well this year - I very much doubt Crews could beat them.
3. Crews - Top 10 at state for the last three years and being a Brookwood feeder definitely helps. I'm sure they'll be 3rd or 4th.
4. Riverwatch - They did fairly well last year at regionals, primarily losing to Crews because they didn't stack; if they remain as strong they should be able to finish at least this high.

Georgia Southern B:
1. Richmond Hill - This regional is rather hard to predict. Richmond Hill is the only recent state qualifier that I can see here, having finished 18th at state last year.
2. Davidson Fine Arts - They intermittently qualify for state, although I'm not certain if they'll beat Irwin County, who I consider the next best here.

Middle Georgia State C:
1. Brookwood - Brookwood is always the safe bet. They tend to have more success than Chattahoochee at local tournaments since they tend to have more depth and infrequently bomb events (as opposed to competitive invitationals and Nationals, where it's generally more likely for Chattahoochee to come out ahead). There hasn't been any compelling reason to predict them lower so far.
2. Chattahoochee - A pretty easy second place pick - based on invitationals, I wouldn't be surprised if both the Brookwood and Chattahoochee B teams finish ahead of everyone else.
3. Parkview - A historically good team that failed to qualify for state last year after pitting themselves against five other 2016 state qualifiers for 3 bids. They finished rather highly at Brookwood this year, so should be in the running for 3rd or 4th.
4. Thomas County Central - A somewhat forgettable team that's still very good - they also failed to qualify for state last year after piling up with a bunch of other good teams at GPC (though they actually finished ahead of Parkview). I think they should be able to hold off everyone else.
5. North Springs - I debated between them and Davidson Fine Arts for this spot, the latter of whom was within a few points of beating the former at regionals last year. I settled on North Springs because of their invitational experience, though from what I've heard they've lost a fairly strong class.

Anyone else willing to make some predictions? (even if they're not this detailed :P )
