I'm assuming that Allendale will be run in Division C, even though it isn't posted?

Also, the plan is to run an invitational at UMich this year as well. The date and division(s) should be decided within the next week or so I believe.

I'm coaching at Allendale. Yeah, the invitational will be run.

Geez oh man... We already had four invitationals planned. We may need to drop one :P

The club got started over the summer (I was not involved in forming the club) and from what I can tell the plan is to host this year. We have to register our invitational with the state within the next week or so I believe. I recommended a time in earlier January (January 13?) to the founders of the club, but obviously there is a lot that goes into whether or not a particular day will work.

Source Code will officially be replacing Game On at the state tournament: http://miscioly.org/2018-source-code-ev ... formation/

This decision only applies to the state tournament; regional competitions may still decide to run Game On as an official event.

I'm part of MSU's Science Olympiad club, so I will hopefully be helping to run some events at state. Although I've competed in Scioly for 7 years in IL, is there anything I should know about how Michigan's Scioly tournaments are versus those of other states?

I'd guess Michigan is pretty similar to Illinois. Anything in particular you're wondering about?

It'll be interesting to see how this plays out: apparently Region 15 isn't having a tournament this year. Teams in the region will be sent to other tournaments. Not sure how exactly they are assigning the new tournaments for the teams.

Does anybody know where to find Source Code practice tests?

The Portage Northern invitational was today. I don't remember all of the results, but here's what I remember:
1. Ann Arbor Pioneer
2. Allendale
3. Troy Athens (EDIT: confirmed)
4. Forest Hills Central
5. Don't remember (EDIT: 90% sure Portage Central)
6. Forest Hills Central

5th for Troy Athens would make more sense (though still a pretty good result for them).

Yeah, I can't 100% remember which was which. Many teams didn't have their builds done for both of their teams, and since it is early on, many did not stack teams.

The competition seemed to be very well run from my viewpoint (as an observer). The competition level was much better than last year, when they had only 12 teams, but obviously not near the level of Frankenmuth, West Ottawa, etc. Ann Arbor Pioneer and Forest Hills Central were probably the best two teams there based on what I saw during the awards ceremony. It's very early on, but that would follow with last year's States results. Pioneer seemed especially dominant, and it seemed that neither totally stacked their teams.

No official scoresheet was released, so unfortunately I have no further information on scores yet.

EDIT: Confirmed Troy Athens got 3rd place. 90% sure it was Portage Central in 5th.

Pretty sure they did get 3rd, I was impressed by their results too.

EDIT: I updated my personal results for this year, hopefully I can get a less annoying streak going. ;)
