Ahhhh!!!! So many active Idaho users! When I was involved in Science Olympiad years ago, I was the only one really. So glad to see everything growing :)

I'm on the Board of Directors for the Idaho Science Olympiad, and let me tell ya, we can't wait to welcome you to BSU for the first time! Its my hope that even though its our first time at a new campus that there won't be too many kinks come competition day. We've been busy since last summer trying to get everything in line and prepared, so fingers crossed!

A little about me: I've been involved in science Olympiad since my first event(reach for the stars) back in 2004. Competed for Bishop Kelly at Nationals every time(back during the dynasty). Now I'm going on almost a decade of being the Dynamic Planet Event Supervisor and this year I was personally involved in creating/preparing/reviewing Dynamic Planet, Road Scholar, Fast Facts, Anatomy and Physiology, Solar System, Crime Busters, Meteorology, Herpetology(I'm actually doing the formatting of the sheets for the stations today so that setup goes easier this Friday), and possibly Astronomy(I'm the backup test writer as we wait for the Astronomy test to come in. Literally the last one that needs to be accounted for.) Going from a single event supervisor to being involved in so many events was hectic, but super exciting at the same time!

Do you all have any questions about the tournament this weekend? I obviously can't say anything test content related, but as a graduate of Boise State, I know the campus inside and out!

Bishop Kelly will be back in action this weekend to try to claim the trophy after getting second last year :cry: I had no idea there was an Idaho grad on here.

It wasn't an accident. No offense, but I think TVHSOT's high school team is strong this year, seeing how they won the Nebo Invitational this year at their first ever invite.

8-) We're ready for a fight this year Bishop Kelly, quite excited to see how y'all do. My team is ready to compete on Saturday and just all around excited to see who comes on top.

Also it's so cool to know there's an Idaho grad here! I'm quite excited to see how the Herpetology test is run, hoping it'll be good. Shame we aren't at Northwest Nazarene this year though, we could of had actual specimens! Although to be fair taking Invasives in that room was a struggle for me, too many cool animals to wanna look at. :P

That's our hope to eventually get to that point! This is our first year at Boise State, so there might be a few growing pains as we get the feel for a new campus and receive more support as time goes on!

Since it's the night before, let me wish you all the best of luck and let me know if there's anything we can do to make it better for competitors after this is all said and done!
