There's a bit more up there but not too much, but I suppose I'll add it anyway

I wonder if the event list is in alphabetical order. If it is we may be able to guess the trials?

Between Chem Lab and Disease Detectives there are
    Circuit Lab
    Code Busters (Promising pilot)
    Code Analysis (Promising pilot)
    Compound Machine
    Designer Genes
Circuit Lab and Designer Genes are scheduled to be back in 2019, so they are likely candidates.

What can be between Helicopter and Herpetology though?

I'm okay with this. I noticed #5 on this policy - http://www.newyorkscioly.org/wp-content ... -09-09.pdf - and it reminded me of mystery design last year. My experience with NYSSO has been that information is difficult to find on the website, so trial events aren't really fair for everyone, especially if coaches aren't able to seek clarifications directly etc.

Speaking of trial events, any speculation as to what they are? Last year they were posted at the end of September I believe.

Edit: didn't see the post above but the alphabetical order idea is interesting. Sorta weird that they would know ahead of time, but not spell it out - but it wouldn't surprise me.

Huh, that's a pleasant surprise. Regionals too, not just States.

It always seemed weird to me that our trial events counted towards the score when even Nationals doesn't count them. That takes some burden off of the competitors. Especially when some of the trial events are building events, and require a lot of work.
2009 events:
Fossils: 1st @ reg. 3rd @ states (stupid dinosaurs...) 5th @ nats.
Dynamic: 1st @ reg. 19thish @ states, 18th @ nats
Herpetology (NOT the study of herpes): NA
Enviro Chem: 39th @ states =(
Cell Bio: 9th @ reg. 18th @ nats
Remote: 6th @ states 3rd @ Nats
Ecology: 5th @ Nats

I'm just worried that people might not put the effort into trial events anymore :?: even though trial events give competitiors a good preview of what may come next year

If it helps, there are three past C events that may be the first trial:
Circuit Lab
Compound Machines
Designer Genes
I'm stumped as to what the second one may be. (Between HEL and HER?)

Oh so if NYS won't be counting trial events, does that mean that Regionals and Invitationals won't be counting them as well?

That's a good point, which I think is why they made them count in the first place. But on the other hand, 23 events is already a lot. Having two extra events really makes a big difference, especially if they're tech events or events with a lot of prep (like Invasives, which requires an entire binder).

It's disappointing that we won't see much effort going into them, but the fact that alternates are now allowed to compete in them means that we might see some good participation still.

Overall, I think it's a good change.

Question: Is Indoor Bottle Rocket going to be a legitimate event or will it be a trial event? Or possible neither? Been hearing many rumors circulating throughout.
Random Fact 1: Water isn't wet. You can get wet by water, but water doesn't make water wet.
Random Fact 2: Is fire hot? Fire makes things hot, but can fire make fire hotter?

Official events are already out, and indoor bottle rocket is not on the list, but it's possible it may be a trial event or not an event at all. Trial events for NY aren't out yet, as far as I know.
2018 Events: Helicopters, Mousetrap Vehicle, Parasitology, WIDI
2017 Events: Invasives, Wright Stuff, Ecology
2016 Events: Invasives, Dynamic Planet, Crave the Wave
