I heard the audience was really rude about this- cheering when Ladue got second, and cheering even more when they heard it was just one point.pajobubo wrote:Kinda interested as to why Thermo got thrown out, what happened in the room and why they thought it was serious enough to toss it. It’s not like tossing events isn’t common, but still interesting to get the full scoop.
Not everyone was given thermometers. I don't see why they couldn't have just graded the test portion and not the build? Throwing out events is very uncommon for Missouri states, when there are constantly poor events run without throwing them out (see: Hydrogeology 2017 when I won the event because it was the Geologic Mapping test from the year before (although I didn't actually do Geomapping at competition besides that time I just studied for it)).
Another thing I heard was that ladue brought graphing calculators in many events that they weren’t allowed to. In optics they brought three graphing calcs instead of two.
Yeah, I kinda warned them, but...at least they didn't get disqualified
Also apparently some of my teammates are saying that Wydown cheated in Hovercraft by having shielding or whatever? Can you confirm/deny?
