Per this, it appears that team numbers won't be posted until April. There are a few other documents that were added recently, but I didn't notice anything unusual in those.

Hey guys! So my team has a good chance on making it to nats this year and I was just wondering about the costs of it all since the website has no info. Do the host universities provide housing/food and if so how much does it typically cost. We want to start planning finances ASAP so that everyone has time to save.

Generally teams can either stay in hotels, or stay in the dorms and buy a meal plan (prices vary significantly if I remember correctly, but in the years I've paid attention this tends to have been the cheaper option). Depending on travel costs, it'll probably end up at around $300-500 per person.

Hello Scioly!

I am a student at Fossil Ridge High School from Fort Collins Colorado, and I wanted to offer myself up to answer questions regarding CSU, its campus, and Fort Collins in general. As I have lived here my entire life, I am pretty well connected throughout the town and can give advice regarding food, lodging and things like that if you are trying to plan your trip and are finding the website difficult. I am aware that information regarding this tournament has been slow going, but I assure you that it will get better with time, and that Colorado State Science Olympiad will try to put on an incredible tournament that will be a positive experience for everyone attending.

The teams that have most often and most recently represented Colorado at nationals (My school, Fossil Ridge and my former middle school, Preston Middle School) are all from Fort Collins, Colorado and we are all very excited and confident that Colorado State University will be a great place to host this years tournament. Fort Collins is a beautiful city, and Colorado State is an awesome school (it is so good in fact, I am considering going there myself!).

At this point I am just rambling :D , but I wanted to assure you that this is going to be an awesome tournament, and if you have any questions, shoot me a personal message or just reply here and i'll do my best to answer (if i know). :)

With all these people saying that 2016 was amazing and 2017 was trash... now I wish I was better in 6th grade lol.

TBH i thought 2017 was good enough but I havn't been to any other comps to say for sure. Hopefully Colorado would be nice
