The largest binder I've used so far is Herps, which is a nearly full 2.5 inch - though we're shrinking it since it took too long to look through. All of my others are/were smaller - the largest of those was a 2-inch for Fossils.

The aforementioned very large binder is here.

, but none can compare to chalker's monster Crave the Wave binder he showed a picture of once that I couldn't find again.

To be clear, it's not MY binder, I just took a picture of it when I was running It's About Time at Nationals about a decade ago.

Oof. Our thermo binder had 100+ pages from a college textbook plus my 30+ notes on history and conversions.

Back in my Fossils and R&M days we used 5-inch binders, but none can compare to chalker's monster Crave the Wave binder he showed a picture of once that I couldn't find again.

(also why is this in the nats forums lmao)

For Rocks, I think we used a 2", though supposedly my old team lost it while moving things:/. It was a really good binder too...I could have imagined going to 3", but I probably couldn't have done bigger.

In fairness, my Astro binder is only about 25 pages double-sided on this year's material, but the size is inflated because of sheet protectors and because I keep past years' DSO stuff in the back.

(chances are our Hovercraft team's binder is no more than a few pages)

Some people find binders easier to organize or are able to locate pages faster with a binder. Also, some states, like Georgia, don't allow laptops for Astronomy so I'd imagine teams from states like those would invest in having good binders
