The schedules for states are up:

Division B
Division C

I'd be interested in hearing what people still competing think about cutting down to 5 timeslots. It looks like they avoided creating any new rigid conflicts by taking a pairing of events and making them self-schedule.

I think that it will be either really helpful, or a big hindrance. For those doing a lot of events, it might mean that some of the "self-scheduled" events are fairly dictated, which will in turn dictate the time slot for their partner. On the helpful side, it might mean that you don't have to wait eons in between events if you have only the early or later blocks.

A 5 hour day is definitely a disadvantage to smaller teams. This year there are 49 people-slots and if you put that in 5 hours, you have to average 10 people every hour. Ten years ago, we went to State with 9 people. That would be tougher to qualify now, depending on how the regionals will be run.
