is there a way to directly contact one of the supervisors for an event?
it's not about the medals; go out there and have fun. make progress, learn a few things and have one heck of a time; that's all that matters.

This is not recommended. Questions should be submitted through the soinc.org FAQs system.

I predict the tests for Wright Stuff and Boomilever will be the same length as last year.

IMO the questions on the WS and Boom tests will be harder to compensate for the fact that they will be the same length.
