We usually never go to Garnet.
It was first held last year. ;)
ah whoops my bad. Then we've never gone (since we didn't go last year) and it's safe to say that we won't be going in the next few years unless one of the invys we go to gets stopped.

As far as I know, rhino'sfriend isn't from CMS. I don't think theres any affiliation with him and LiteralRhinoceros.... just saying...

Does anyone know why Garnet does not have a 0-block, like nationals and other invitationals have? Thanks.

Take your pick:
Logistically it is harder to do.
Limits the types of Experiments you can do.
Does not match the PA schedule.
What percentage of invitationals really run a 0-block?

Yep, congrats on the awesome performance!
Thanks Satvic and Sciolyperson! It was a real nail-biter. I'm sure a lot of teams who have been here before can relate to this... We were 8th last year, so when Jaime was about to start, I said to one of our coaches next to me, "it'll be fine as long as we're at least 8th". Then Jaime says, "And now for the top 7...." I thought, "there goes that chance!". Then when he called out 7, 6, 5... I looked at the other coach and said "we missed it", but fate smiled down on us. Because I was sure John and his teams from Harlan Rowe were going to be right up there!! Their teams were powerhouses!

I don't think P.J. Gelinas went to Garnet Valley last year either, or am I wrong? Either way, good luck to all in a few weeks!
Yes, congratulations Dr. Cubbin! Unfortunately Harlan Rowe finished in that dreaded 8th spot this year. Hoping to improve for Garnet! See you in a few days!
