Not everything is up yet - we are working on it. Note that none of the exams went through any sort of revisions process - Florida State does not currently do that.
It is our hope that UFSO will be able to host states at UF next year and the tournament will be under the direction of UFSO Eboard. We are currently already communicating with UF administration to determine if this will be something we can move forward with (the scale of the tournament is much larger than our regional and we have some administrative red tape to navigate before committing to anything).
You guys ran Protein Modeling right? I didn't see it anywhere on the site...
He said some of the events aren't up yet.
Thank you to all who helped out with WikiProject Tournaments of States! <3

Protein Modelling exams are given to regional/state sites from MSOE and therefore most of it wasnt written by us and I believe the same tests are used nationally so we wont post that. There were some additional questions that were included that were written by a few former national medalists in the event from 2016, but Im not sure what has happened to those questions. I will see if we can get that posted.

It had been a week, I was just following up :)

Working on a March 28th date, but not confirmed yet. It will likely be 1-2 months before a date and location is set (UF or UCF).

March 28 would be fantastic :) How about regional? I hope the regional dates will be closer this year, so we can have more meaningful invitationals for everyone. I pledge at least two middle school invitationals again. It could be even three this year. Not sure about high school, but would like to host one. I sure hope you can host a high school invitational as well.

It was a good year overall for us except "oh we were so close" blues at division C. Looking forward to 2019-2020.

Tentatively, the plan is for UF Regionals to be held on January 18th, 2020, and Florida States to be held at UF on March 28th, 2020.

We will not be hosting an invitational because we will have our hands full planning these two tournaments. We are however looking into opening up our regional tournament to other teams from both within and outside of FL to compete "for fun". They would have to pay an additional registration fee and would not receive medals/trophies and would not be included in the final rankings, but they would be able to come and compete. This is a tentative idea that I would love some feedback on.

Curious!! What is the rumor of why the switch from UCF to UF for the state meet. Since you are involved with UF, will you have a 1 mile hike for any event like UCF using the education Gym for 4 events.

I can promise that we will do our best to consolidate event locations as much as possible. The 2019 regional was a bit of a challenge due to administrative issues, but we are starting our room logistics right now actually and hope to resolve it. We also intend to group rooms based on divisions as much as possible, so div b and c will likely be occurring in slightly different parts of campus. The gym is where it is - there isn't much we can do about it. It will be approx 5-12 minute walk depending on which rooms we decide to use. We will give div b priority to be closer to the gym. We plan to try to run our regional similar to the way we will do states as a "dry run" so I would certainly encourage nearby teams to attend our regional if you want to get a feel for what states will feel like.

We are not 100% confirmed for states - but it is pretty likely. We will post an announcement here and via social media when our dates for our tournaments are confirmed.

Will you be uploading the circuit lab national exam that you wrote in the drive?
