I mean, you can still win nats without medalling at all... as long as all your placements are 7ths.

A team averaging around 7-8th across there events has a good chance of winning, your statement is valid.

The Awards Ceremony is scheduled from 7:30 pm to 9:30 pm. Who is taking odds on the ability to stick to that schedule? I do not think I have been at a Combined Div B/ Div C National Awards Ceremony that has taken less that 3.5 hours....
Last year, awards’ scheduled start time was 7:30, and awards concluded and people were dismissed at about 10:25. Maybe they’ll manage to get all of the scores in on time this year to remove the typical delay at the beginning.
Last year's awards seemed never ending...that could be because it was the first time we medaled in ZERO events.
I know how you feel...

NOTE: At least for me, it helps to make a live spreadsheet and keep track of all the medals solely for you and your teammates' benefit, especially when you know you probably won't get a medal.

IRC is usually a fun time during the awards ceremony. It's reliably the highest traffic IRC gets each year. Even if there isn't wifi there, IRC usually does not use a ton of data (especially if you get a mobile client).

Not me...
Are you supervisor for B or C for circuit?

The Tournament Google Map looks cool! What’s the best way to use it on mobile, just in a browser?

From testing it, I'd say the best thing is to open it on mobile from our website, then click the little icon on the top right of the map to open it in your Google Maps app (if you have that downloaded). When you're using it in the app, I think it's the easiest to navigate.

Nats2019, is there any way to guarantee the HVAC will be off during flying time in Friday? It is probably already going to be dangerous with the crowd of people, but the sporadic and unpredictable airflow may cause further damage to the planes.
