You are right.
I will ask my advisor how to deal with this issue and ask them to speak for themselves. This happened 6 months ago but I never talked about this problem with those two people.
EastStroudsburg13, I want to clarify what you are saying. Dedication + attendance is a first priority, right? I definitely agree with that.
Yep, that's exactly what I intended. Reward those putting the time in!

Just move your team to NC, and then you'll be allowed to keep all 18 people ;)
Better yet, move 'em to this part'a Tennessee, have 'em homeschooled, and bolster our 4 people per division.

Actually, the issue has been resolved because 3 people who are going to DECA states can't do Science Olympiad (date conflicts for regional).
Nevertheless, thank you for the advice! Last year some people weren't motivated to attend the meetings because we didn't do much. The meetings were in classrooms to meet with our partners and discuss what we had to work on.
Also, I think not everyone had perfect attendance because we weren't close with each other.
