Usually I do 5 or 6, depending on the competition.

I normally try to get 7-8, but end up with 4-6. Last year was 6, this year I'll have 4 or 5 because I go from the top of B division to the bottom of C.

5 because that's how many time slots we have in our state schedule

7-8? I'd love to get that many but don't you think its unfair to other team members who may want...o i dont know...more than 3? Unless they don't of course.

I get around 5...

In Nebraska, you're not allowed to do more than 4 events at the state tournament. Are you really allowed to do that many events in your states? I just stick with my 4, although I probably could do more at invitationals if I wanted to.

Probably 3, maybe 4 this year, seeing as I'm the youngest on the team. I did 5 last year and did quite well in all but one (which I hated, but was forced to compete in anyways). I had 4 events the year before that and again, did well in all but one (because I failed at building stuff).
