I saw your comment and started freaking out. It was there my freshman year and I didn't do it and now this entire year I've been dying to.

Obviously it is really early but, based upon the Summer Institute the events for 2014 are below.
I would put more faith in the ones that are staying rather than the "new ones".

My reaction was the same, except I was freaking out more, I'm sure. I did do it freshman year, and it is the best. event. ever. I didn't think that it was going to return for another 2 years, and that I wouldn't be getting another chance to do it. I am soooo excited for it (presuming they do keep it for next year...if they got rid of it now, I would probably die). Too bad you really need the rules to start working on it.

I am a freshman ... but Mission Possible does seem interesting! Although I'm really sad that Forestry's cycling out ... D:

I bet they are getting rid of Remote Sensing next year and replacing it with GeoMapping.

Pftttt. Everyone knows Geomaps is the best event on Earth :P (ah, remember the good ol' times when we did that together). My only issue is that once you master aspects of the event I feel like everyone becomes REALLY close on it. Like at states, I talked to 18th place and 4th place, and we were all somewhat similar minus 1 or 2 out of the 5 pages. But that was because those pages were insanely tough in comparison (which again shows the imbalance in difficulty).

Also, to make it harder they added a random landform ID, which favored the people who were doing Dynamic (it was about glaciers mostly). Though, I would imagine just to mess with everyone they'd add a remote aspect to it (which would be completely doable). Pretty much, it is at this point to me "know all of geology." I don't mind that...but I wouldn't mind at least a slight revision (though, this year's rules was a vast improvement over last year's).

I'd love to do Geo Mapping if I was still in high school! It should be fun, even if it is slightly difficult. :)

I mean, it was way more fun when I actually started to understand how aspects of it worked (and if you can't find sources you'd probably panic hehe). But I still found the aspects I said to be somewhat annoying.
