Solar Systems
Really?

Most people I know enjoy deep space stuff (content of Reach for the Stars) more then Solar System.

OT: Sound of Music for Div C because that event was made for band geeks.
Yeah, but identifying constellations from dot clusters is a
Pain in the butt.

Towers and Thermodynamics/Keep The Heat. For two years strait now, I've built devices in both events that could be competitive at the higher levels of competition, but have had to abandon them because the events were rotating out.

towers especially, and elevated bridge. I dont know about you guys, but Boomi is a pain. I dropped it as an event because I hated it that much. Im glad bridges returns, but the year after I rotate out of div B? come on!

I really hope so, but Im not an expert on div C event rotations, so Im not sure. I am REALLY looking forward to robots next year, especially if it is like robo billiards.

I want Dynamic Planet Earthquakes and Volcanoes to come back sooner. I love Glaciers, but Earthquakes are much more interesting. I can't wait three more years...
