Anatomy at MO. The event was well run, all questions were answered and the ES really knew the event well. Also, the test was well written (though it was all short answer).

This was at NC States this year. In Dynamic Planet, we got rock candy because there was a question about it. It was great after being stressed all day.

When the event supervisor remembers you from the previous year and asks if you're the kid that almost lost his eye if I hadn't worn safety glasses but got cuts and had slivers on my cheek and forehead from wood shrapnel from the shattered dowel from my mousetrap vehicle. He gave my partner and I candy after we finished our run.

Whenever Iolani school runs Forensics, it's amazing, well for Hawaii standards. No other school runs the event because it requires so many physical pieces, but Iolani always pulls through. Their tests are a good mix of trivia and analysis/ID and I always feel satisfied when I leave the room.

In my experience, Iolani has always run events pretty well. Props to them.

Showing some Hawaii love, in the couple of times I've seen Mililani run chem lab, it's always been a great in-depth test and lab. Not just surface level "hOw acidic is this" or "wAhts the usEs of BoRic AciD." Good range of difficulty with the questions, and I'm pretty sure the distributions showed it.

We had this guy during the heredity regs session just in the middle of the session turn on some rock music, plugged in his earbuds, and start dancing and air guitaring in the middle of the room. For a good 30 minutes, while a bunch of middle schoolers were crying over dihybrid crosses and solving affairs, this guy was having the time of his life. We almost didn't finish the test, it was like incomp entertainment, you couldn't really stop watching. Wish every event was like that.
